OncoSec's NeoPulse shows positive Phase IV study results

OncoSec announced positive interim results from a Phase IV trial investigating the use of NeoPulse therapy to treat solid tumors in skin cancer patients at the 6th World Meeting of Interdisciplinary Melanoma/Skin Care Centres & 8th EADO Congress. Data from the trial showed a complete response of greater than 90% in basal cell carcinoma patients and 70% in squamous cell carcinoma patients at six months. The primary goal of this phase IV cutaneous cancer study was to assess the ability of NeoPulse to control growth or recurrence of the cancer six months following treatment, equivalent to surgery as compared to historical controls, with respect to primary (new) tumors and locally recurrent tumors. The treatment was well-tolerated. The most frequent treatment-related adverse events were pain, infection and insomnia; all were transient and manageable.
