"The ISO certification is a significant accomplishment and an important milestone for OncoSec. Certification affirms that our QMS meets the highest standards and strengthens OncoSec's commitment to product quality and development," said Punit Dhillon, President and CEO. "With this certification in place, OncoSec is now one major step closer to obtaining the CE Marking necessary for commercialization in Europe."

Companies receiving the ISO 13485 certification must demonstrate an ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements. Achievement of ISO certification offers customers and suppliers an additional level of confidence in the quality and reliability of OncoSec devices, as well as the company's commitment to continuous improvement. OncoSec's review was performed by SGS, a world leader among notified bodies in inspection, verification, testing, and certification.

OncoSec's electroporation device, the OncoSec Medical System (OMS), is currently being used in three on-going clinical trials for the treatment of metastatic melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. In addition, the OMS has been used in Europe in Phase IV clinical trials for the treatment of head and neck cancer and cutaneous and subcutaneous skin cancers.

About OncoSec Medical Inc.

OncoSec Medical Incorporated is a biopharmaceutical company developing its advanced-stage OMS ElectroOncology therapies to treat solid tumor cancers and metastatic disease. OMS ElectroOncology therapies address an unmet medical need and represent a potential solution, for less invasive and less expensive therapies that are able to minimize detrimental effects resulting from currently available cancer treatments such as surgery, systemic chemotherapy or immunotherapy and other treatment alternatives.  OncoSec's core technology is based upon its proprietary use of an electroporation platform, the OncoSec Medical System (OMS), to dramatically enhance the delivery and uptake of a locally delivered DNA-based immuno-cytokine (OMS ElectroImmunotherapy) or chemotherapeutic agents (OMS ElectroChemotherapy). Treatment of various solid cancers using these powerful and targeted anti-cancer agents has demonstrated selective destruction of cancerous cells while sparing healthy normal tissues during early and late stage clinical trials. OncoSec's clinical programs include three Phase II clinical trials for OMS ElectroImmunotherapy targeting lethal skin cancers. More information is available at www.oncosec.com.
