OncoSec Medical Hosting SITC Key Opinion Leader Webinar on Updated Data from the KEYNOTE-695 Study

SITC KOL Webinar November 12th at 7am ET

PENNINGTON, N.J. and SAN DIEGO, Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- OncoSec Medical Incorporated (NASDAQ: ONCS) will host a conference call and webcast for investors and analysts on Friday, November 12 at 7:00 AM ET featuring key opinion leaders (KOLs) Matteo Carlino, MD, from Westmead and Blacktown Hospitals, Adil Daud, MD, from University of California San Francisco, Pablo Fernandez Peñas MD, PhD, FACD, from The University of Sydney, and Montaser Shaheen, MD, from the University of Arizona Cancer Center. The KOLs will discuss the clinical relevance of the updated KEYNOTE-695 data being presented in a poster at the SITC 2021 Annual Meeting. Specifically, the KEYNOTE-695 clinical trial enrolled metastatic melanoma patients that are refractory to Immune Checkpoint Blockade, non-responders as defined by the Society of Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) recommendations.1

Adil Daud, M.D., a Professor of Medicine at The University of California, San Francisco, Director of the Melanoma Clinical Research, remarked, "TAVO works by optimizing cellular uptake of DNA-based IL-12 in the tumor microenvironment, leading to local, sustained production of IL-12 in the tumor, where it matters. TAVO recruits and primes immune cancer-fighting cells in the tumor leading to systemic immune responses without systemic toxicity, and we look forward to the updated data at SITC 2021 in this highly refractory patient population."

About OncoSec Medical Incorporated
OncoSec Medical Incorporated (the "Company," "OncoSec," "we" or "our") is a biotechnology company focused on developing cytokine-based intratumoral immunotherapies. OncoSec's lead immunotherapy investigational product – TAVO™ (tavokinogene telseplasmid) – is a DNA plasmid encoding interleukin-12 (IL-12), a naturally occurring protein with immune-stimulating functions, that is administered by intratumoral injection and electroporation. The technology is designed to produce a controlled, localized expression of IL-12 in the tumor microenvironment, enabling activation of a systemic tumor-specific immune response to target and attack tumors throughout the body. OncoSec has built a clinical pipeline utilizing TAVO™ in combination with checkpoint inhibitors as a potential treatment for multiple cancer indications, with the goal of addressing a great unmet medical need in oncology: disease resistant to checkpoint inhibitor therapy. Results from clinical studies of In clinical studies, TAVO™, either as monotherapy or in combination with checkpoint inhibitors, has demonstrated induction of a local tumor immune response and a systemic antitumor effect, along with an acceptable safety profile, warranting further development. In addition to TAVO™, OncoSec is identifying and developing new DNA-encoded therapeutic candidates and a visceral lesion applicator, to target deeper visceral lesions, such as liver, lung or pancreatic lesions.
