  • Vigo - Oncos Therapeutics Demonstrates Systemic, Tumor-specific Immune Response by Local Administration of its Lead Product ONCOS-102
    targeted immune responses in late stage cancer patients is a significant achievement in cancer immunotherapy even though the number of study subjects was limited in this trial said Magnus Jaderberg M D Chief Medical Officer of Oncos During the trial a number of biological samples were collected prior to and after ONCOS 102 treatment to evaluate the biological activity of the therapy Sample analysis showed that the treatment triggered an immediate innate immune response as measured by a temporary increase in pro inflammatory cytokines and infiltration of innate immune cells into the tumor area These responses were seen in both blood and tumor biopsies Also an infiltration of CD8 T cells of cytotoxic phenotype was seen in post treatment biopsies Analysis of the antigen specificity of cytotoxic T cells in peripheral blood prior to and after treatment with ONCOS 102 showed that the therapy induced a tumor specific immunity in patients with advanced solid tumors These results clearly demonstrate the potential of our immunotherapy platform said Frans Wuite M D President and Chief Executive Officer of Oncos We now intend to move our lead compound forward to Phase II in selected indications in combination with other anti cancer treatments including immune checkpoint inhibitors more About ONCOS 102 ONCOS 102 Ad5 3 D24 GMCSF is a modified tumor targeted human adenovirus capable of local delivery of a potent immune stimulating transgene granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor GM CSF to the tumor microenvironment In addition to this Phase I study the safety of ONCOS 102 has been demonstrated in over 100 patients with refractory cancers who received treatment with ONCOS 102 under compassionate use circumstances About Oncos Therapeutics Oncos Therapeutics Ltd is a privately funded clinical stage biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of targeted cancer immunotherapy products that induce

  • Vigo - Supercell stakeholders launch new €15 Million angel fund
    All the funds want to grow bigger first you have your 10 million 30 million then 100 million Our first fund was around 30 million we established three years ago So now we re doing a 15 million fund which is half of that The reasoning Ahopelto gives is that they really want to get the angel stage and the super early stage where they say they do their best With a smaller fund and larger investments they have the luxury of picking out the best teams while having enough hands on time to be the entrepreneur s sparring partner Ahopelto points to the recent stats released by FIBAN that state that the average angel investment in Finland is around 50 000 Right now in the angel fund we can make angel investments up to half a million That way we can make sure really the best teams coming out of Finland can be competitive to Silicon Valley where the hottest companies can raise 500 000 angel investments from an single investor In comparison Supercell whose CEO Ilkka Paananen is an advisor at Lifeline had trouble raising it s 750 000 seed round from Finland and had to shop around outside of the country But that 500 000 angel round is the investment size they re somewhat shooting for Additionally the fund really isn t a fund in the traditional sense Rather than investing over a fixed timeline Ahopelto says this 15 million could be looked at as more of new investment firm that invests when it wants to That doesn t mean it can t grow but this is the first capital that we ve started with says Ahopelto Source Arctic StartUp 2014 04 24 15 16 Marit Tuominen ANGEL FUND SUPERCELL 0 Recent Articles Cleantech Invest shifts to
