Rockville, MD. Rise Therapeutics, a biotechnology company developing first-in-class targeted immunological-based biologics using a unique and proprietary oral delivery platform, highlighted today a new publication in the journal Science that highlights mechanisms by which the microbiota engage host immune pathways to improve immunotherapy. The article examines recent pre-clinical studies that found that the peptidoglycan hydrolase Secrete Antigen A (SagA) is able to promote immunotherapy responses and synergize with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) to drive tumor regression in animal model studies. These results support development of novel synthetic biology medicines to be used in conjunction with ICI therapy.
