Our clinic, Phage Therapy Center Ltd., located in Tbilisi, Georgia, is the oldest and best qualified clinic in Georgia that caters to foreign patients. Founded in 2003, the clinic specializes in three particular situations where bacteriophage therapy tends to be superior to standard and advanced treatments (including antibiotics) in the US and Western Europe:
- chronic infections;
- infections where circulation is poor; and
- infections with bacteria that are resistant to standard or advanced antibiotics.
Phage therapy is used broadly in Georgia, which has been the global center of phage expertise for over 80 years. We are the longest operating and most experienced clinic of its kind in Georgia, now entering our tenth year of operation with a success rate exceeding 80%.
Phage Therapy Center and our affiliates have developed novel technologies, methodologies and protocols for treatment of patients with very long term chronic infections. We specialize in treatment of chronic UTI, chronic prostatitis, chronic sinusitis and non-healing wounds. We apply a holistic, integrative approach to treatment of chronic patients. Not only is the infection cleared but also the general health is significantly improved.
About Phage Therapy Center
Phage Therapy Center provides an effective treatment solution for patients who have bacterial infections that do not respond to conventional antibiotic therapies.
There are a number of difficult infections that do not respond well to current, state-of-the-art therapies in the US and Western Europe. Bacteriophage therapy (also known as phage therapy), which has been used to treat bacterial infections in Eastern Europe over 80 years, is getting a renewed and increasing amount of attention as a promising answer to many of these infections. Bacteriophage therapy is used broadly in certain parts of the former Soviet Union, particularly the country of Georgia. A large majority of established physicians in Georgia prefer phages over antibiotics as first-line therapy for a broad variety of infections. While we do not anticipate that phages will replace antibiotics as the first-line, general antibacterial therapy in major Western countries; we do, however, see a promising role for phages in situations where antibiotics alone are not sufficient.
