CEO Stephen O’Hara talks through the presentation on LP-LDL®: Cholesterol & hypertension reduction – Next generation pre, pro, and synbiotics that he gave at a conference in Berlin on the 3rd Feb 2017 attended by over 250 scientists from around the world.
The two abstracts relate to the work that OptiBiotix Health plc has undertaken on its cholesterol lowering probiotic.
