Stephen O’Hara, CEO of OptiBiotix Health plc said: “I am delighted with the progress OptiBiotix has made since joining AIM in August 2014. In a short space of time we have moved one of our development programmes into clinical studies, progressed our sugar programme designed to create low calorie, sweet oligosaccharides to reduce chronic lifestyle disease such as heart disease, obesity and diabetes, built on our IP portfolio, and reached agreements with a number of commercial partners. During the period, we strengthened the Board with the appointment of Jim Laird, who has brought industry specific commercial and corporate expertise to the Company. I would like to thank our investors for their support since we joined AIM, and look forward to an exciting and rewarding rest of 2015.”
