JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/-- TapImmune, Inc. (NASDAQ: TPIV), a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company specializing in the development of innovative peptide and gene-based immunotherapeutics and vaccines for the treatment of cancer and metastatic disease today announced the opening of its Phase 2 company-sponsored ovarian cancer study in platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer patients.

"The opening of this study represents the fulfillment of a major 2016 milestone," said Dr. John Bonfiglio, President and COO of TapImmune. "We now have three clinical studies utilizing TPIV 200 with approvals to enroll patients. A fourth study in triple-negative breast cancer sponsored by the Mayo clinic with a $13.3M grant from the Department of Defense is scheduled to begin shortly. We believe the depth of these clinical programs will give us an excellent understanding of how this exciting T-cell therapy can potentially be used in the treatment of both triple-negative breast and ovarian cancers."
