On May 2, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Company consolidated the roles of Chief Executive Officer and President, with Daniel J. O’Connor to serve as both. Accordingly, Punit Dhillon will no longer serve as President of the Company, but will remain as a member of the Board of Directors. The Company and Mr. Dhillon have entered into a separation agreement that triggers the compensation provisions pursuant to his Amended and Restated Executive Employment Agreement, dated November 7, 2017. (See Exhibit 10.4, Confidential Separation Agreement, dated May 2, 2018, by and between OncoSec Medical Incorporated and Punit S. Dhillon herein.)

 

On May 8, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the Clinical Trial Collaboration and Supply Agreement with Merck (known as MSD outside the United States and Canada). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company and Merck will evaluate the combination of the Company’s ImmunoPulse® IL-12 with Merck’s anti-PD-1 therapy KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) in a Phase 2 clinical trial. Under the Agreement, the Company will sponsor and fund the Phase 2 study of ImmunoPulse® IL-12 in combination with KEYTRUDA® in patients to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination in patients with inoperable locally advanced or metastatic triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) who have previously failed at least one systemic chemotherapy or immunotherapy. The study will be a Phase 2, Simon 2-stage minimax design, non-comparative, open-label, single-arm, multicenter study. The study is planned to enroll approximately 25 subjects (15 subjects in Stage 1 and, if appropriate, another 10 subjects in Stage 2) and the trial is expected to commence in mid-2018.
