4D pharma will present data outlining key aspects of the mode of action of MRx0518 – the company’s single-strain live biotherapeutic in immuno-oncology – at the Microbiome R&D Business Collaboration Forum: Europe meeting on March 21 in Rotterdam.

Research carried out by 4D has identified a specific component of the bacteria, flaA, that plays a key role in the activity of MRx0518 by stimulating pathways that are known to be associated with the body's response to cancer. Interaction of flaA with the human protein Toll Like Receptor 5 (TLR5) has been linked to the activity of MRx0518 in pre-clinical cancer models and this will be investigated further in upcoming clinical trials.
