Northwest Biotherapeutics (NWBO) (“NW Bio”), a U.S. biotechnology company developing DCVax® personalized immune therapies for solid tumor cancers, recently joined the University Medical Center (UMC) of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany in announcing a Phase II clinical trial program combining DCVax®-L and Pembrolizumab (Keytruda®) for colorectal cancer with liver metastases.
The trial will be conducted as an investigator-initiated trial led by the University of Mainz, thereby substantially reducing the costs involved. NW Bio will provide the DCVax-L products and MSD Sharp & Dohme GmbH will provide the Pembrolizumab. (MSD Sharp & Dohme is the operating name used by U.S.-based Merck & Co., Inc. outside the U.S. and Canada.) All of the parties contributed to and approved the novel trial design.
This trial will combine a broad spectrum personalized vaccine (DCVax®-L) with a highly targeted checkpoint inhibitor drug (Pembrolizumab). In contrast, most combination trials to date have combined two specifically targeted agents, with no broad spectrum agent included.
