    ONCS included in Weekly Stock Watch

    OncoSec Medical Inc. (OTC:ONCS): Volume picked up heavily late last week for OncoSec Medical, making this player in the cancer sector one to watch during the coming week, too – especially for those that believe that volume precedes price. With the OncoSec Medical System (OMS), OncoSec may have devised a method of delivery for therapies and drugs into cancerous cells that not only meets the ideals of the lower-costing and less-intrusive treatments that the medical community is searching for, but could also change the face of how cancer-fighting therapies and drugs are delivered – most notably in regards to skin cancer.

    The process behind OMS utilizes one known as electroporation. During this process, electric pulses are applied to open pores in cells that allow them (the cells) to absorb a therapeutic agent and ‘trap’ it inside the cell walls. This action serves two purposes. First, it allows for a better absorption rate – which makes a therapy that much more effective – and, secondly, it does so without harming the surrounding healthy cells. Those are both key take-aways to note when gauging the possibilities of the future, but one should also note that the technology is still in the Phase II stages of development and has a way to go before meeting market.

    OMS has spawned two application paths for which OncoSec is developing; ImmunoPulse and NeoPulse, and investors may be starting to key in on their unique potential, as noted by last week’s volume spurt.
