Microbiome therapy advances



The first clinical results from a microbiome therapy being developed for indolent non-Hodgkin B cell lymphoma were promising, indicating that a therapy based on synthetic peptides can successfully target multiple cancer cells, according to the developer Enterome SA. In a Phase 1/2 clinical study, EO2463, which consists of four synthetic peptides, selectively targeted multiple B cell markers, enabling the destruction of malignant B lymphocytes abundant in the cancer. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a slow-growing cancer of the white blood cells.
