Following the Reuters Events Pharma USA 2024, PharmaShots brings an engaging conversation with Moreno Perugini, President, of Néstle Health Science. Moreno begins the conversation by highlighting Néstle’s journey to become a full-fledged pharma company through a series of acquisitions and deals.  

Moreno recalls Néstle’s transitioning into a pharmaceutical company when the company got the rights for Zenpep, post Allergan’s merger with AbbVie. In 2023, Néstle, along with Seres Therapeutics announced the commercial availability of VOWST, the first and only approved treatment for recurrent C. difficile infection (CDI). 

In 2024, the pharmaceutical division of the company is focused on its gastrointestinal pipeline.
