About The World Immunotherapy Congress
Immunotherapy currently offers the brightest hope for cancer treatment. New developments with checkpoint inhibitors and co-stimulatory targets have enabled some stunning breakthroughs and high optimism for the
sector. Recently, there have been some incredibly exciting new therapies in the field.
Our vision is to bring together the full community and provide a single meeting point for the whole value chain. It is where science meets business to make immunotherapy the cornerstone of the fight against
The event is new, though the ideas and relationships are not. The event comes out of our discussions with leading clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, biotechs and research institutes held every year at the
successful European Antibody Congress, now in its twelfth successful year.

Scancell is developing novel immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer based on its ImmunoBody® and Moditope® technology platforms.
Scancell’s first ImmunoBody®, SCIB1 is being developed for the treatment of melanoma. Data from the Phase 1/2 clinical trial demonstrate that SCIB1, when used as monotherapy, has a marked effect on tumour
load, produces a melanoma-specific immune response and highly encouraging survival trend without serious side effects. In patients with resected disease there is increasing evidence to suggest that SCIB1 may delay or prevent disease recurrence.
Scancell’s ImmunoBody® vaccines target dendritic cells and stimulate both parts of the cellular immune system: the helper cell system where inflammation is stimulated at the tumour site and the cytotoxic Tlymphocyte or CTL response where immune system cells are primed to recognise and kill specific cells.
Pre-clinical data on a combination of SCIB1 or SCIB2 and checkpoint inhibition (blockade of the PD-1 or CTLA-4 immune checkpoint pathways) have shown enhanced tumour destruction and significantly longer
survival times than when either treatment was used alone.
Scancell has also identified and patented a series of modified epitopes that stimulate the production of killer CD4+ T cells that destroy tumours without toxicity. The Directors believe that the Moditope® platform could
play a major role in the development of safe and effective cancer immunotherapies in the future.
