CEO and Co-Founder, Gad Berdugo, MSc Eng., MBA, stated, This is a real game changer for personalized cancer vaccines. It will enable our precision immunotherapy to treat patients in the neoadjuvant clinical setting before surgical removal of their tumors, potentially improving the patients clinical outcome.. Dominique Bridon, PhD, CTO said, Personalized cancer vaccines are created based on information obtained from an individuals tumor. Previously, the process to create an a personalized vaccine starting from tumor biopsy took at least 12 to 18 weeks. We expect that reducing this time to less than 4 weeks will improve the effectiveness of our personalized vaccine candidates in attacking the tumor.. Arjun Balar, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Director Genitourinary Medical Oncology Program, NYU Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, NYU Langone Health said, The ability to generate a vaccine that is ready for use in a patient in under 4 weeks is a critical advancement.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Personalized dendritic cell-based tumor immunotherapy. AU - Janikashvili, Nona. AU - Laemonier, Nicolas. AU - Katsanis, Emmanuel. PY - 2010/1. Y1 - 2010/1. N2 - Advances in the understanding of the immunoregulatory functions of dendritic cells (DCs) in animal models and humans have led to their exploitation as anticancer vaccines. Although DC-based immunotherapy has proven clinically safe and efficient to induce tumor-specific immune responses, only a limited number of objective clinical responses have been reported in cancer patients. These relatively disappointing results have prompted the evaluation of multiple approaches to improve the efficacy of DC vaccines. The topic of this review focuses on personalized DC-based anticancer vaccines, which in theory have the potential to present to the host immune system the entire repertoire of antigens harbored by autologous tumor cells. We also discuss the implementation of these vaccines in cancer therapeutic strategies, their ...

Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. In developed as well as developing countries, breast cancer is the most common cancer found among women. Currently, treatment of breast cancer consists mainly of surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and radiotherapy. In recent years, because of increased understanding of the therapeutic potential of immunotherapy in cancer prevention, cancer vaccines have gained importance. Here, we review various immunotherapeutic breast cancer vaccines including peptide-based vaccines, whole tumor cell vaccines, gene-based vaccines, and dendritic cell vaccines. We also discuss novel nanotechnology-based approaches to improving breast cancer vaccine efficiency. ...
University of Queensland researchers have developed a vaccine delivery technology that enables treatment to be tailored precisely for different cancers.. UQs Professor Ranjeny Thomas said the technology had the potential to improve the precision of cancer immunotherapy, leading to better cancer outcomes and reduce harmful side-effects.. Flexible cancer vaccines are a long-sought treatment strategy in cancer immunotherapy, Professor Thomas said.. Cancer vaccines represent a precision cancer treatment strategy which stimulates the immune system to attack cancer cells without affecting other cells in the body.. While a new class of immunotherapy drugs, called checkpoint inhibitors, has promising results in previously untreatable cancers, they are only effective in a limited proportion of cases, and may have inflammatory side-effects.. Current cancer vaccines have limited flexibility and effectiveness.. The solution, tailored NanoEmulsion technology, results from a new approach to cancer ...

