DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Argos Therapeutics Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of fully personalized immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases using its Arcelis™ technology platform, today announced that on November 4, 2013, the Company increased the size of its previously announced Series E financing by $17.5 million, bringing the total amount of committed funds from $42.5 million to $60 million.
