OncoSec Medical Incorporated is a biopharmaceutical company developing its investigational immunotherapy, TAVO, for the treatment of cancer. OncoSec Medical's core technology is designed to enhance the local delivery and uptake of DNA IL-12 and other DNA-based immune-targeting agents. In clinical trials to date, we have not observed significant safety issues of concern. Further, we have observed preliminary evidence of anti-tumor activity to suggest the potential of TAVO in the treatment of various skin cancers, as well as the potential to initiate a systemic immune response without the systemic toxicities associated with other treatments. OncoSec's lead program evaluating TAVO for the treatment of metastatic melanoma is currently in Phase 2 development, and is being conducted in collaboration with several prominent academic medical centers. As the company continues to evaluate TAVO in its current indications, it is also focused on identifying and developing new immune-targeting agents, investigating additional tumor indications, and evaluating combination-based immunotherapy approaches.
