Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:INO) shares eased down after opening to traded at $6.03 as Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (INO) reported that an interim data analysis showed that its INO-5150 cancer immunotherapy product generated antigen-specific CD8+ killer T cell responses measured in peripheral blood from subjects with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer.
The immunology results demonstrate that INO-5150 treatment as a monotherapy generated prostate specific antigen (PSA) and prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) specific T cell responses in peripheral blood in 60% (35/58) of the subjects. Moreover, patients with specific CD8+ T cell responses experienced dampening in the rise of PSA and important increases in PSA Doubling Times (PSADT). PSA is a prostate cancer associated biomarker and positive changes on PSA levels could signal INO-5150’s potential positive impact on the treatment of prostate cancer. These results were presented as a poster discussion on September 10th at the 2017 European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) meeting in Madrid, Spain. Dr. Neil Shore, MD, Medical Oncologist at Urologic Associates of North Carolina, and the principal investigator of this study said, “Immunotherapy is an exciting new approach being evaluated for the treatment of many cancers including prostate cancer, where a small subset of patients have been shown to demonstrate clinical benefit from such therapy in the form of checkpoint inhibitors. Our study provides encouraging immunologic and clinical data that Inovio’s immunotherapy product can generate antigen-specific CD8+ killer T cell responses in the blood and link such responses to PSA changes in prostate cancer patients. Our results suggest that further evaluation of this product in prostate cancer patients should be explored.”
