About Micreos

Our engineered endolysin technology quickly kills gram-positive bacteria while leaving the healthy microbiome intact.

Endolysins are associated with a low risk of resistance development and this unlocks an entirely new way of treating a wide range of diseases, especially in chronic conditions.

Micreos is specialised in dermatology and derm-oncology with our 2 lead development candidates focused on eliminating Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) colonisation in patients living with Atopic Dermatitis (AD) and Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL).

S. aureus is a common bacteria that is known to cause significant patient morbidity and mortality globally. S. aureus is found on around 20-30% of healthy people, but in chronic conditions like CTCL and Atopic Dermatitis, the rate is as high as 80%. S. aureus worsens clinical outcomes through the release of toxins and super-antigens leading to the proliferation of malignant T-cells in CTCL and more frequent and more severe flare in Atopic Dermatitis.

Our vision is to fully maximise the potential of our engineered endolysin and antimicrobial vectors platforms to transform the treatment of a broader range of bacteria-induced diseases.

Our vision

Our vision is to fully maximise the potential of our engineered endolysin and antimicrobial vectors platforms to transform the treatment of a broader range of bacteria-induced diseases. We haveĀ  an industry leading discovery and development pipeline with:

  • 2 engineered endolysins in Development
  • 4 engineered endolysins ready for out-licensing
  • 6 new engineered endolysins and antimicrobial vectors in Discovery
  • A world-class team and a state-of-the art laboratory ready for partnering on new bacterial targets and diseases

We are keen to establish partnerships with relevant academic and commercial organisations with the same goal.

Micreos pipeline

*Data from a phase I/II study in patients with AD (n=39; 13 placebo and 26 active treatment) shows that XZ.700 in concentrations up to 100 ug/g is safe and well tolerated for twice daily administration for up to 14 days to patients with mild to moderate AD.

We welcome collaboration with partners who share our ambition, please contact Trine Ahlgreen:
