16:46 EDTIMUCImmunoCellular presents updated ICT-107 Phase II data
ImmunoCellular Therapeutics announced that updated efficacy and safety data from the phase II trial of dendritic cell-based immunotherapeutic vaccine ICT-107 in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme, GBM, were presented at the 2014 American Society for Clinical Oncology, ASCO, annual meeting in Chicago. When overall survival. OS, and progression-free survival, PFS, were assessed in pre-specified patient subgroups, results favored treatment with ICT-107 over control in HLA-A2 patients within each of the two major MGMT subgroups. While the subgroups were small in size, and not powered to show statistical significance, the numeric advantages in favor of ICT-107 treated patients were shown to be large and clinically meaningful. HLA, human leukocyte antigens, are cell-surface antigen-presenting proteins. These molecules are on dendritic cells and present the tumor-associated antigens to T-cells to induce the immune response to the ICT-107 vaccine. HLA-A2 was one of two HLA types that were treated in the phase II trial. Of the two types, HLA-A2 is twice as common in the population as HLA-A1, and is the most common HLA type in North America and the EU.
