New Microbiome Startup Seres Health Is Developing Bacteria-Filled Pills to Treat Diseases | MIT Technology Review

Yogurt eaters already know that not all bacteria are bad for you. They may not realize that some bacteria are so important that one day people may fight off disease with pills filled with bacteria instead of drugs.

Seres Health hopes to develop the first regulated, clinically approved bacteria-filled pill to treat diseases associated with disruptions to the microbes inside the human body. The company launched last month with $10.5 million in investments; its founders have been working on the bacteria pill for two years and say they’re already testing one candidate treatment in patients.

This is some very interesting stuff. Viruses, Bacteria, and various microbes and probably products of parasites will be some of the most exciting places for medical breakthroughs in the future. Finally scientists are starting to look at more complex theories and treatments.
