Energetically history the drug was discovered at microbia inc which had been spun out of the whitehead institute in 1998 by postdocs from the lab of gerald think to commercialize the lab’s know-how and inventions related to microbial pathogens and biology in 2002 the company hired mark curry who had worked at the cyril division of minsanto and then had gone to sep

Wrecker curry directed the efforts that led to the discovery of linoclothide which was based on an enterotic sin produced by some strains of escherichia coley that caused travelers diarrhea the company started phase-i trials in 2004 under a partnership agreement announced in 2007 between forest laboratories and microbia forest would pay 70 billion in licensing fees
