Component Type: Session
Level: Intermediate

Live biotherapeutics, an emerging new class of drug products which leverage living microorganisms, have potential to prevent, treat or cure diseases or conditions. Leveraging next generation sequencing and other -omics technologies researchers are gaining a greater understanding of the human microbiome and the role it plays in human health, drug metabolism and disease. Experimentation with fecal transplants have shown promise in treating patients with C. difficile infection and IBD and researchers believe there are many more opportunities to significantly improve human health. This session will explore the unique challenges in developing this new class of precision medicines.

Learning Objectives

Explain the microbiome and how it is being used to develop a new class of personalized medicines; Describe the unique clinical development, requlatory, manufacturing, and quality challenges faced when developing live biotherapeutics and approaches to overcome these challenges..
