It also exemplifies Immunicum’s commitment to continue to invest in its academicpartnerships,” said Alex Karlsson-Parra, Chief ScientificOfficer at Immunicum.
Immunicum has an ongoing clinical collaboration with UMCG for the ALISON study, a single-center, open-label Phase I study evaluating safety and efficacy of DCP-001 in High-Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer (HGSOC) patients. Immunicum and UMCG had previously completed a preclinical research study demonstrating the stimulation of immune responses against ovarian cancer cells by DCP-001. The data from this study will be presented at the upcoming European Society for Gynaecological Oncology conference, held October 23-25.
