IMV Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering a novel class of cancer immunotherapies and vaccines against infectious diseases, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020 and provided an update on its clinical and operational progress.
“Despite the current pandemic, we have continued to validate our platform and advance our clinical pipeline targeting various cancers and other serious diseases, including COVID-19,” said Frederic Ors, Chief Executive Officer at IMV. “Today, we are especially pleased to announce that SPiReL, a Phase 2 study of a DPX-Survivac combination regimen in patients with r/r DLBCL, has met its primary efficacy endpoint. This represents a significant milestone for DPX-Survivac, which has so far demonstrated the ability to shrink both solid and hematological tumors with long-lasting clinical responses and a differentiated safety profile. We believe these results in r/r DLBCL, taken together with emerging data from our DeCidE1 study in advanced ovarian cancer, support our plan to accelerate development in both of these indications.”
Mr. Ors continued, “Our recent financing fortifies our corporate position, with cash to fund operations for more than 12 months and several milestones anticipated across our portfolio in the interim. We look forward to presenting translational and updated clinical response data from DeCidE1 at the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program, and to further updates from each of our Phase 2 studies of DPX-Survivac later this year. Additionally, we are preparing to advance a DPX-based vaccine candidate for COVID-19, which is on track to enter into clinical trials later this summer.”
