MaaT Pharma to Present Promising Clinical Data for Lead Therapeutic Candidate MaaT013 at 48th EBMT Annual Meeting
- Data from 76 patients with acute Graft-vs-Host Disease (aGvHD) treated with MaaT013 will be presented.
- Oral presentation will highlight MaaT013’s potential in improving survival outcome for patients with gastrointestinal acute Graft-versus-Host Disease (GI-aGvHD).
- The data, previously shared at the 63rd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting in December 2021, include results from HERACLES Phase 2 trial in 24 patients with steroid-resistant Grade III-IV GI-aGvHD and from the Early Access Program in France in 52 patients with Grade II-IV GI-aGvHD having failed previous therapies.
Lyon, France, March 17th, 2022 – 6:00 pm CET – MaaT Pharma (EURONEXT: MAAT – the “Company”), a French clinical-stage biotech and a pioneer in the development of microbiome-based ecosystem therapies dedicated to improving survival outcomes for patients with cancer, announced today that positive results from its Phase 2 trial HERACLES (NCT03359980, n=24) and from its compassionate use program (EAP, n=52) for lead microbiome therapy MaaT013 will be reported in an oral presentation at the 48th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT 2022) held as an online event from March 19th to March 23rd, 2022.
The data, previously presented at the American Society of Hematology in December 2021, showed that MaaT013 treatment in patients that developed GI-aGvHD following hematopoietic cell transplantation demonstrated promising objective gastro-intestinal response rate (GI-ORR) in both groups. The observed GI-ORR with MaaT013 treatment at day 28 was 38% in the HERACLES trial, including 5 complete responses (21%), and 58% in the EAP patients, including 17 complete responses (33%). The 12-month overall survival in patients who responded to treatment was 44% in HERACLES and 59% in the EAP program.
Results will be live-streamed and presented by Dr. Florent Malard, Associate Professor of Hematology at the Saint-Antoine Hospital and Sorbonne University, who participated in the HERACLES clinical trial.

MaaT013 is a full-ecosystem, off-the-shelf, standardized, pooled-donor, Microbiome Ecosystem Therapy. It is characterized by a consistently high diversity and richness of microbial species and the presence of ButycoreTM (group of bacterial species known to produce anti-inflammatory metabolites). MaaT013 aims to restore the symbiotic relationship between the patient’s functional gut microbiome and their immune system to correct the responsiveness and tolerance of immune functions. MaaT013 has been granted Orphan Drug Designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for its development in treating acute Graft-versus-Host Disease (aGvHD).
