About Allovectin-7(R)

Allovectin-7(R) is a plasmid/lipid complex containing the DNA sequences encoding HLA-B7 and Beta 2 microglobulin, which together form a Class I Major Histocompatibility Complex, or MHC-I antigen. Injection of Allovectin-7(R) directly into tumors is designed to stimulate an immune response against both local and distant metastatic tumors. Vical conducted a large Phase 2 trial evaluating Allovectin-7(R) immunotherapeutic as a single agent for patients with Stage III or IV metastatic melanoma. Based on advice from clinical experts and detailed guidance received from the FDA in an End-of-Phase 2 meeting, Vical designed the current Phase 3 trial.

Allovectin-7(R) has been granted orphan drug designation for the treatment of invasive and metastatic melanoma by the FDA's Office of Orphan Products Development. Orphan drug designation provides U.S. marketing exclusivity for seven years if marketing approval is received from the FDA, in addition to certain tax benefits for qualifying expenses.

Patients with metastatic melanoma often are treated off-label with drugs such as temozo
