Seres Therapeutics to Present at World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress

Sep 8th, 2022 7:00 EST

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seres Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRB), a leading microbiome therapeutics company, today announced that Matthew Henn, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Seres, will be presenting at the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress being held on September 7-8, 2022 in National Harbor, Maryland. Dr. Henn will present at 12:00 p.m. ET today a presentation entitled: “Microbiome Therapeutics to Potentially Transform the Management of Antimicrobial Resistant Infections.” The presentation will review additional Phase 3 clinical data indicating that SER-109 engraftment reduced pathogens that can harbor antimicrobial resistance genes and preclinical data supporting the development of SER-155 for targeting bacterial antimicrobial resistant (AMR) infections in medically compromised patient populations.

“Antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections are a significant public health concern and represent an all too frequent life-threatening complication in individuals requiring allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, facing cancer, and other immunocompromised groups,” said Dr. Henn. “Seres’ clinical and preclinical data suggest that microbiome therapeutics may provide a novel approach to reduce the risk of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection. We hope to meaningfully improve outcomes in multiple medically compromised patient populations, such as cancer neutropenia, cirrhosis, and solid organ transplant, that have limited treatment options for AMR infections and bacteremia.”

Seres’ approach developing microbiome therapeutics for Infection Protection has been clinically validated by the Company’s SER-109 program, an investigational product for the prevention of recurrent C. difficile infection. Supported by a completed Phase 3 development program, a SER-109 Biologics License Application (BLA) has been filed with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the commercial launch is anticipated in the first half of 2023. Building upon SER-109 clinical data, Seres is evaluating SER-155 in an ongoing Phase 1b study in individuals undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and at elevated risk of life-threatening Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) and Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) infections. Seres is also developing additional preclinical stage programs targeting Infection Protection in medically compromised patients.

About Seres Therapeutics

Seres Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRB) is a leading microbiome therapeutics company developing a novel class of multifunctional bacterial consortia that are designed to functionally interact with host cells and tissues to treat disease. Seres’ SER-109 program achieved the first-ever positive pivotal clinical results for a targeted microbiome drug candidate and has obtained Breakthrough Therapy and Orphan Drug designations from the FDA. The SER-109 program is being advanced to prevent further recurrences of C. difficile infection and has potential to become a first-in-class FDA-approved oral microbiome therapeutic. Seres is evaluating SER-155 in a Phase 1b study in patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation to reduce incidences of gastrointestinal infections, bloodstream infections and graft-versus-host disease as well as additional preclinical stage programs targeting Infection Protection in medically compromised patients. The Company is also conducting research to inform further development of microbiome therapeutics for ulcerative colitis.
