SAN DIEGO, Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- OncoSec Medical Incorporated (OTCBB: ONCS), which is developing its advanced-stage OMS ElectroOncology therapies for the treatment of solid tumor cancers, announced today the submission of its Device Master File (DMF) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its patented OncoSec Medical System (OMS) which consists of a generator and hand-held applicator. The Company has been developing the OncoSec Medical System as its lead medical device for delivering DNA based cytokines and chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of solid tumor cancers.

The DMF, which includes technical, manufacturing, clinical and non-clinical information about the OncoSec Medical System, marks an important milestone for the Company.  This regulatory filing facilitates FDA review of the complete system when any investigational clinical study application references its use.

"This DMF submission brings the OncoSec Medical System another step closer to becoming the treatment of choice for different types of solid tumor cancers," stated Punit Dhillon, President and Chief Executive Officer of OncoSec. "In a very short period of time, OncoSec has moved aggressively with its clinical and regulatory strategy, with the DMF being one important piece of that strategy. Moving forward, we will continue to demonstrate the value of our treatment approaches as our clinical studies begin."

OncoSec plans to initiate three Phase II clinical trials under physician sponsored INDs using the OncoSec Medical System to deliver DNA IL-12: OMS-I100 for the treatment of melanoma; OMS-I120 for the treatment of Merkel cell carcinoma; and OMS-I130 for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
