Imago BioSciences Announces First Participant Dosed in Investigator-Sponsored Phase 1 Study of Bomedemstat in Combination with Venetoclax in Relapsed/Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Venetoclax is a BCL-2 inhibitor approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of several hematologic cancers, including in combination with azacytidine for elderly patients with AML unable to tolerate the standard of care.

Acer Therapeutics Announces $1.5M Private Placement

The proceeds from the private placement will be used by Acer Therapeutics for working capital and general corporate purposes and, together with Acer’s existing cash and cash equivalents, are expected to be sufficient to fund the Company’s anticipated operating and capital requirements through the fourth quarter of 2022.

AC Immune’s Alzheimer’s Disease Vaccine-candidate ACI-35.030 Selected for Further Development

Dr. Andrea Pfeifer, CEO of AC Immune SA, commented: “The selection of ACI-35.030 for further development is a significant step for this collaboration. Early clinical testing showed that ACI-35.030 was generally well tolerated and induced specific activity against the pathological species of Tau, including the neurotoxic pTau and enriched paired helical filaments (ePHF) species, both of which are closely implicated in Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

TransCode Therapeutics Announces eIND Submission to US FDA for Planned First-in-Human Clinical Trial in Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors

The planned clinical trial is to evaluate TransCode’s lead therapeutic candidate, TTX-MC138, in cancer patients with advanced solid tumors. ​TTX-MC138 is designed to inhibit the pro-metastatic RNA, microRNA-10b, described as the master regulator of metastasis in a number of advanced solid tumors. TransCode Therapeutics believes that TTX-MC138 could be used as a treatment for many of these cancers.

Clinical Microbiomics, a pioneering microbiome research company, today announced its acquisition of MS-Omics, a leading metabolomics provider based in Denmark.

Clinical Microbiomics is particularly known for its pioneering work on clonal-level microbiome profiling that is recognized as the most sensitive, precise, and comprehensive in the field.

With this acquisition, Clinical Microbiomics adds leading expertise in metabolite profiling from MS-Omics to further advance its systems biology platform and help researchers worldwide understand the microbiome and how to impact health and disease.

Anders Grøn, CEO at Clinical Microbiomics, commented:

“There is an unmet need in the microbiome field for better solutions to integrate microbiome and metabolome data. This demands a truly interdisciplinary approach – one that is made possible through this acquisition. We’re excited to engage with our network of researchers around the world to bring the new platform and services to work.”

Why is this important?

Microbiome science is widely proposed as the next frontier in addressing our most urgent health challenges and organizations worldwide are exploring this potential by developing nutritional products, live-biotherapeutics, and diagnostic tests.

The microbiome impacts health via the metabolites that it produces or modifies. This includes secondary microbial metabolites, conversion of food and drugs, and human-derived metabolites such as bile acids. In fact, the microbiome is a major source of variation in the human metabolome.

This interplay is too complex to understand from the microbiome functional potential or the metabolome alone. Clinical Microbiomics is utilizing advanced bioinformatics and systems biology to integrate the two disciplines paving the way for new innovations.

Morten Danielsen, CEO at MS-Omics, commented:

“This transaction is a big milestone for our companies. It is a result of a strategic dialogue where it became clear that together we would be uniquely positioned to address microbiome research questions across the field. Together, we will be in position to offer a differentiated portfolio of services, lead the way with innovative concepts designed specifically for the fast-growing microbiome field, and benefit from improved sales coverage around the world”

Earlier this month, Clinical Microbiomics announced the finalization of a EUR 10 million investment from Seventure Partners’ “Health for Life Capital™ II” fund.

Since its foundation in 2015, Clinical Microbiomics has been innovating at the forefront of microbiome science. The company is working with the world’s leading academic institutions and microbiome innovators across food, nutrition, and consumer health companies.

Importantly Clinical Microbiomics hosts the richest data-warehouse on the market with 30k+ samples linking 3M+ bacterial strains to clinical phenotypes and is offering GCP-compliant microbiome research services for clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry.
