CAMBRIDGE, Mass., January 24, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seres Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRB), a leading microbiome therapeutics company, today announced that it will host a webcast investor event on Monday, January 31, 2022, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. ET.
The event will focus on the development of microbiome therapeutics as a novel approach for infection protection in medically compromised individuals. Clinical data from the Company’s Phase 3 ECOSPOR III trial found SER-109, an investigational oral microbiome therapeutic, to be superior to placebo in reducing CDI recurrence, with 88% of SER-109 patients achieving a sustained clinical response compared to 60% on placebo. Building upon SER-109, Seres is currently evaluating SER-155 in a Phase 1b study in individuals undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and at elevated risk of life-threatening infections. Seres is also evaluating additional preclinical stage programs targeting infection protection in medically compromised patients.
During the investor event, members of Seres’ management and Marcel van den Brink, M.D., Ph.D., Head, Division of Hematologic Malignancies, Alan N. Houghton Professor in Immunology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, will discuss the need for new approaches to prevent serious infections, including antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections, and the potential for microbiome therapeutics.
