Metagenomics platform drives biomarker and drug discovery
This article was originally published in Start Up
Enterome will use its metagenomics platform to develop drugs that target the effects of alterations in the microbiota, and to identify, develop and commercialize biomarkers. The company's biomarkers will be used to develop diagnostics, and to stratify populations, identifying those most likely to respond to treatment. Enterome is focused on metabolic and bowel diseases, with lead projects in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and in inflammatory bowel disease.

Emerging Company Profile: Gadeta, a Dutch spin-out from University Medical Centre Utrecht, launched earlier this year to develop modified T-cell-based therapies that target metabolic dysregulation in solid and hematological malignancies.
PeptiMimesis is developing first-in-class transmembrane therapeutic peptides with potential in immuno-oncology, oncology and immune diseases. Its technology is based on research showing that targeting the transmembrane domain using a single peptide can block several of the processes involved in the development of cancer by disrupting dimerization of target receptors, impairing the formation of receptor complexes and indirectly blocking the subsequent signaling pathways
Redx Pharma PLC and its subsidiaries are focused on developing proprietary, small-molecule therapeutics to address areas of high unmet medical need principally in cancer, infection and autoimmune disease.
