Alimentary Health Announces Additional Clinical Studies Evaluation Agreement with Procter & Gamble
Alimentary Health is a leader in pioneering the development of safe and effective therapeutics for GI and other indications. AH probiotic technology such as Bifantis® (Bifidobacterium infantis 35624), has been clinically proven to manage a full range of episodic digestive upsets, including constipation, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, urgency, gas and bloating. Bifantis is only found in the daily probiotic supplement Align® which is being marketed by P&G in the US under a current licensing agreement with AH. This new Clinical Studies Agreement is designed to further explore the clinical benefits of AH technology over the next several years.
Under the terms of the agreement, AH would be entitled to receive undisclosed milestone payments based upon clinical performance.
Barry Kiely, CEO of Alimentary Health, said "today's announcement that Procter & Gamble has chosen to undertake further clinical evaluation for Alimentary's probiotic technology reflects the successful relationship we have had with the company since 2001. This project will focus on evaluating the clinical benefits of AH's probiotic technology for gastrointestinal indications. We are delighted to extend and expand our relationship with Procter & Gamble and look forward to updating our stakeholders on our progress,"
