Significant Milestone Marks the Beginning of FDA-Authorized Breast Cancer Trial
Date:7/14/2009

TAMPA, Fla., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Immunologics, Inc. (QI), a Tampa, Florida company focusing on the research and development of cancer immunotherapies, announces that the first patient in its breast cancer trial has begun to receive its dendritic cell therapy.

QI is currently sponsoring and conducting an FDA-authorized Phase I/II clinical trial testing the safety and efficacy of its immunotherapy on 27 Stage IV breast cancer patients who have failed conventional therapy. According to Mr. Chuck Broes, CEO of QI, "This achievement marks a significant milestone in the life cycle of our company, and we look forward with great hope and commitment as we aspire to a successful trial outcome."

The clinical trials involve the use of dendritic cell therapy using the oncofetal antigen ("OFA"), or iLRP -- immature Laminin Receptor Protein, as a cancer antigen (a protein found on cancer cells that can be targeted by the body's own immune system) found in many tumor cell lines or fetal tissue, but absent on normal, healthy tissue. QI believes that the OFA antigen can serve as a unique, valuable and promising antigen for individualized breast cancer immunotherapy.

Centered in Mobile, AL, QI's clinical trial is designed around the use of QI's proprietary dendritic cell therapy, which employs OFA to recruit the patient's own immune system to target and attack the cancer cells with the intent to improve patient survivability and quality of life. Each patient will receive three monthly injections of the patient's own dendritic cells that have been sensitized to OFA. It is anticipated that once the sensitized cells are injected back into the patient, the patient's T-cells will locate the OFA found on the patient's cancer cells, thereby generating an immune response with the goal of killing the cancer cells and preventing further spread of the disease.
