OncoSec Medical Incorporated (NASDAQ: ONCS), a company developing DNA-based intratumoral cancer immunotherapies, today presented new clinical data from a Phase II Investigator Sponsored Trial led by the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). The data was presented today at an oral poster presentation (#466) by Dr. Alain Algazi at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer ("SITC") Annual Meeting in National Harbor, MD.

This single-arm, open-label trial assessed the combination of OncoSec's investigational intratumoral therapy, ImmunoPulse® IL-12, and Merck's KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) in patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma. A predictive biomarker was used to enroll patients that have a low likelihood of response to an anti-PD1 agent alone, and the purpose of the trial is to assess whether the addition of ImmunoPulse® IL-12 can increase response rates in these patients.

The full-text abstract is available and can be viewed on SITC's website at www.sitcancer.org. The poster presentation and handout showing the data of the 40% overall response rate (ORR) in patients predicted not to respond to pembrolizumab are available in the Publications section of OncoSec's website.
