Nitrosomonas eutropha is an ammonia-oxidizing, Gram-negative bacterium from the genus of Nitrosomonas.[3][4][5]

Starting in 2014, it was being tested by the biotech company AOBiome for its possible health benefits on skin.[6] AOBiome started a Phase II trial of an intranasal formulation of the bacteria for migraines.[7][8]
