MedGenome to Present on OncoPept - a Point Solution in Cancer Immunotherapy at the Novel Immunotherapeutics Summit 2016

SAN FRANCISCO, January 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Our Analysis Reveals That Tongue and Buccal Cancers Harbor a set of Dual-purpose Tumor Neo-antigens That can be Used as Cancer Vaccines in a Therapeutic Setting, and as Biomarkers of Response to Select Patients for Cancer Immunotherapy

MedGenome will present results from their Head & Neck cancer study in which published genomics data from over 400 Head & Neck cancer samples have been analyzed to identify potential vaccine candidates using MedGenome's proprietary OncoPept platform at the Novel Immunotherapeutics Summit 2016, on January 25-26, 2016 at San Diego, CA .


The analysis shows that differential gene expression between tongue and buccal cancers produce both unique and shared vaccine candidates that can be used in combination therapies. Several studies have shown that the efficacy and durability of response to the checkpoint control inhibitors, which complement the traditional approach of targeting driver genes in cancer, are significantly enhanced by combining vaccine candidates derived from neo-antigens expressed by the tumor cells.

MedGenome's OncoPept is an integrated platform that uses exome sequencing, RNA sequencing and computational methods to characterize tumor neo-antigens, analyze T-cell neo-epitopes and reveal gene expression signatures. The platform has various pre-clinical and clinical research applications.
