(Before It's News)

Immunotherapy group TapImmune Inc (OTCMKTS:TPIV) plans to apply for a phase II trial of a new formulation of its HER2neu vaccine for breast cancer early next year.

The vaccine (TPIV 110) consists of four proprietary class II antigens and one proprietary class I antigen.

In the phase I trial, 90% patients developed a ‘robust- T-cell response’ to the class II antigens, while the class I antigen may be up to four time as more effective at killing breast cancer cells than those tested previously, research has suggested.

A combination of the antigens may be the best combination for a therapeutic response, added TapImmune.

An application to the US Food and Drug Admission for a clinical trial of the vaccine to include the new type 1 antigen peptide is expected around the end of the year.

“HER2neu is a well-known and important target in breast cancer treatments,” said Dr. John Bonfiglio, TapImmune’s chief executive.

“Our strategy is to highly leverage our HER2neu platform technology in treating this disease.”
