CEL-SCI is a late-stage cancer immunotherapy company. CEL-SCI believes that boosting a patient's immune system while it is still intact should provide the greatest possible impact on survival. Therefore, in its Phase III study in advanced primary head and neck cancer patients CEL-SCI treated patients who are newly diagnosed with the investigational product Multikine* first, BEFORE they received surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy. This approach is unique. Most other cancer immunotherapies are administered only after conventional therapies have been tried and/or failed. Multikine (Leukocyte Interleukin, Injection), has received Orphan Drug designation from the FDA for neoadjuvant therapy in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (cancer) of the head and neck.
CEL-SCI believes that this Phase III study is the largest Phase III study in the world for the treatment of head and neck cancer. Per the study's protocol, newly diagnosed patients with advanced primary squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck were treated with the Multikine treatment regimen for 3 weeks prior to receiving the Standard of Care (SOC), which involves surgery, radiation or concurrent radiochemotherapy. Multikine is designed to help the immune system "see" the tumor at a time when the immune system is still relatively intact and thereby thought to better be able to mount an attack on the tumor.

The aim of treatment with Multikine is to boost the body's immune system prior to SOC.

Topline results: The Phase III study in newly diagnosed advanced primary head and neck cancer with our Multikine immunotherapy produced a statistically significant 5-year survival benefit in patients receiving surgery plus radiotherapy. These patients represent about 40% of the study population and approximately 210,000 patients annually worldwide. The 5-year overall survival (OS) benefit in this study treatment arm was robust and durable, with no safety issues, something not commonly seen with cancer drugs. In fact, the survival benefit increased over time and at 5-years the overall survival benefit reached an absolute 14.1% advantage for the Multikine treated arm over control (n=380, total study patients treated with surgery plus radiation) Multikine arm 62.7% control arm 48.6%, survival.
The Company's LEAPS technology is being developed for rheumatoid arthritis and as a potential treatment of COVID-19 in hospitalized and at-high-risk patients.
