Leading BioSciences believes the gastrointestinal tract is the foundation of human health — and that when this essential organ is disrupted, it can drive a variety of serious acute and chronic medical conditions.
Within the GI tract is an ecosystem of enzymes, bacteria, barriers, tissues, nutrients, mucin, mucus, food and communities of microorganisms that work together to shape our health, as well as our illnesses. Of critical importance is how the integrity and permeability of the intestinal mucosal barrier impacts health. Leading BioSciences refers to this ecosystem, as well as the barriers that protect the rest of the body from these potent elements, as the GastrobiomeTM.
Leading BioSciences has amassed a deep scientific understanding of the gastrobiome and the intestinal mucosal barrier, which we leverage to develop novel therapeutics and diagnostics for addressing widespread medical indications, including acute critical-care conditions and chronic, daily-maintenance health issues.
