More than 3 million people in the U.S. suffer from celiac disease, making it more common than ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Unfortunately, the only current treatment for celiac is a gluten free diet. It’s an area that Dr. Alessio Fasano knows a great deal about. As a leading gastroenterologist, Dr. Fasano directs the Center for Celiac Research at Mass General and a visiting professor at Harvard Medical School, specializing in the treatment of patients of all ages with gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, wheat allergy and gluten sensitivity.
9 Meters BioPharma (NASDAQ: NMTR) is a development stage company that focuses on rare and unmet needs in digestive diseases and unique GastroIntestinal (GI) biology. Their lead candidate, Lazarotide, is the first drug to move into a Phase 3 trial in celiac. The study will be completed in 2022 and has been given fast-track designation by the FDA.
9 Meters also has 4 other programs in their pipeline including a Phase 2 trial of a treatment for Short Bowel Syndrome, a debilitating condition related to poor absorption of nutrients as a result of at least half of the small intestine being removed due to accident or illness.
Join our webinar to hear from 9 Meters President and CEO, Dr. John Temperato and Dr. Alessio Fasano about Lazarotide and the four other GI therapies the company has in its pipeline.
