NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/13 --
Taglich Brothers, Inc. announces it initiated coverage of CEL-SCI Corporation.
CEL-SCI Corporation (NYSE MKT:CVM), headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, is a development stage biopharmaceutical company focused on unique immunotherapies that address unmet needs in significant patient populations.
In recent years, the company's R&D has centered on immunotherapy for head and neck cancer, which now absorbs practically all of its R&D spending. Product development includes work on LEAPS (Ligand Epitope Antigen Presentation System) technology treatments for a range of influenzas and a vaccine against rheumatoid arthritis.
The company's lead drug candidate, Multikine®, is a synthesized combination, non-specific immunotherapy currently being evaluated in a phase III study as neoadjuvant therapy for advanced primary (untreated) head and neck cancer.
Multikine is under study in a 48-center, 800+ subject phase III clinical trial that aims to demonstrate that it can, in combination with follow-on surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, reduce mortality in advanced head and neck cancer cases by 10%. The therapy aims to reduce mortality by eradicating micro-metastases, microscopic tumors that survive the therapy, are difficult to detect, and are arguably the underlying cause of disease recurrence.
Multikine has orphan drug status in the US.
