EpicentRx announces Phase 3
REPLATINUM study of RRx-001
in Small Cell Carcinoma

First Ever Treatment of Cancer Patients with Personalized Custom-Made Viral Vaccines

At EpicentRx, No Cancer Is Safe.

The cancer genetic code is an Enigma and at EpicentRx our “code breakers” are actively involved in trying to crack the Enigma code of each patient’s cancer.

The goal of next generation immuno-oncology at EpicentRx is to improve responses and break through the immune checkpoint 20-30% response rate ceiling with minimal toxicity. I think we’re on track to do that with RRx-001 and the oncolytic viruses.

Toxicity to Tumors not to Patients

About EpicentRx

A Clinical Stage Immuno-Oncology Company

With a prolific platform of small molecule therapies, innate immune checkpoint inhibitors, cell based therapies, vaccines and oncolytic viruses, the central focus of EpicentRx Inc., a privately owned physician-led phase 3 clinical-stage immuno-oncology company located in San Diego, California, is on anticancer immunization and chemo/radioprotection of normal tissues. As a company of actively practicing oncologists/internists we at EpicentRx take cancer very very personally (in a literal and figurative sense) with the plight of the patient serving first and foremost as the motivation to customize or personalize our platform of immunotherapies both to individuals that are otherwise out of options and to groups of individuals with common and in many cases currently undruggable mutations.

For further information, please contact us.

RRx-001

As a “next generation” small molecule immunotherapeutic, RRx-001 stimulates both the innate and adaptive immune systems and can be used as monotherapy or as a combination partner for chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation and targeted agents.

PHASE 3 REPLATINUM

EpicentRx is currently sponsoring a Phase 3 clinical trial called REPLATINUM for patients with advanced small cell carcinoma, investigating the activity and safety of RRx-001 in combination with platinum doublet chemotherapy versus platinum chemotherapy alone. The REPLATINUM study will commence enrollment in late 2018.

Custom Oncolytic Viruses

Multiple proprietary viral vectors with an almost unlimited number of transgene options have been developed to treat patients with multiple tumor types and mutations.

Personalized Viral Vaccines

The application of viruses engineered to express tumor antigens and immunostimulatory cytokines induce an immune response, which potentially leads to durable tumor rejection.
