NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 4th, 2014 / EquitiesIQ, a leading informational research provider, has provided an update to its coverage of Advaxis, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADXS). Advaxis is an emerging biopharmaceutical company developing proprietary Lm-LLO immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer.

On July 22nd, Advaxis announced that it had entered into a clinical trial collaboration with MedImmune, the biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca. The Phase I/II study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of MedImmune's investigational anti-PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitor, MEDI4736, in combination with Advaxis' lead cancer immunotherapy vaccine, ADXS-HPV, as a treatment for patients with advanced, recurrent, or refractory human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cervical cancer and HPV-associated head and neck cancer.

MEDI4736 is designed to counter the tumour's immune-evading tactics by blocking a signal that helps tumours avoid detection, while ADXS-HPV enhances the ability of immune cells to combat the tumour. Preclinical evidence suggests that the combination of ADXS-HPV with a checkpoint inhibitor, such as MEDI4736, could enhance overall anti-tumour response.

Under the terms of the deal, MedImmune has a non-exclusive relationship with respect to HPV-driven tumour types. MedImmune has first right of negotiation for future development of combinations involving MEDI4736 and ADXS-HPV.
