Can We Help You?

Phage Rx has teamed with the Eliava Phage Therapy Center in Tbilisi, Georgia to provide therapy for chronic and acute infections.   With decades of experience Eliava specialists have developed protocols for treatment of many common, yet difficult to treat infections including those listed below.
Skin and soft tissue infections
Skin and soft tissue infections can be fungal rather than bacterial, so proper diagnosis is critical. We have successfully treated Staphylococcus (S. aureus) or simply staph; MRSA, which are staph strains unresponsive to methicillin and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, often acquired in hospital settings and spread to the skin through contact.

Staphylococcus
Klebsiella
Bone and joint infections
The occurrence of bone and joint infections, including hospital acquired prosthetic joint infections, is increasing. Foot ulcers associated with diabetes are also increasing and Staph (S. aureus) is a common accompanying infection. We can help with chronic and acute bone and joint infections including staph, osteomyelitis, arthritis, and foot ulcers.

Eye infections
Eye infections such as bacterial conjunctivitis Many eye infections are caused not by bacteria but by fungi, toxins, and viruses. For this reason, proper diagnosis by the Center is critical. The causative agents in bacterial conjunctivitis quite often are Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Pseudomonas, all of which are treated regularly and successfully at the Center with bacteriophages.

GET HELP

Streptococcus
Escherichia coli
Urinary tract infections
Chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs) and male chronic prostatitis are among the more common problems we can help with. Bacteria often are the cause, and Escherichia coli (E. coli), Klebsiella, and Enterobacter are often the associated pathogens. Many UTI’s are becoming increasingly antibiotic resistant, an additional reason for treatment with bacteriophages.

GET HELP

Gynecological bacterial disorders
Many vaginal infections are caused not by bacteria but by fungi (especially yeast), and viruses. For this reason, proper diagnosis is critical. The causative agents in bacterial vaginitis are varied, but include the displacement of normal Lactobacillus bacteria by other bacteria, including Staphylococci. Chronic vaginitis is treated regularly and successfully at the Center with bacteriophages.

GET HELP

Lactobacillus
Proteus
Ear, Nose, Throat infections
The Center has excellent success treating ENT infections. Acute bacterial sinusitis is often caused by Streptococcus, Proteus, and Staphylococcus, which are all common phage treatments at the Center. Ear infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa also are regularly treated.

GET HELP

Respiratory infections
Respiratory infections, some acquired in hospitals or associated with compromised immune systems and thus, which can be life-threatening, are often treated at the Center. Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, and Klebsiella are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics and therefore are excellent candidates for bacteriophage treatments here.

GET HELP

Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Enterococci
Bacterial infections of the oral cavity
The Center treats gingivitis and stomatitis if caused by certain bacteria, though not all oral infections are due to bacteria and there are numerous species of bacteria in the cause infections. Diagnosis from samples is the best way to start.

GET HELP

Gastrointestinal conditions
The Center has a long and successful history treating bacterial gastrointestinal issues, a history spanning across almost 100 years. Numerous microbiome infections including pathogenic E. coli, Salmonella, and Enterococci are treated regularly at the Center with bacteriophages. The Center also has broad success treating Irritable bowel syndrome, often caused by the same pathogens.

Salmonella

Phage treatment can be effective against diseases caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria, where antibiotics have failed. Many patients who were facing life-threatening bacterial infections have been successfully treated.  In some cases, a combination of antibiotics and bacteriophages is used.

We offer diagnostic services to identify the pathogen that is causing the infection, determine its phage susceptibility; selection and preparation of specific autophages to target the pathogen as required and phage treatment.

Not all infections respond well or at all to bacteriophage treatment. Factors depend on the overall health of the patient, the type of bacteria, the severity of the infection, and any complicating factors. In all cases, it is necessary that the medical history of the patient and a bacterial sample be made available prior to treatment so that the scientists and physicians can evaluate whether an effective phage is available and whether phage treatment is possible. That is why it is important to acquire as much information from patients as possible to assess individuals and raise the likelihood of success of the treatment.
