Recently Immunovaccine, Inc. announced the launch of its DPX-NEO program to foster and expand its DepoVax-based vaccines for use in immuno-oncology clinical settings.
The program was initiated to develop neoepitopes – molecules that are usually the target of an immune response, but in this case are specifically produced by tumor cells. As a result, they are tumor specific and believed to show great promise in the field of immunotherapy, since scientists can design vaccines specifically targeting these tumor-neoepitopes.
In this Oncology Associates video, learn more about how immunotherapy cancer treatment works and what types of side effects it may cause with oncologist Stephen Lemon MD.
