About SOV02 clinical trial:
SOV02 is a randomized, open-label, parallel-group, multi-center Phase II clinical trial evaluating the effect of adding DCVAC/OvCa to standard chemotherapy (carboplatin and gemcitabine) in women with first relapse of platinum-sensitive epithelial ovarian cancer.
The SOTIO DCVAC product candidates are active cellular immunotherapy treatments which are produced individually for each patient using the patient’s own dendritic cells (which form part of the immune system) to induce an immune reaction against tumor antigens. SOTIO is developing three product candidates using the DCVAC platform to affect multiple different cancers in various stages of the disease - DCVAC/OvCa for patients with ovarian cancer, DCVAC/PCa for patients with prostate cancer and DCVAC/LuCa for patients with lung cancer.
The company is currently testing the safety and efficacy of investigational medicinal treatment DCVAC through multiple Phase I to Phase III clinical trials.
