SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AmpliPhi Biosciences Corporation (NYSE MKT: APHB), a global leader in the development of bacteriophage-based antibacterial therapies to treat drug-resistant infections, announces that CEO M. Scott Salka will present a company overview at the 29th Annual ROTH Conference on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. Pacific time (6:00 p.m. Eastern time). The conference is being held at The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel hotel in Dana Point, California.
Bacteriophages, or more simply “phages,” are the natural predators of bacteria and are thought to be the most abundant life form on earth. Over eons, phages have evolved an incredible diversity of specialist strains that typically prey upon just one strain of bacteria, enabling phage therapies to precisely target pathogenic bacteria while sparing the beneficial microbiota. Phages can infect and kill bacteria, whether they are antibiotic-resistant or not, and even when they have formed protective biofilms.
