From Idea To Product
We discovered a way not using antibiotics as a treatment for Urinary Tract Infections (UTI). Antibiotic resistance is one of the most urgent threats to the public’s health. Antibiotic resistant bacteria can cause illnesses that were once easily treatable with antibiotics to become untreatable, leading to dangerous infections. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are often more difficult to exterminate and more expensive to treat. In some cases, the antibiotic-resistant infections can lead to serious disability or even death.
Our UTI-Q technology has been tested and a pilot study indicates that our product shows efficacy in uncomplicated UTI. The intellectual property is covered by an approved patent (USA, Sweden). International patents are pending. Our product was awarded in Venture Cup to be among the Top 20 ideas in Sweden 2016.
UTI-Q is currently developed as a medical device product.
