Immunovaccine (TSX:IMV) (OTCQX:IMMVF), a clinical stage immuno-oncology company, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Incyte Corporation to expand their ongoing clinical trial collaboration. The Companies plan to add a Phase 2 component to their ongoing Phase 1b combination study evaluating the safety and efficacy of Immunovaccine’s lead candidate, DXP-Survivac, in combination with Incyte’s IDO1 enzyme inhibitor epacadostat and low dose cyclophosphamide in advanced ovarian cancer patients.

As quoted in the press release:

The Phase 2 component will be a randomized, open label, efficacy study that will include up to 32 additional evaluable subjects. It will evaluate DPX-Survivac and low dose cyclophosphamide with, or without, epacadostat in patients with advanced recurrent ovarian cancer. In accordance with regulatory guidelines for combination trials, the goal of this portion of the program is to evaluate the clinical contribution of each investigational drug in the combination regimen.

“We were encouraged by the topline data we shared last December from the first dosing cohort of our trial, especially in this hard-to-treat population of ovarian cancer patients,” said Frederic Ors, Chief Executive Officer at Immunovaccine. “We believe that these results further support the hypothesis that the unique mechanism of action underscoring our T cell activation technology can trigger tumor regressions, even in patients who typically don’t respond well to current monotherapies. We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Incyte, and build on the initial demonstration of this combination in ovarian cancer.”

The Phase 2 arm of the study will be conducted under an amendment to the existing collaboration, in which Immunovaccine and Incyte are co-funding the trial.
