- Two posters selected for non-clinical data presentation at leading immuno-oncology conference for the Company’s new drug candidate generation, MaaT03X, in combination with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors (ICIs), for the first time.
LYON, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$MAAT–Regulatory News:
MaaT Pharma (EURONEXT: MAAT – the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company and a leader in the development of Microbiome Ecosystem TherapiesTM (MET) dedicated to enhancing survival for patients with cancer, announced today that two abstracts have been accepted for poster presentations at the 38th Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Annual Meeting, the world-leading event in immunotherapy, scheduled to be held from November 1-5, 2023, in San Diego, California, U.S.A. This is the first time that the Company will present non-clinical data in immuno-oncology which include its Artificial Intelligence (AI) screening approach and in vitro results for the first member of the new generation MaaT03X range of products dedicated to improving responses in immunotherapy for patients with solid tumors.
Immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) therapies have become the standard of care for treating solid tumors. However, only around 25% to 35% of patients respond to the treatment. Simultaneously, numerous studies have indicated that immune homeostasis and the diversity and richness of gut microbiota could improve the response to ICI treatment1. This research opens promising new possibilities for enhancing cancer treatment. The Company has chosen to pursue this avenue, focusing on the potential of the gut microbiome’s diversity, richness, and its key functional networks, which could be a game-changer in the field of immuno-oncology in the coming years. In this context, the company has developed an AI-driven program to select the most effective tailor-made microbiome for specific indications in multiple areas, with a first focus on ICI.
SITC Poster Presentations details:
Title: Evaluation of a new co-cultured microbiome ecosystem therapy candidate (MaaT03X) for clinical testing as adjuvant/neoadjuvant to immune checkpoint inhibitors in solid tumors
Abstract Number: 1321
Title: Robust Machine Learning (ML) approach for Screening Microbiome Ecosystem Therapies (MET) Drug Candidates in combination with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors
Abstract Number: 1304
In line with the embargo policy of the congress, additional details on data scheduled to be presented at the 2023 edition of SITC will be released on October 31st, 2023.
