NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Advaxis, Inc., (OTCBB: ADXS), the live, attenuated Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria) immunotherapy company, will host a science update investor conference call on Thursday, December 16, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
The science update will discuss new findings which demonstrate previously undescribed capabilities of Advaxis’ immunotherapy that suppress the immune-protection tumors recruit to defeat immune attacks. These findings were presented at an American Association of Cancer Research meeting last week.
Advaxis has reported in four (4) scientific papers the ability to suppress T-regulatory cells that neutralize immune attacks on tumors. The Company’s new data will show a far broader effect than any disclosed to date. Further research and development of these mechanisms of action are the focus of Advaxis’ Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health granted October 29, 2010.
"The ability of Advaxis’ Listeria platform technology to remove tumor immuno-protection and stimulate innate and adaptive immunity differentiates it from all other immunotherapies; making it, arguably, the most complete immunotherapeutic technology currently in development,” said Advaxis EVP of Science and Operations Dr. John Rothman.
Immediately following the call, there will be a brief question and answer period. All those interested in participating in the call are welcome to RSVP us at [email protected] by 1:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, December 16, 2010. The available bridge lines are limited. Please RSVP as soon as practicable. The call will be recorded. A link to the recoding will be posted on our website www.advaxis.com and our corporate portal on facebook on or before Thursday, December 23, 2010.
