Microba Life Sciences Caps Off Autoimmune Program with Ginko Bioworks

Microba Life Sciences (ASX:MAP) has completed an Autoimmune disease therapeutic discovery program with Boston-based Ginkgo Bioworks (NYSE:DNA) on time and within budget.

Considered the world-first microbiome therapeutic discovery effort, the program generated 3 million data points with six therapeutic leads with compelling disease-relevant activity.

Moving forward, the next steps for this program is to assess therapeutic efficacy of these 6 lead strains in disease relevant animal models and manufacturing for clinical trials.

“Autoimmune diseases represent a significant unmet need and the identification of potential live biotherapeutics is an exciting development in the creation of new modalities to improve the lives of these patients,” said SVP Trent Munro

“Broken new technical ground”

Commenting on the program, Munro stated: “Microba is at the forefront of developing precision Microbiome Therapeutics, enabled by machine learning and artificial intelligence, that have the potential to help patients in need across a number of disease indications.

“Over the past 2 years, we have broken new technical ground with this project and probed frontier biology imparted by novel microbes derived from the human gut microbiome.

“This approach has now allowed the selection of potent lead candidates that will be progressed as therapeutics.”
