NovAccess Global Files Patent with Cedars-Sinai to Advance its Brain Cancer Fighting Vaccine Platform

Published

CLEVELAND, OH / ACCESSWIRE / May 21, 2024 / NovAccess Global Inc. (OTCQB:XSNX), a pioneering biomedical company developing innovative immunotherapies for brain tumor patients, today announced it has submitted a provisional patent for new intellectual property developed at Cedars-Sinai to advance the Company's immunotherapy platform. The patent pertains to the use of a specific protein, known as IDH1, which helps facilitate metabolism in cells in order to more effectively fight aggressive brain and other cancer cells. The Company plans to use this patent to predict a patient's likely response to vaccine/immunotherapy during treatment for highly malignant brain tumors, such glioblastoma.

IDH1 is commonly mutated in brain and other tumors. Groundbreaking research published by Dr. Chris Wheeler, President and lead scientist of NovAccess Global subsidiary StemVax, LLC, has shown that IDH1 discerns long-term from short-term survivors after vaccine therapy in patients with brain tumors such as glioblastoma. Use of IDH1 as such a predictor will help deliver TLR-AD1 to patients most likely to benefit from it and thereby improve treatment outcomes.

With this patent filing, NovAccess Global effectively doubles its patent portfolio, and intends to support the development of IDH1 as a predictor of success for TRL-AD1, its immunotherapy for malignant brain tumors that in 2022 received Orphan Drug designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Company will now coordinate with the FDA for a pre-investigational new drug meeting to determine how best to co-develop IDH1 and TLR-AD1.

"We have exclusive rights to both technologies and anticipate that IDH1 will complement NovAccess' TLR-AD1 vaccine approach by allowing selection of the most suitable patients for treatment and thereby maximizing the treatment's benefits to them. This combination represents a potentially significant breakthrough toward achieving improved outcomes and enhanced life expectancy for those suffering from brain cancer, which may bring relief to many of the approximately 10,000 people per year in America alone dying from this condition," said NovAccess Global's Chief Executive Officer Dr. Dwain K. Irvin.
