- Results from HERACLES trial in 24 patients with GI-predominant, steroid-resistant grade III-IV aGvHD and from EAP program in 52 patients with aGvHD with GI involvement having failed previous therapies
- MaaT013, the Company’s lead drug candidate, is a high-richness, high-diversity Microbiome Ecosystem Therapy (MET).
Lyon, France, November 9, 2021, 6 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 additional results from its Phase 2 trial HERACLES (NCT03359980) and extended results from its compassionate use (EAP) program for lead microbiome therapeutic MaaT013 will be discussed in an oral presentation at the 63rd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting held from December 11-14, 2021. With these additional data from its MaaT013 Phase 2 trial and from MaaT013 early access program, this is the second year that results from the Company are selected for an oral presentation, and the fifth year in a row that the Company presents data at the ASH conference.
The HERACLES results include data from 24 patients with grade III-IV, steroid-resistant, gastrointestinal (GI)-predominant, acute Graft-versus-Host-Disease (aGvHD) that were treated with MaaT013 as second line therapy. The EAP results include data from 52 patients treated with MaaT013, with steroid-resistant or steroid-dependent aGvHD with GI involvement, who had previously failed 1 to 6 lines (median: 3) lines of systemic therapy; MaaT Pharma provided the product to hospitals under a compassionate access program in France (“accès compassionnel”- EAP). MaaT013 is a high-richness, high-diversity Microbiome Ecosystem Therapy (MET) derived from pooled donations from strictly vetted healthy individuals and is presented as an enema.
The data will be presented by Prof. Mohamad Mohty, professor and head of the Hematology and Cellular Therapy Department at the Saint-Antoine Hospital and Sorbonne University.
