"Earlier investigational studies of IGV-001 have shown promising results and we look forward to presenting the progress towards our upcoming placebo-controlled phase 2b study," said John Furey, CEO of Imvax. "Our team is enthused by the continued momentum of this study and the impact IGV-001 might have on those fighting GBM."

IGV-001 is a first-in-class personalized immunotherapy for GBM that uses the patient's own tumor cells combined with an antisense molecule to induce a potent immune response. The investigational treatment comprises irradiated autologous glioma cells with an antisense oligodeoxynucleotide directed at the IGF-1R (insulin-like growth factor type 1 receptor). Delivered through an implantable and removable biodiffusion chamber, antigenic products are released and initiate both an innate and adaptive immune response.
