Lonza and Organobalance sign licensing agreement

BASEL, SWITZERLAND/BERLIN, GERMANY: Lonza and Organobalance signed a global exclusive license agreement in which Lonza will develop, produce and commercialize products containing a probiotic Lactobacillus strain. Developed by Organobalance GmbH the probiotic strain acts against Helicobacter pylori (H pylori), implicated as a common cause of peptic ulcers and gastritis.

Currently, about 50 per cent of the global population is infected with H pylori. However, this new probiotic strain demonstrates great potential in helping to maintain a balanced H pylori concentration.

“This agreement with Organobalance creates a basis for Lonza to enter the probiotic market - a market with vast growth potential, with a unique ingredient. Integrating the Lactobacillus anti-H pylori strain into our nutrition ingredient portfolio provides an opportunity to leverage our biotech expertise and knowledge to provide a highly effective product to the nutrition landscape,” said Roman Quinter, Senior VP and Head of Nutrition Ingredients business, Lonza.
