Activating the patient’s immune system to fight cancer
Targovax (OSE:TRVX) is a clinical stage immuno-oncology company developing immune activators to target hard-to-treat solid tumors. Targovax’s focus is to activate the patient’s immune system to fight cancer, and thereby bring benefit to cancer patients with few available treatment alternatives. Targovax is assessing its product candidates in different cancer indications, including melanoma, mesothelioma, and colorectal cancer, and has demonstrated a favorable safety and tolerability profile.
Targovax’s lead clinical candidate, ONCOS-102, is a genetically modified oncolytic adenovirus, which has been engineered to selectively infect cancer cells and activate the immune system to fight the cancer. On the back of very encouraging clinical data in several indications, both as monotherapy and in immunotherapy and chemotherapy combinations, the next development step for ONCOS-102 will be to further improve immune activation and clinical response in melanoma patients resistant to PD1 checkpoint blockade.
Building on successful phase 1/2 studies demonstrating clinical benefit and providing deep mechanistic insights, Targovax is expanding its ONCOS program into delivery of circular RNA and targeting KRAS mutant cancers with the aim of establishing a platform for development of a rich pipeline of innovative future immunotherapy product candidates.
