Microbiome - Targeted Therapeutics in Immunology - Thematic Research

·4-min read

Summary The microbiome is considered the genetic material of all microorganisms existing in and on the human body. Large resident microbial communities exist in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, skin, and respiratory tract, and an imbalance or compromised variety in these populations can contribute to immunological disorders.

New York, July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Microbiome - Targeted Therapeutics in Immunology - Thematic Research" -

Emerging therapies and increasing knowledge around the microbiome are expected to help meet the unmet needs of patients across various indications in Immunology. Therapies targeting the microbiome have been termed Live Biotherapeutic Products (LBPs) by regulatory authorities and each of them aims to address disease by altering the microbiome.

23 microbiome-targeting therapeutics are currently being developed in the US and 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK) for GI, dermatological, and respiratory conditions. The majority of these drugs target GI indications and are in earlier stages of clinical development. Four pipeline agents are in late-stage Phase II trials: 4D Pharma’s Blautix for irritable bowel syndrome, AOBiome’s B-244 for acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis, Evelo Biosciences’ EDP-1815 for psoriasis, and Seres Therapeutics’ SER-287 for ulcerative colitis. These drugs are expected to launch within the next five to six years.

Key Highlights
- The main drivers of growth include increased development interest from large pharmaceutical companies and partnerships with small and mid-size biotechs.
- The main barriers to growth include market access issues such as potential lack of reimbursement by payors for some indications and potential safety concerns, such as those seen in the use of fecal microbiota transplant (FMT).
- The most important unmet needs for microbiome therapies include the need for additional therapy options for mild-to-moderate patients, lack of knowledge and clinical data regarding mechanism of action, as well as current low utilization of microbiome therapies like FMT.
- The regulatory agencies of the US and 5EU are beginning to develop the definition of LBPs to describe microbiome-targeting therapies derived from live strains. However, a unique formal regulatory approval track has not yet been defined.
