MEDIA INVITED: Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc., Talks Vital Vaccine Technology Advancement at Biotech Showcase 2016
Date:1/12/2016

HERSHEY, Pa. and ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Following one of the largest upfront payments for rights to an early-stage allergy vaccine technology, Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc. (ITI) will share the projections for their potentially game-changing DNA vaccine platform with investors at the Biotech Showcase™ 2016 on Wednesday.

The talk will focus on the LAMP-vax™ platform, a unique vaccine technology that relies on the body's own natural biochemistry to increase vaccine effectiveness. Late last year, the Japanese firm, Astellas Pharma purchased the rights to apply LAMP-vax to human allergy worldwide for $300M. Astellas is working to produce a pipeline of allergy therapies, including a LAMP-vax based vaccine for peanut allergy, and ITI is now taking aim at cancer immunology. On Wednesday, ITI's Chief Financial Officer, Eric Winzer, will share LAMP-vax development plans and discuss anticipated implications on the future healthcare landscape.Who:Eric Winzer, CFO, Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc.

About LAMP-vax platform

The LAMP-vax platform is a breakthrough technology that has the potential to fundamentally improve the use of vaccines across a wide variety of diseases.  LAMP-vax is a next-generation DNA vaccine that stimulates an immune response against a particular protein by injecting the DNA encoding the protein rather than the protein itself.  However, unlike older, conventional DNA vaccines, LAMP-vax includes the DNA sequence encoding Lysosomal Associated Membrane Protein (LAMP).  This allows DNA vaccines developed, based on the LAMP-vax platform, to utilize the body's natural biochemistry to develop a more complete immune response compared to conventional DNA vaccines.  Unlike conventional DNA vaccines that primarily elicit a cytotoxic T cell immune response, vaccines developed using LAMP-vax initiate a more complete immune response, including antibody production, cytokine release and critical immunological memory.  The ability to activate a complete immune response gives LAMP-vax technology potential across a number of diseases, including cancer immunotherapy, allergy and infectious diseases.
