Pharmexa A/S (DK) - Long lasting immune response and survival to,RAS vaccine

Summary: Follow-up RAS data presented at ASCO

HORSOLM, Denmark, June 4, 2007-Professor Trond Buanes today gave a presentation titled "RAS peptide vaccination in resected pancreatic cancer patients - persistence of anti tumour response and long term survival" at ASCO's (American Society of Clinical Oncology) annual cancer meeting.

A follow-up study of 23 resected pancreatic cancer patients immunized in the period from 1995 to 1998 with two different peptide vaccines targeting the RAS mutation found in most instances of pancreatic cancer indicates that a long lasting immune response is possible following immunization with a peptide vaccine. Five patients that showed an immune response to the vaccine were still alive in 2006, i.e. up to 10 years after the operation. Further analysis showed that the immune system in three of these patients still remembered the RAS vaccination.

The RAS vaccines are owned by Pharmexa. In addition, Pharmexa owns a number of other proprietary cancer peptide vaccines, including GV1001 which is in phase III clinical trials.
