About CEL-SCI Corporation CEL-SCI's work is focused on finding the best way to activate a patient's immune response to fight cancer and infectious diseases. CEL-SCI believes that we should give the immune system the best chance of successfully fighting cancer by administering a cancer immunotherapy drug before surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, a time when the immune system is thought to be strongest. The typical cancer immunotherapy drug development path involves giving a cancer immunotherapy after these conventional treatments.
Its lead investigational therapy, Multikine* (Leukocyte Interleukin, Injection), is currently being studied in a pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial as a potential neoadjuvant treatment for patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Almost 800 patients were enrolled in that study at the end of April 2016. If the study endpoint, which is a 10% improvement in overall survival of the subjects treated with the Multikine treatment regimen plus the current standard of care (SOC) as compared to subjects treated with the current SOC only, is satisfied, the study results will be used to support applications that the Company plans to submit to regulatory agencies in order to seek commercial marketing approvals for Multikine in major markets around the world.
Additional clinical indications for Multikine that are being investigated include the treatment of cervical dysplasia in HIV/HPV co-infected women, and the treatment of peri-anal warts in HIV/HPV co-infected men and women. A Phase 1 trial of the former indication has been completed at the University of Maryland. The latter indication is now in a Phase 1 trial in conjunction with the U.S. Naval Medical Center, San Diego, under a CRADA and UCSF.
CEL-SCI is also developing its pre-clinical L.E.A.P.S. (Ligand Epitope Antigen Presentation System) technology as a potential vaccine for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
