On behalf of the OncoSec team, we’re thrilled to announce the first patient enrolled in the Phase II Investigator Sponsored Trial led by the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to assess the safety and efficacy of the combination of our investigational therapy, ImmunoPulse™ IL-12, and Merck’s approved anti-PD-1 agent, KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab), in patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma.

Reports Spotlight Use of OMS ElectroImmunotherapy in Clinical Trial for Melanoma 

SAN DIEGO, CA – July 23, 2012 – OncoSec Medical Inc. (OTCBB: ONCS), a company developing its advanced-stage OMS ElectroOncology therapies to treat solid tumor cancers, was spotlighted on Oakland television station KTVU-TV on July 20 and in the San Francisco Chronicle on July 18.

The KTVU segment aired during “Channel 2 News at 5.” KTVU health and science editor, John Fowler, provided a report on the clinical trial for melanoma currently underway at the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF), under the direction of principal investigator Dr. Adil Daud and in collaboration with OncoSec Medical. Dr. Daud, a patient enrolled in the clinical trial and Punit Dhillon, President and CEO of OncoSec, comment on the OMS ElectroImmunotherapy.  The segment notes that OncoSec’s therapy is unique because although the electroporation treatment is local, it has shown to have an anti-cancer effect throughout the entire body.

The San Francisco Chronicle article, “Melanoma treatment shows promise at UCSF,” describes the features of the OMS ElectroImmunotherapy treatment and highlights clinical results to date, including the positive response of one of the patients enrolled in the clinical trial.