I am on a plane heading to speak to a multiple myeloma support group meeting today in Jackson, Mississippi. I just completed reading a series of articles in the last issue of Cure Magazine about the future of using cancer vaccines to fight cancer.. Magazine editor, Debu Tripathy, introduced the concept in his page 11 Message From the Editor. He began by stating Cancer vaccines are no longer a long shot. Followig a long and technically detailed explanation of the challenges facing researchers in the field, Dr. Tripathy states: The main step to devise successful cancer vaccines has been to find cancer-specific targets-proteins or other substances that would single out cancer cells. However, since some cancercells originate from normal cells, it is nearly impossible to develop a tqarget that is not self. So the next barrier is to delicately maneuver the feedback mechanisms to allow a vigorous immune reaction to cancer cells.. His conclusion: While the effectiveness of the immune response will ...
DC4Us GlycoDCTM dendritic cell targeting technology can be applied to significantly enhance anti-tumor immunity and generate a long-lasting anti-tumor response. This can be achieved by glycan modifications of tumor associated antigens or peptides derived from these antigens.. Successful immunotherapy against cancer depends on the activation of tumor-specific CD8+T cells as these cells have the appropriate machinery to destroy cancer cells. In addition, activation of CD4+T cells has shown to be beneficial to obtain potent tumor-specific CD8+T cells. The efficacy of T cell activation critically depends on how the antigen is processed by antigen presenting cells (APCs) such as dendritic cells (DCs) and routed intracellular to be presented on MHC molecules. T cells recognize tumor antigen-MHC complexes with their T-cell receptors (TCRs) as well as signals derived after engagement of co-stimulatory receptors on APCs. DCs are the most potent APCs to activate T-cells and are present as network in ...
Despite recent advances in cancer immunotherapy, no prospectively validated intermediate biomarkers exist to predict response. These biomarkers are highly desirable given modern immunotherapys paradoxical pattern of clinical benefit; that is, improvement in overall survival without short-term change in progression. Immunotherapy clinical trials have evaluated biomarkers that may correlate with clinical outcomes. Many of them are performed on peripheral blood to evaluate the systemic response, such as tumor-targeted humoral and cellular immunity, and cytokine responses. Accumulating evidence suggests that immune infiltrates in tumors may suggest evidence for the therapys mechanism of action, and have greater potential for providing prognostic and predictive information. In addition, a non-immunologic biomarker, such as tumor growth kinetics, may explain this paradoxical pattern of clinical benefit, and predict survival in patients treated with an immunotherapy. Prospective assessment and validation of
Virus-based cancer therapies are emerging as a potent treatment of cancer, with numerous therapies currently in clinical evaluation. The approach is straightforward. Using high doses of genetically-modified virus as a delivery vehicle, patients can be immunized against tumor antigens associated with a particular tumor type or other markers of malignant cellular transformation. Alternatively, a patients immune system can be activated via expression of immunostimulatory proteins that are localized via the direct injection of virus into the tumor mass. These types of virus-based approaches have demonstrated impressive responses in several different tumor types including brain, prostate, lung, colon, and other cancers.. The viral vector is responsible for delivering the vaccine, and is therefore a critical component in a functional cancer vaccine. Each viral vector has unique characteristics that can be beneficial for the delivery of transgene(s). For example, pox viruses, vaccinia, modified ...

Immunotherapy has long been proposed as a novel method of specifically, safely and inexpensively treating cancer. Despite decades of research and hundreds of clinical trials, only one therapeutic cancer vaccine has been approved for human use. The vast majority of these clinical trials have been carried out in terminally ill patients with advanced cancer. These patients are severely immune compromised. The studies herein demonstrate that multiple immunosuppressive mechanisms develop within prostate tumors as they progress. These mechanisms include the accumulation of regulatory T cells in the prostate tumor, and increased expression of TGFβ and indoleamine 2,3 dioxygenase in the prostate tumor. Vaccination of mice with spontaneously arising prostate cancer against tumor-associated antigens is vastly superior to immunization at later stages of disease, when tumor microenvironments are more suppressive. A novel murine model of prostate cancer in which major mediators of immune suppression - ...

A therapeutic cancer vaccine from Oxford BioMedica that failed in a clinical study may still help a subset of patients, researchers said on Tuesday.
Current vaccine strategies for COVID-19 include mRNA vaccine, DNA vaccine, adenovirus vector-based vaccine and inactivated virus vaccine, with the goal of generating neutralizing antibody that reacts to Spike, the viral surface protein of COVID-19. The neutralizing antibody blocks entry of virus to host cells through ACE2 receptor. Accumulating evidences have suggested that developing permanent immunity remains challenging, exclusively by targeting heavily glycosylated Spike protein or rapidly mutating viral surface proteins such as influenza HA. Differing from these vaccine strategies, the engineered DCs are designed to empower T cells to fight virus. DC-educated T cells recognize viral antigenic peptides complexed with HLA molecules on the surface of virus-harboring host cells and launch subsequent attack to eliminate virus. Furthermore, a given viral protein in host cells is processed into multiple antigenic peptides that are bound to distinct HLA molecules, this provides many targets for ...

DC vaccines represent a promising therapy for cancer; however, their efficacy is frequently suboptimal. For example, a recent prostate cancer vaccine trial found that treatment resulted in a superior outcome, but the improvement in median survival was only 4.1 months (33). The very modest efficacy of DC vaccination was substantiated in our model by the vaccines inability to improve survival in WT mice. However, we found the efficacy of DC vaccination could be markedly improved in the absence of Nlrp3.. The effect of Nlrp3 in the tumor environment was unanticipated because the established signals for inflammasome priming and activation are not present. Our results and those of others suggest this concept is changing. Li and colleagues (35) have shown that the Nlrp3 inflammasome can be activated in a sterile setting by necrotic cancer cells. Priming is accomplished by an excess of extracellular matrix components and activation is completed by ATP released from dying cancer cells (36). These ...

