Social/Environmental challenge

Unmet medical need in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Currently, >20% of all patients are non-responsive to existing treatment options, resulting in suffering and reduced quality of life.

Increasing AMR: the eradication rate of H. pylori is decreasing globally due to increasing antibiotic resistance. H. pylori is included on WHO’s list of “high priority pathogens” as a bacterium that has the potential to pose a serious threat to public health.

Access gap to innovative medicines: For most innovative medicines, it takes years after market approval in high incomes countries until the product is introduced across low- and middle-income countries.
