VBI Vaccines Inc. (Nasdaq: VBIV) (TSX: VBV) (“VBI”) is scheduled to present at the Society of Neuro-Oncology Annual Meeting on Friday, November 18, 2016 at 7:00 PM MST (5:00 PM EST). The event is being held at the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ.
During the poster presentation, CMV gB/pp65 eVLPs Formulated with GM-CSF as a Therapeutic Vaccine Against Glioblastoma and Medulloblastoma, Dr. David E. Anderson, Ph.D., VBI’s Chief Scientific Officer, will summarize the use of VBI’s eVLP Platform in development of VBI-1901, VBI’s therapeutic vaccine candidate for adult glioblastoma multiform (“GBM”) and pediatric medulloblastoma. VBI anticipates filing an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application with the U.S. FDA in the first half of 2017 to initiate a Phase I/IIa clinical trial in patients with GBM. The FDA will consider a Fast Track designation for VBI-1901 at the time of the IND submission.“Failures of many past therapeutic cancer vaccines can be attributed to several common shortcomings, including the inherently poor immunogenicity of the tumor antigens used, the failure to induce a broadly reactive immune response, and the failure to sustain an immune response,” said Dr. Anderson. “VBI-1901 was designed to address these shortcomings, and we believe this will differentiate it and increase its potential for clinical success.”
Now in its 21st year, the Society of Neuro-Oncology Annual Meeting annual meeting promotes advancements in the field of neuro-oncology through research and education. For more information, visit: http://www.soc-neuro-onc.org/2016-annual-meeting/