Treos Bio Reports Updated Positive Results from a Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial of Precision Cancer Vaccine Plus Maintenance Therapy in Patients with Metastatic Colorectal Cancer - - San Francisco (California)
Cancer immunotherapy faces a serious challenge because of low clinical efficacy. Recently, a number of clinical studies have reported the serendipitous finding of high rates of objective clinical response when cancer vaccines are combined with chemotherapy in patients with different types of cancers. However, the mechanism of this phenomenon remains unclear. Here, we tested in mice several cancer vaccines and an adoptive T cell transfer approach to cancer immunotherapy in combination with several widely used chemotherapeutic drugs. We found that chemotherapy made tumor cells more susceptible to the cytotoxic effect of CTLs through a dramatic perforin-independent increase in permeability to GrzB released by the CTLs. This effect was mediated via upregulation of mannose-6-phosphate receptors on the surface of tumor cells and was observed in mouse and human cells. When combined with chemotherapy, CTLs raised against specific antigens were able to induce apoptosis in neighboring tumor cells that did ...
Cancer cells are capable of fooling the immune system so that they can grow and spread undetected by the bodys natural defence system. This process is called immunosuppression and is a challenge that must be overcome for effective immunotherapy. Brain tumour vaccines work by encouraging the immune system to recognise tumour specific proteins (known as antigens), and destroy the tumour cell.. There are various forms of cancer vaccines which are given to a patient to encourage an anti-tumour immune response. These include peptides which mimic tumour antigens, whole lysed tumour cells, RNA and DNA vaccines. The one that has been developed furthest in clinical trials for brain tumours is a dendritic cell vaccine.. This innovative treatment takes immune cells called dendritic cells from a patient, and re-programmes them to stimulate an immune attack on a range of targets on cancer cells, as well as recruiting other immune cells to help, thereby involving the whole immune system.. Oncolytic ...
Drug giant Novartis is making a multimillion dollar bet that a patients immune system can be cancers worst enemy. It is teaming up with scientists at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) in Philadelphia to develop and manufacture cancer immunotherapies.. Last August, UPenn scientists announced the dramatic results of a tiny clinical trial of their immunotherapy approach, describing long-lasting remissions in leukaemia patients for whom standard therapies had stopped working. Trials are also underway for other leukaemias and for lymphoma, mesothelioma, myeloma and neuroblastoma, according to the university. In the US$20-million collaboration, announced today, Novartis, which is based in Basel, Switzerland, will get exclusive worldwide rights to these technologies.. The deal comes just a week after Dendreon, a biotechnology company based in Seattle, Washington, that developed the first cancer vaccine on the market, laid off 600 workers because of weak sales.

EDMONTON, AB and DARMSTADT, GERMANY, April 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Biomira Inc. (NASDAQ:BIOM) (TSX:BRA) and Merck KGaA of Darmstadt, Germany, said today preliminary results from a randomized, open-label Phase IIb trial of BLP25 liposomal vaccine (L BLP25) in patients with Stage IIIb and IV non- small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) indicate that the median survival of those patients on the vaccine arm was 4.4 months longer than those on the control arm. Although not statistically significant, the overall median survival is 17.4 months for patients on the vaccine arm versus 13 months for the patients on the control arm. Importantly, the observed two-year survival for patients with locoregional Stage IIIb disease is 60 per cent for the vaccine arm (median survival not yet reached) versus 36.7 per cent for the control arm (median survival of 13.3 months). In the overall patient population the two-year survival is 43.2 per cent for the vaccine arm versus 28.9 per cent for the control arm. Our overall ...

latest cancer vaccine deal looks better than the last, but it still isnt what Id call a stellar deal.. Youll recall that the biotech licensed its pancreas and prostate cancer vaccine to be used in combination with Aduro BioTechs CRS-207 for nothing up front. Zip. Zero. Nada.. BioSante was able to get something for licensing its melanoma vaccine, but the up front payment amounted to a measly $100,000. Thats not going to pay a whole lot of bills for its lead compound, LibiGel.. If the melanoma vaccine works, BioSante will be reap rewards on the back end. Its eligible for $39 million in milestone payments and undisclosed royalties on sales of the drug.. The licenser of the melanoma vaccine, the John P. Hussman Foundation, is an interesting choice for a partner. The nonprofit has dedicated $11 million to developing the drug, and it appears to be planning to ship it off to some larger drug developer once it has more clinical data. BioSante will get between 15% and 33% of the sublicense ...
