Advaxis, Inc.


is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing the next

generation of cancer immunotherapies. Advaxis's immunotherapies are

based on a novel platform technology using live, attenuated bacteria

to stimulate the immune system to selectively target cancer cells

while reducing tumor defenses.


Advaxis's lead immunotherapy for the treatment of HPV-associated

cancers, has demonstrated improved survival and objective tumor

responses in a Phase 2 trial in 110 patients with recurrent cervical

cancer. Advaxis is now planning the registrational program for

ADXS-HPV. ADXS-HPV is also being evaluated in other HPV-associated

cancers including a Phase 2 in advanced cervical cancer, a Phase 1/2

in head and neck cancer, and a Phase 1/2 in anal cancer. ADXS-HPV has

orphan drug status for both anal and head and neck cancers. As part

of its global commercialization strategy to enter into regional

licensing deals with other market dominant biopharmaceutical

companies in territories where there is a high prevalence of

HPV-associated cancers, Advaxis has granted exclusive licenses for

the development and commercialization of ADXS-HPV in Asia and India.

(such as breast, gastric, esophageal, and other cancers in humans and

for osteosarcoma in canines). Advaxis's lead animal-health

immunotherapy, ADXS-cHER2, has demonstrated encouraging survival data

in a Phase 1 trial in canine osteosarcoma. These data provide the

rationale to advance this same immunotherapy into a Phase 1 clinical

trial in women with HER2-positive breast cancer. The Company is

preparing an IND submission for ADXS-cHER2 in breast cancer in 2014.
