We are delighted that four of the six patients from the 2mg and 4mg dose groups are still alive with one patient remaining disease free two years after initiating treatment.

“We believe our innovative Moditope™ platform has the potential to generate a new class of powerful cancer immunotherapy treatments. We are putting funding in place to identify a lead from this programme and develop it through to the point at which we have secured regulatory approval to start clinical trials, a key value inflexion point. We are confident that such targeted further development of the Immunobody® and Moditope™ platforms will both strengthen Scancell's position as a leading immunotherapy player and allow it to realise an enhanced value for shareholders.”
