Personal Importation of Unapproved Medications

Phage Therapy Center ships bacteriophages and other natural medications to our patients for personal, non-commercial use. In some cases an infection can be resistant to bacteriophages. To ensure efficacy of the bacteriophage preparation, it is always advisable for the patient to first send a biological sample of the infection. From this sample our clinical lab will test sensitivity of the infection to bacteriophages and match the infection with the coorect medication.
