The Eliava Phage Therapy Center - located on the premises of the Eliava Institute of Bacteriophages, Microbiology and Virology (EIBMV) in Tbilisi, Georgia - is the result of the scientific and medical expertise of more than 90 years' Experience in bacteriophage therapy. The modern center focuses on the treatment with bacteriophages of various infections resistant to antibiotics. The specialties are internal medicine, pediatrics, urology, gynecology, ENT, endocrinology and surgery.
Self-funded, the search for new phages is permanent.
The Georgian professor Guiorgui ELIAVA came to work at the Institut Pasteur in Paris and met the discoverer of phage therapy: Félix d'Hérelle. Both have worked extensively together on phagotherapy and have become very close friends. So much so that Felix d'Hérelle and Guiorgui ELIAVA went together to Tbilisi in 1921 to create an Institute entirely dedicated to phage therapy.
This is how the Eliava Institute of Phage therapy was born in 1923.
Despite the arrival of antibiotics, Georgians have never stopped the practice of phage therapy.
The Eliava Phage Therapy Center has provided and cared for the whole of the Soviet Union for bacteriophages (phages) for decades, and still provides Ukraine, Poland, Russia and of course Georgia.
