Exosomm is a FoodTech company supported by Galil Ofek Innovation. Inspired by the virtues of mother milk and its unique health properties, the company is creating patent-based nutritional solutions with naturally isolated milk exosomes that are beneficial in cases of inflammation, infection, and cancer.
IBD, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, both incurable chronic inflammatory diseases. IBD patients suffer from abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, prolonged fevers, decreased appetites, and weigh less as a consequence. They are at high risk for bowel cancer and despite all current treatments, a large number of patients will not go into remission, 50% will require surgical intervention, and will suffer from low quality of life. Moreover, current nutritional therapies are only partially effective.
The company’s first product is a food formula with a patented active anti-inflammatory ingredient. The food formula is designed to reduce inflammation scores and prolong periods of remission in patients with IBD.
With proven isolation protocols, protected IP, and valuable partnerships, we envision a better tomorrow for millions of IBD patients worldwide, and the creation of a wide range of exosome-based nutritional products for a variety of medical conditions.
