Cancer Immunotherapy Company to Discuss Clinical Translation of PV-001 Dengue/Dendritic Cell Treatment

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PrimeVax Immuno-Oncology, Inc. announced today its CEO, Tony

Chen, will be presenting at the Annual Biocom Global Life Science Partnering Conference.  The presentation will take place on March 2, at 11:15 AM, at the Torrey Pines Lodge, in San Diego. 

"We are thankful to the organizers at Biocom who have chosen our company, amongst numerous others, to present at this international symposium of biotechnology companies, investors, and clinical researchers," said Mr. Chen. "In contrast to conferences in previous years, there is an increase in the number of cancer immunotherapy companies presenting. This trend reflects the excitement we observe in the industry where new methods are being tried to fight cancer."

PrimeVax takes a unique approach to treating cancer by combining virus-induced immune stimulation and dendritic cell therapy.  A description of the PrimeVax approach was recently published in the peer-reviewed literature by the company management1.

"With the clinical implementation of various immunotherapeutic strategies, it is becoming more and more apparent that we need to activate multiple arms of the immune system at the same time," said Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD, Scientific Co-Founder of PrimeVax and Chair of Neurosciences and Neurotherapeutics at the John Wayne Cancer Institute and Pacific Neuroscience Institute. "We are very excited about the progress that Mr. Chen has made in advancing this technology, and I look forward to helping patients suffering from deadly cancers such as melanoma and glioblastoma."
