About MimiVax: MimiVax is a privately held, clinical-stage immuno-oncology company focused on the development and commercialization of immunotherapeutics and targeted therapies for the treatment of cancer. Our proprietary product portfolio is based on technology licensed from Roswell Park Cancer Institute that targets survivin, a cell-survival protein that is present in most cancers and rarely detectable in normal tissue. Our therapies are designed to break immune tolerance and stimulate immune responses to control tumor growth and recurrence.

About SurVaxM: SurVaxM, our lead immunotherapeutic product, has demonstrated safety and tolerability in a Phase I study in people with malignant gliomas (brain tumors). SurVaxM is currently being evaluated in a Phase II clinical trial in adults with newly diagnosed glioblastoma at five cancer centers: Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Mass General and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospitals. Also a Phase I clinical trial in combination with REVLIMID® (lenalidomide) as a maintenance therapy for adults with multiple myeloma (a form of blood cancer) is ongoing at Roswell Park.
