BriaCell Therapeutics (OTCQB: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), a biotechnology company focused on immuno-oncology, recently reported the impending clinical use of a novel frozen formulation of the company’s lead cancer drug candidate, Bria-IMT. The new, easy-to-use formulation can be transported more simply to distant locations. An article discussing the company reads, “The company’s frozen formulation allows for the storage of cryopreserved, ready-to-inject Bria-IMT for cold-chain overnight transport to clinical sites where it will be thawed prior to injection in patients. This unique formulation of Bria-IMT has also shown improved potency compared to the old formulation in vitro. Long term, this novel, frozen formulation is expected to carry reduced per-dose costs compared to the old formulation, the company stated in a news release (http://nnw.fm/GS6f9). Bria-IMT activates the immune system to destroy cancer cells in a way that’s believed to be both unique and more effective than other, similar approaches. The frozen formulation will also be applicable to Bria-OTS, BriaCell’s personalized off-the-shelf immunotherapy, which is being developed.”
