About OncoSec Medical Inc.
OncoSec Medical Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company developing its advanced-stage ImmunoPulse immunotherapy to treat solid tumors. OncoSec Medical’s core technology leverages a proprietary electroporation platform to enhance the local delivery and uptake of IL-12 and other DNA-based immune-modulating agents. Clinical studies of ImmunoPulse have demonstrated positive safety and preliminary efficacy in the treatment of various skin cancers, as well as the potential to initiate a systemic immune response without the toxicities associated with other systemic treatments. OncoSec’s clinical programs currently include three Phase 2 trials targeting metastatic melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=oncosec&Search=Search). As the company continues to evaluate ImmunoPulse in these indications, it is also investigating additional indications and efficacious combination approaches.
