Leiden, The Netherlands, September 10, 2019 – DCprime, the front-runner in the field of relapse vaccines, today announced the initiation of a research collaboration with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University Medical Center of Groningen (UMCG) lead by Professor Hans Nijman MD PhD. The purpose of the collaboration is to design a novel relapse vaccine approach for ovarian cancer and to prepare for a clinical trial in ovarian cancer patients.
“We see significant therapeutic promise of our relapse vaccine in ovarian cancer and the researchers at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at UMCG are recognized experts in this field. We are extremely fortunate to have their expertise and guidance as we tackle this new indication and begin evaluating our relapse vaccine approach in solid tumors,” commented Jeroen Rovers MD PhD, CMO of DCprime.
DCprime is the front-runner in the field of relapse vaccines, a new class of oncology vaccines administered after or in conjunction with standard of care therapy to delay or prevent disease recurrence. Our lead product is a whole-cell based vaccine addressing blood cancers with a high risk of relapse. We are pursuing similar vaccination approaches for solid tumors. We believe relapse vaccines will improve survival by putting the patient’s immune system back in control. For more information, please visit: https://dcprime.com/
