Committed to patients and their families

At Assembly Bio, patients are our first priority. Through our work, we understand the challenges involved in living with illnesses like chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV). That‘s why we’re focused on finding a cure for this widespread, potentially devastating disease. At the same time, we are exploring how to best leverage the therapeutic potential of the human gut microbiome to improve the treatment and transform the lives of patients with serious digestive disorders and other difficult-to-treat conditions.

We know how difficult the road ahead can sometimes seem when navigating the complexities of a disease, evaluating treatment options, and doing your best to balance everything else in life. It is the needs of patients that direct and inspire us to work harder and smarter to advance cures and potentially life-changing treatments.

“It’s time to end the deadly hepatitis B virus that has killed more than 800,000 people a year, including my own family members. Finally, it appears to be happening with increased awareness and research into new therapies. I’m especially encouraged by the efforts of Assembly Bio to develop better treatments that could lead to a cure. If they succeed, it’ll be transformational for patients, like me, whose lives are threatened by hepatitis B each day.”
