NEW YORK, Oct. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire — NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring BriaCell Therapeutics Corp.

BriaCell’s novel technology is being developed based on the recent positive proof-of-concept clinical findings of phase IIa studies of the company’s lead product candidate, Bria-IMT™, in heavily pretreated advanced breast cancer patients.
The phase IIa study (listed in ClinicalTrials.gov as NCT03066947) showed potent anti-tumor activity of Bria-IMT in certain patients who shared certain HLA types with Bria-IMT. (HLA = Human Leukocyte Antigen typing is used to match patients and donors in transplants.) HLA biomarkers, found on most cells, are recognized by the immune system to determine self versus foreign cells. Importantly, preliminary phase IIa efficacy data in these patients, with the same HLA type as those on Bria-IMT, were similar or superior to those of other approved breast cancer drugs when at a similar clinical-stage of development.
BriaCell is an immuno-oncology focused biotechnology company developing a targeted and safe approach to the management of cancer. Immunotherapy has come to the forefront in the fight against cancer, harnessing the body’s own immune system in recognizing and selectively destroying cancer cells while sparing normal ones. Immunotherapy, in addition to generally being more targeted and less toxic than commonly used types of chemotherapy, is also thought to be a potent approach with the potential to prevent cancer recurrence.
