Posted on: 15 Feb 18

The "Drug analysis: OncoVAX" drug pipelines has been added to's offering.

OncoVAX (Vaccinogen) is a personalized cancer vaccine that uses the patient's own cancer cells to prevent tumor progression after surgery.

Vaccinogen uses a proprietary method for dissociating and purifying cancer cells from a resected tumor, and the resulting vaccine is thought to induce a robust and functional immune response in the patient. To prepare the vaccine, autologous tumors are excised, enzymatically dissociated to separate tumor cells from healthy cells, and irradiated to render the tumor cells non-proliferating and non-tumorigenic, but metabolically active. Patients receive four intradermal immunizations over the span of six months, as per the OncoVAX protocol: two injections consisting of irradiated tumor cells compounded with a live-attenuated mycobacteria adjuvant, followed by two injections consisting of irradiated cells only.

Following promising results from a Phase IIIa trial, a confirmatory Phase IIIb trial in Stage II resected colon cancer was initiated in May 2015.
