  • Entered into a collaboration with Leidos to equip ONCOS viruses with genetic elements encoding for small peptides with checkpoint inhibitor functionality
  • Entered into an option agreement with IOVaxis Therapeutics for a TG mutant RAS vaccine license agreement in Greater China and Singapore

  • Appointed Dr Victor Levitsky, MD, PhD as CSO

 

Øystein Soug, CEO commented: "Targovax had a highly productive second quarter this year. Most importantly, we reported 12-month immune and efficacy data for ONCOS-102 in mesothelioma, our lead indication, in combination with standard of care chemotherapy (SoC). Based on the promising findings so far, we have started preparations for a subsequent randomized phase II trial where we will add a checkpoint inhibitor to the ONCOS-102 and chemotherapy combination. We are very pleased to have secured a clinical collaboration agreement with Merck for this trial, who will provide Keytruda® and valuable scientific and clinical support for the trial. Additionally, three new innovative collaborations, of which two of them were RAS collaborations, were signed during the quarter, indicating a high interest in Targovax."
