VIENNA, Va., July 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CEL-SCI Corporation (NYSE Amex: CVM), a late stage cancer immunotherapy company, announced today that Dr. Eyal Talor, CEL-SCI's Senior Vice President of Research and Manufacturing, has been invited to present to the NIH, NCI's Clinical Center and the Center for Human Immunology, NERD (New Research and Development) Seminar Series, which will take place on Friday July 10, 2009 at the NIH's Clinical Center located at the main NIH campus, on 9000 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD. The title of Dr. Talor's presentation is: "Multikine: Cancer Immunotherapy; how to make immunotherapy for cancer work".
In the presentation, Dr. Talor will discuss Multikine's immunotherapy clinical program for cancer, the unique mechanism of action of Multikine (published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology) and the way Multikine imparts the patient's own immune response with the ability to mount a robust anti-tumor immune response against his/her tumor. Dr. Talor will also discuss the clinical findings from the different Multikine Phase II clinical trials which highlight the advantages that Multikine treatment provides for early disease management in newly diagnosed (treatment naive) patients with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck. Early intervention in this disease is seen by many clinicians and researchers in the field as a key to improving disease outcome in these patients.
Dr. Talor will also discuss the objectives of the collaborative study between the NIH, NCI under a current Material Transfer Agreement. This work is aimed at elucidating the tumor microenvironment changes, at the molecular level, brought about by Multikine treatment of head and neck cancer patients. The CEL-SCI / NIH collaborative study will use samples collected from patients with advanced primary Head and Neck cancer (Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma) during the impending Multikine Pivotal Global Phase III trial and these samples will be tested by the NIH, NCI using Genomic Microarray technology, developed at the NIH, NCI laboratories.
