OncoSec Secures License for Electroporation Intellectual Property from University of South Florida
Date:9/11/2012

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OncoSec Medical Inc. (OTCBB: ONCS), a company developing its advanced-stage ImmunoPulse and NeoPulse therapies to treat solid tumor cancers, announced it has secured an exclusive license for specific patented technology from the University of South Florida Research Foundation (USFRF) relating to the delivery of gene-based therapeutics via intratumoral and intramuscular electroporation. This patent is directly related to the ongoing Phase II trials for metastatic melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma using the company's ImmunoPulse therapy, and extends patent protection for the ImmunoPulse technology to the year 2024. Financial terms of this agreement were not disclosed.

OncoSec's proprietary gene and drug delivery platform, the OncoSec Medical System (OMS) electroporation device, is currently being used to develop the company's ImmunoPulse and NeoPulse therapies. This platform encompasses patents, technology and other intellectual property for intratumoral methods for delivering drugs and gene-based treatments in humans.

ImmunoPulse involves the application of a brief electric field to the surface of the skin. This temporarily opens pores in the cell membrane, allowing anti-cancer agent DNA IL-12, to be absorbed more efficiently. DNA IL-12, which normally has difficulty penetrating the tumor cell membrane to get inside these cells, has been shown to significantly stimulate the immune system's T-cells to fight the cancer. The new license from USFRF complements OncoSec's seminal patents, particularly for the protection of the methods involved in the ImmunoPulse treatment, and specifically for the use of DNA IL-12.

"Our licensing agreement with the USFRF significantly strengthens OncoSec's intellectual property rights in the area of gene and d
