Company Overview of Advaxis, Inc.
Advaxis, Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company, focuses on the discovery, development, and commercialization of Lm-LLO cancer immunotherapies in the United States. The Lm-LLO immunotherapy platform technology stimulates the immune system to induce antigen-specific anti-tumor immune responses involving innate and adaptive arms of the immune system by inhibiting the T-cells, tregs, and myeloid-derived suppressor cells, and MDSC to promote immunologic tolerance of cancer cells in the tumor. Its lead product ADXS-HPV, an Lm-LLO immunotherapy product candidate used for the treatment of human papilloma virus (HPV) associated cancers, completed its Phase II study. The company is also develop...

Advaxis, Inc. Provides Additional Information on Clinical Hold
Nov 2 15
Advaxis, Inc. provided additional information about the clinical hold issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the Company’s Investigational New Drug (IND) application for axalimogene filolisbac. Since announcing the verbal notification of the clinical hold of axalimogene filolisbac, Advaxis has received written notification from the FDA of the clinical hold. Since early October, Advaxis has been in an ongoing dialogue with the FDA. Over the course of these discussions, the FDA has identified certain risk mitigation measures for implementation once the hold is lifted. The Agency requested proposals from the Company regarding such measures. The Company promptly provided its recommendations, including appropriate patient inclusion /exclusion criteria, as well as certain patient surveillance and monitoring measures. Further, the FDA has concurred with the Investigator’s assessment that the patient’s cause of death, in the safety report triggering the clinical hold, was due to cervical cancer progression. While no additional safety concerns have been identified by the Agency, it also verbally notified the Company that the clinical hold included the INDs for ADXS-PSA and ADXS-HER2 so that their evaluation, and any mitigation measures, could be simultaneously applied to all product candidates. Advaxis is continuing to work with the FDA to facilitate review and resolution of this matter. The Company expects that the clinical hold will be resolved without significant interruption to its clinical development programs.
Advaxis Launches Research Collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Oct 27 15
Advaxis, Inc. announced the launch of a research collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), a premier cancer center committed to patient care and innovative research, to evaluate the immunologic and anti-tumor activity of patient tumor-specific, neoepitope-based immunotherapy. The goal of the collaboration, titled “MINE™” (My Immunotherapy Neo-Epitopes), is to use Advaxis’s Lm Technology™ to develop neo-epitope immunotherapies based on an individual patient’s tumor (“ADXS-NEO”). MINE™ will first focus on a preclinical study of Advaxis’s new construct approach to evaluate the immunologic effects and anti-tumor activity of a personalized immunotherapy in a mouse tumor model. Advaxis will use learnings from the MINE™ collaboration to identify and target neoepitopes using Lm Technology™ and later develop patient specific immunotherapy constructs that incorporate the neoepitope sequences identified in the patient’s tumor cells. Clinical studies using ADXS-NEO, to be conducted at MSK, are in development.
