FloraSeq enters into agreement with the Medical College of Wisconsin to conduct clinical research study of FloraSeq’s FS-0809 capsules for treating recurrent Clostridium difficile (C. diff).
FloraSeq is proud to be one of nine winners of a Wisconsin Innovation Award (www.wisconsininnovationawards.com). Out of 180+ nominees, the 35 finalists were whittled down over a couple rounds of submissions and judging, with awards being announced Aug 16th in UW-Madison’ Union Theater. We were honored to be part of this great event celebrating an impressive array of innovations coming out of WI. Story in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel featured a picture of our capsules.

The data will be important in establishing that the freeze-dried capsules are effective in small scale studies and will support “fast-track” FDA regulatory filings

The mission of the event was to strengthen regional partnerships and create a stronger startup hub within the healthcare sector.
