OncoSec is currently focused on developing advanced-stage OMS ElectroOncology therapies to treat solid tumors and metastatic disease.
The company recently announced it had entered into an exclusive manufacturing agreement with DNA plasmid services business VGXI Inc (VGXI) for the production of its CAncer immunotherapy.
The company said the exclusive agreement is signifiCAnt as it uses VGXI's patented DNA plasmid manufacturing process to produce the drug, CAlled interleukin-12 plasmid DNA (DNA IL-12), used in OncoSec's OMS ElectroImmunotherapy program.
OMS ElectroImmunotherapy is currently being developed in phase II studies for the treatment of three rare skin CAncer indiCAtions - metastatic melanoma, Merkel cell CArcinoma and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
The loCAlly administered and potentially systemic ElectroImmunotherapy program uses the OMS system to deliver the DNA-based immunotherapy, known as DNA IL-12.
The OMS electroporation system has proven to enhance cellular uptake, effectively treating CAncerous cells while sparing surrounding healthy tissue cutting through the toxic side effects of current available treatment options like chemotherapy and radiation.
OncoSec uses its OMS electroporation delivery system that applies short electric pulses to cells, CAusing the opening of pores in the cell membrane, and allowing for the efficient and safe delivery of immunotherapy or chemotherapy agents to treat a range of solid tumour CAncers.
Shares increased 4.28 per cent to 0.195 cents Thursday afternoon.
