BriaCell Therapeutics (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), a biotechnology company developing targeted, safe treatments for cancer, is advancing the development of its lead product candidate Bria-IMT™, which has demonstrated positive results in three clinical studies to date. An article discussing the company reads, “Bria-IMT™ works by providing breast cancer antigens and a direct stimulation of the cancer fighting T-cells. This way, the therapy strengthens the body’s ability to fight cancer. Bria-IMT™ has achieved proof of concept in clinical trials, and its safety has also been assessed as excellent. Even in heavily pre-treated advanced breast cancer patients, Bria-IMT™ managed to elicit tumor regression. . . . In the combination study, six patients have been treated with Bria-IMT™ and KEYTRUDA®. In all of the patients, the combination was very well tolerated, and the study is ongoing. Additional data about the efficacy of the combination study is expected in the first quarter of 2019, BriaCell announced.”
