Expert Comments:

"I understand Inovio Pharmaceuticals Inc. is using active DNA vaccines. Inovio and OncoSec Medical are both seemingly following a similar theme, and the growing acceptance and excitement around immunotherapies in general may help them both. Inovio has had a number of successes clinically and marquee collaborations that have led to its market cap being what it is today. Thus, it has a market cap of about $590M today, versus OncoSec's $57M." read more >
