"OncoQR ML, a company developing Next Generation Checkpoint Control Cancer Immunotherapies, today announced that in a preclinical trial in a highly relevant non-human primate (NHP) model its pancreatic cancer vaccine TYG100 was able to induce a strong and clinically relevant immune response. This immune response occurred in all treated individuals within just 2 weeks after a single vaccination. No side-effects were observed.

The trial also showed that concomitant standard chemotherapy (Gemcitabine) does not impair the immune response in a relevant way. This finding shows that treatment with TYG100 can be initiated in parallel to chemotherapy. Since pancreatic cancer is an extremely aggressive disease where the average time from diagnosis to death is measured in months, not years, an immunotherapy that can be initiated together with, not after, chemotherapy, and that elicits the desired immune response very fast, would fundamentally improve the treatment of pancreatic cancer patients."
