Biomica VP R&D to Present at the Pharmabiotics 2023 Conference on March 21, 2023

Rehovot, Israel – March 14, 2023 – Biomica Ltd., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative microbiome-based therapeutics and a subsidiary of Evogene Ltd. (Nasdaq: EVGN, TASE: EVGN), today announced that its VP R&D, Dr. Shiri Meshner, will be presenting at the Pharmabiotics 2023 Conference, “The Future of Microbiome-based Medicines”, taking place in Lyon, France from March 21-22, 2023.

Dr. Meshner will be presenting on March 21, at 3:40pm CET, in a presentation entitled, “Biomica’s BMC128 – a Rationally Designed LBP Consortium’s Journey to the Clinic.

Biomica’s proprietary BMC128 is a rationally designed consortia of 4 live bacterial strains which demonstrated a significant reduction of cancer tumor volumes and increased survival in pre-clinical animal studies compared to anti-PD1 therapy alone.

BMC128 is currently being tested in a 12 patient Phase 1 open label study (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT05354102) to primarily evaluate its safety and tolerability in combination with anti-PD-1 (Opdivo) in patients with either non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), melanoma or renal cell carcinoma (RCC), in patients whose cancers did not respond to treatment with an anti-PD-1 drug.  The objectives in this Phase 1 trial will also explore efficacy variables.

Dr. Meshner will be available for one-on-one meetings with participants throughout the conference, and those interested should be in touch with her directly.
