About DPX-Survivac

DPX-Survivac is the lead candidate in IMV’s new class of immunotherapies
that programs targeted T cells in vivo. It has demonstrated
the potential for industry-leading targeted, persistent, and durable T
cell activation. IMV believes this mechanism of action (MOA) is key to
generating durable solid tumor regressions. DPX-Survivac consists of
survivin-based peptides formulated in IMV’s proprietary DPX drug
delivery platform. DPX-Survivac is designed to work by eliciting a
cytotoxic T cell immune response against cancer cells presenting
survivin peptides on their surface.

Survivin, recognized by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a
promising tumor-associated antigen, is broadly over-expressed in most
cancer types, and plays an essential role in antagonizing cell death,
supporting tumor-associated angiogenesis, and promoting resistance to
anti-cancer therapies. IMV has identified over 15 cancer indications in
which the over-expression of survivin can be targeted by DPX-Survivac.

DPX-Survivac has received Fast
Track designation
 from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
as maintenance therapy in advanced ovarian cancer, as well as orphan
drug designation status from the U.S. FDA
 and the European
Medicines Agency (EMA)
 in the ovarian cancer indication. It is
currently being evaluated in multiple Phase 1b/2 clinical trials.
