A developer of live biotherapeutic products (LBP) derived from stool donations had a lead product in phase 2 clinical trials for metabolic pathology secondary to hepatic pathology. An investor for whom Alacrita had previously worked on several assignments requested a due diligence focusing on the scientific rationale, the novel production technology, the regulatory position and commercial prospects. 


We deployed a team with experience of microbiome-based products across a variety of technologies and indications. The team reviewed all key documentation including:

  • Business plan including budgets;
  • Key research reports, scientific advisory board minutes, etc;
  • Regulatory correspondence including the application to conduct clinical trials;
  • Clinical trial protocols, investigator brochures and data where available;
  • Manufacturing process and analytical approach/validation status;
  • Plans for scale up to commercial scale and timing vs. clinical development milestones.

Our conclusions were that this company had successfully established a class-leading manufacturing technology coupled with state-of-the-art quality and analytical systems. The team had proven itself capable of overcoming several significant technical hurdles and was exceptionally well-placed considering the relative "youth" of the company.
