BriaCell Therapeutics (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), a biotechnology company developing targeted, safe treatments for cancer, sees a promising future for its lead product candidate, Bria-IMT. An article discussing the company reads, “The company recently presented promising results for two of its clinical studies (monotherapy and combination study of Bria-IMT with pembrolizumab [KEYTRUDA®; manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.]) for patients with advanced breast cancer during the 2018 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in Texas (http://nnw.fm/5YriX). … ‘I am very excited about our data continuing to show robust biological activity of Bria-IMT™ in advanced breast cancer,’ Dr. Bill Williams, BriaCell’s president & CEO, said of the company’s presentation at the international symposium that attracted over 7,000 academic and private physicians and researchers (http://nnw.fm/Po3A0). ‘These findings also reinforce our product development strategy for Bria-OTS™, BriaCell’s novel off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy, by showing predictability of the anti-tumor responses in patients using a relatively simple and inexpensive HLA test.’”
BriaCell is an immuno-oncology focused biotechnology company developing targeted and safe approaches for the management of cancer. BriaCell is currently conducting a Phase I/IIa clinical trial of Bria-IMT, its lead candidate, in a combination study with pembrolizumab [Keytruda; manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.] or ipilimumab [Yervoy; manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company]. The combination study is listed in ClinicalTrials.gov as NCT03328026. BriaCell is developing Bria-OTS, an off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy, for advanced breast cancer. Bria-OTS immunotherapy treatments are personalized to match the patient without the need for personalized manufacturing. Bria-OTS, which is expected to cover over 90 percent of the patient population, is designed to produce a potent and selective immune response against the cancer of each patient while eliminating the time, expense, and complex manufacturing logistics associated with other personalized immunotherapies.
