"The clinical profile of SER-109 demonstrates the power of Seres' Microbiome TherapeuticsTM discovery platform and gives us high expectations for the advancement of Ecobiotic® candidates in our pipeline for first-line CDI and other serious infections, as well as metabolic disorders and inflammatory conditions."
