– Event to highlight recurrent CDI market opportunity and SER-109 launch preparations –
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 22, 2022--
Seres Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRB), a leading microbiome therapeutics company, today announced that it will host an investor webcast to discuss the planned commercialization approach and market opportunity for therapeutic candidate SER-109 in recurrent C. difficile infection (rCDI) on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at 8:30 a.m. ET and is expected to be approximately one hour in duration.
In October 2022, Seres announced its Biologics License Application for SER-109 was accepted for Priority Review by the FDA and that a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date has been set for April 26, 2023. SER-109 is an investigational microbiome therapeutic composed of purified Firmicutes spores to prevent recurrence of rCDI. The SER-109 Phase 3 ECOSPOR III study results, initially published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), showed that 88% of SER-109 patients achieved a sustained clinical response compared to 60% on placebo at eight weeks. SER-109 was observed to be well tolerated with no drug-related serious adverse events.
The SER-109 investor webcast will include members of management from Seres Therapeutics, Aimmune Therapeutics, Inc., a Nestlé Health Science Company, as well as Carl Crawford M.D. Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College. The event will review unmet needs in rCDI, SER-109 clinical data, and potential commercialization plans for SER-109, if approved.
