PureTech Health noted that Vedanta Biosciences has entered into a translational collaboration with the NYU Langone Medical Center focused on developing microbiome-derived immunotherapies for cancer patients being treated with checkpoint inhibitors.

Daphne Zohar, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at PureTech, said:

"Recent studies have highlighted the role of the microbiome in immuno-oncology, and it's exciting to work with Dr. Weber and the NYU Langone Medical Center to expand Vedanta's pipeline of immune-boosting microbiome derived therapeutics and checkpoint inhibitor combinations."
