BiomX To Present Pre-clinical Data at the Plenary Session of the AACR Microbiome, Viruses, and Cancer Conference  

BiomX, a microbiome company developing both natural and engineered phage therapies, today announced that the company will present pre-clinical data from its colorectal cancer program at the plenary session of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Microbiome, Viruses, and Cancer Conference taking place from February 21-24, 2020, in Orlando, Florida. BiomX's colorectal cancer program utilizes phage to target bacteria that are naturally present within tumors, with the aim of converting ?cold' tumors to ?hot' by delivering a payload (i.e. an immunostimulatory payload) to the tumor and eradicating tumor-protective bacteria.

Details of the presentation are as follows:

Abstract Title: "Novel Phages Targeting The Intratumor Associated Bacteria Fusobacterium Nucleatum"
Date: Sunday, February 23, 2020
Time: 10:15 a.m. ? 12:15 p.m. ET
Plenary Session 5: Oncogenic Viruses, Part 2
Poster Number: B20

About Phage Therapy
Bacteriophage, or phage, are viruses that target bacteria and are considered inert to mammalian cells. Phage are designed to target and kill specific bacterial species or strains without disrupting other bacteria or the healthy microbiota. All of BiomX's phage-based product candidates derive from its proprietary platform, which is first used to discover and validate the association of specific bacterial strains with human diseases or conditions, and is then used to develop rationally-designed phage combinations ("cocktails") of naturally occurring or synthetic phage to target pathogenic bacteria. The phage cocktails contain multiple phage with complementary functions optimized through in vitro and in vivo testing.

About BiomX
BiomX is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing both natural and engineered phage cocktails designed to target and destroy bacteria that affect the appearance of skin, as well as harmful bacteria in chronic diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), and colorectal cancer (CRC). BiomX discovers and validates proprietary bacterial targets and customizes phage compositions against these targets.
