OncBioMune Selects Theradex as CRO for Two Phase 2 Trials of ProscaVax for Prostate Cancer


Posted on: 08 Mar 18

BATON ROUGE, La., March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OncBioMune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB:OBMP) ("OncBioMune" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of a proprietary immunotherapy cancer vaccine technology and targeted cancer therapies, is pleased to announce that the Company has selected Theradex as its contract research organization (CRO) for both the planned Phase 2 clinical trials evaluating the experimental immunotherapeutic vaccine ProscaVax for prostate cancer, one at Urology Centers of North Texas (UCNT) and the Harvard University teaching hospitals.

Theradex served as the CRO for the successfully completed Phase 1a trial of ProscaVax hosted at the University of California San Diego Moores Cancer Center and the Veterans Hospital in La Jolla, California.

In the UCNT trial, ProscaVax, the Company’s lead drug candidate consisting of a combination of prostate cancer associated prostate specific antigen (PSA) with the biological adjuvants interleukin-2 (IL-2) and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), will be evaluated in a similar patient population as the Phase 1a trial, hormone-naïve and hormone-independent recurrent prostate cancer patients with increasing PSA.  The Phase 2 study at the University will be the first mid-stage trial of its type that the Company is aware of, with ProscaVax being administered as a front-line treatment for patients in “active surveillance,” meaning they are in the early stage of disease, have received no treatment for their prostate cancer and are only working with their oncologist to monitoring the cancer for signs of progression.

“Experts in oncology and the clinical process, Theradex was invaluable to us in the initial trial of ProscaVax and we’re certain that their experience and guidance will again be of utmost importance in the planned mid-stage studies,” commented Dr. Jonathan Head, Chief Executive Officer at OncBioMune. “What we are trying to achieve by addressing prostate cancer at the earliest stage and in the most advanced stage is critically important to improving patient care in a cancer with very limited options across the disease spectrum.  We look forward to working with Theradex again and to getting these studies underway.”
