Presentation of full TG01 phase I/II clinical trial results in resected pancreatic cancer, by Professor Daniel Palmer
Update on the TG mutRAS neoantigen vaccine development strategy
Review of recent ONCOS-102 interim data in melanoma and mesothelioma
Oslo, Norway, 4 October 2018 – Targovax ASA (OSE: TRVX), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing immune activators to target hard to treat solid tumors, announces that it will host a Capital Markets Day in Oslo on Monday 15 October 2018, from 08:30 – 10:30
The event will include a presentation by a world leading expert on pancreatic cancer, Professor Daniel Palmer, who is the Chair of Medical Oncology at the University of Liverpool and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

Activating the patient’s immune system to fight cancer
Targovax (OSE:TRVX) is a clinical stage immuno-oncology company developing oncolytic viruses to target hard-to-treat solid tumors. Immuno-oncology is currently one of the fastest growing therapeutic fields in medicine.
Targovax’s lead product candidate, ONCOS-102, is a genetically modified oncolytic adenovirus, which has been engineered to selectively infect and replicate in cancer cells. It activates the immune system to generate tumor-specific immune responses. In a phase I monotherapy trial, ONCOS-102 induced both local and systemic innate and adaptive immune activation, with associated clinical benefit. In an ongoing phase I trial, patients who have progressed on anti-PD1 checkpoint inhibitors and treated with ONCOS-102 in combination with Keytruda, demonstrated responses in three of nine patients (33% ORR) including one complete response. ONCOS-102’s lead indication is mesothelioma, where the virus is currently being tested in a randomized phase I/II trial expected to report around new year 2019-20.
