MimiVax Phase 2 study of SurVaxM in combination with pembrolizumab opens for recurrent glioblastoma patients
This is a Phase 2 study now open at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland OH. The goal is to establish safety and tolerability of the drug combination and assess clinical activity of SurVaxM with pembrolizumab in patients with recurrent glioblastoma. Patients at first recurrence of glioblastoma who have failed prior chemotherapy and radiation are eligible.A The results of this study will be used to further clinical development of this combination in glioblastoma.Effective treatment options for recurrent glioblastoma are extremely limited and survival after recurrence is often less than 7 months. This phase 2 study of SurVaxM plus pembrolizumab builds upon the results of recent trials demonstrating SurVaxM's safety and efficacy in treating glioblastoma. SurVaxM triggers T-cell immunity simultaneously with unique antibody-mediated anti-tumor responses.MimiVax's proprietary product portfolio is based on technology licensed from Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. The company plans to initiate a pivotal randomized study of SurVaxM in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma to be performed at cancer centers across the USA and China. MimiVax is advised by Varia Ventures, LLC on financing matters and Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP on legal matters.
