Poster Title: “DPX-Survivac
and intermittent low-dose cyclophosphamide (CPA) with or without
epacadostat (E) in the treatment of subjects with advanced recurrent
epithelial ovarian cancer (DeCidE1 trial): T cell responses and tumor
infiltration correlate with tumor regression.”
Abstract Number: 5576
Session Title: Gynecologic Cancer
Date and Time:
DPX-Survivac is the lead candidate in IMV’s new class of immunotherapies that programs targeted T cells in vivo. It has demonstrated the potential for industry-leading targeted, persistent, and durable T cell activation. IMV believes this mechanism of action (MOA) is key to generating durable solid tumor regressions. DPX-Survivac consists of survivin-based peptides formulated in IMV’s proprietary DPX drug delivery platform. DPX-Survivac is designed to work by eliciting a cytotoxic T cell immune response against cancer cells presenting survivin peptides on their surface.
Survivin, recognized by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a promising tumor-associated antigen, is broadly over-expressed in most cancer types, and plays an essential role in antagonizing cell death, supporting tumor-associated angiogenesis, and promoting resistance to anti-cancer therapies. IMV has identified over 15 cancer indications in which the over-expression of survivin can be targeted by DPX-Survivac.
DPX-Survivac has received Fast
Track designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (
