SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OncoSec Medical Inc. (OTCQB: ONCS), a company developing DNA-based intratumoral cancer immunotherapies, will attend or present at three events in October. The company’s agenda includes a number of high-profile scientific and investment conferences, following a recent presentation of data at the ESMO 2014 Congress.
Robert H. Pierce, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer said, “It was a great opportunity to be able to present our latest correlative data on IL-12 electroporation at ESMO. In this presentation, we were able to show how our transcriptional analysis of treated melanoma patient samples mirrors what we have seen in the B16 syngeneic mouse tumor model. This gives us increased confidence that our model truly reflects what is happening in patients. These data, which demonstrate that intratumoral IL-12 electroporation is generating a systemic anti-tumor immune response, provide strong support for moving forward with a combination of intratumoral IL-12 electroporation and an anti-PD-1 therapeutic.”
