SCIB1 Trial Update

17th April 2012

Scancell Holdings Plc, (AIM: SCLP), the developer of therapeutic cancer vaccines, is pleased to announce the completion of recruitment to the Phase I clinical trial of SCIB1, its DNA ImmunoBody® vaccine being developed for the treatment of melanoma. The trial is being conducted in five UK centres in patients with Stage III/IV disease, and it is anticipated that Phase II trials will commence in the next few weeks. 

Scancell has obtained approval from the Cohort Review Committee to commence the Phase II study using the 4mg dose, the highest dose used in the Phase I part of the study. The approval is based upon safety data collected after all patients have been treated for 6 weeks. The Phase I patients will continue to be treated and followed up for a total of 6 months. 

Professor Lindy Durrant, Joint CEO of Scancell Holdings and Professor of Cancer Immunotherapy at Nottingham University, commented: 

“The recruitment of patients to early stage cancer studies can be very challenging and it is a tribute to both the dedicated Scancell team and the efforts of our clinical investigators that we have now completed recruitment for the Phase I part of the study. We expect recruitment for Phase II to be substantially faster than for Phase I and hope to treat the first patient in this part of the study within the next few weeks.”
