AOBiome LLC is developing first-in-class topical biologics for the treatment of inflammatory skin conditions. We have developed extensive scientific and manufacturing expertise on the use of beneficial ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB). AOB are naturally occurring bacteria that metabolize the ammonia found in sweat, creating both nitrite and nitric oxide, with both anti-inflammatory and anti-infective properties. The therapeutic potential of nitrite and nitric oxide are widely recognized, although as yet, largely unrealized as delivery, let alone targeted delivery is extremely difficult. The company's proprietary AOB offers the potential of a first-in-class natural delivery system for nitrite and nitric oxide.
