ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd.

ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd. is a Los Angeles-based clinical-stage company that is developing immune-based therapies for the treatment of brain and other cancers. The company has concluded a Phase 2 trial of its lead product candidate, ICT-107, a dendritic cell-based immunotherapy targeting multiple tumor-associated antigens on glioblastoma stem cells. ImmunoCellular's pipeline also includes ICT-121, a dendritic cell immunotherapy targeting the CD133 antigen on stem cells in recurrent glioblastoma; ICT-140, a dendritic cell immunotherapy targeting antigens on ovarian cancer stem cells; and the Stem-to-T-cell research program, which engineers the patient's hematopoietic stem cells to generate antigen-specific cancer-killing T-cells.

Expert Comments:

Jason McCarthy, Maxim Group (7/2/15)
"In the glioblastoma space is Immunocellular Therapeutics Ltd. whose dendritic cell vaccine, ICT-107, is currently in the planning stages of a pivotal Phase 3 study. The trial could begin in late Q3/15, and interim looks at the data are expected."

"ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd. is a very intriguing name. . .the company has undergone a couple of management changes. . .ImmunoCellular has been very thorough in the types of questions it asked when designing the Phase 2 study of its therapeutic glioblastoma vaccine, ICT-107. . .although the overall primary endpoint data didn't pan out when released in December 2013, the questions that were asked gave the company a pretty clear path forward in showing efficacy for the drug. . .when the data were later analyzed, they showed that the HLA (human leukocyte antigens) status of the patient was going to have a major impact on whether the drug worked or not. . .in patients who were HLA-A2, we saw an encouraging survival benefit with ICT-107 and a path forward. . ." read more >

"ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd. is completing a special protocol assessment (SPA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the ICT-107 Phase 3 trial in glioblastoma multiforme. . .plans for the clinical trial are being finalized, with an expected start in late Q3Q4/15. . .we see the SPA, the single trial and the interim looks as positives for the trial."

Jerry Isaacson, LifeSci Capital (4/2/15)
"Early Phase 1 results for ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd.'s ICT-107 were promising and in an open-label Phase 1 trial, 16 patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM) experienced a median progression-free survival of 16.9 months and a median overall survival of 38.4 months. . .the company intends to move forward with plans to initiate a Phase 3 trial based on the results of its Phase 2 trial. ImmunoCellular is also conducting a Phase 1 study with ICT-121 in patients with recurrent GBM."

Joseph Pantginis, ROTH Capital Partners (3/13/15)
"ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd. announced FY/14 results posting EPS of $0.16. . .the company had $23.2M cash at the end of the year with current pro forma cash of $37.8M following an underwritten public offering in February 2015. We believe this year represents a turning point for ImmunoCelluar with the expected Phase 3 study start with ICT-107 in newly diagnosed glioblastoma patients, so we are reiterating our Buy rating."

Jason Kolbert, Maxim Group (3/10/15)
"Earlier this year, ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd.'s ICT-107 was designated as an Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product by the EU Committee for Advanced Therapies, which should provide access in Phase 3 to valuable services and incentives offered by the EMEA should the company conduct the Phase 3 program in the EU. We believe that ICT-107 is a viable therapy for glioblastoma and that a pivotal trial in the U.S. is the next step."
