CEL-SCI And Ergomed Sign Co-Development And Profit Sharing Agreement For Multikine In HIV/HPV Co-Infected Men And Women With Peri-Anal Warts

CEL-SCI Corporation (NYSE MKT: CVM) today announced that it has signed a co-development and profit sharing agreement with Ergomed Clinical Research Ltd. for CEL-SCI’s investigational immunotherapy drug Multikine (“Leucocyte Interleukin Inj.”) in HIV/HPV co-infected men and women with peri-anal warts. CEL-SCI has also recently entered a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) for this disease indication with the US Naval Medical Center, San Diego.

Anal and genital warts are commonly associated with the Human Papilloma Virus, the most common sexually transmitted disease. Men and women with a history of anogenital warts have a 30-fold increased risk of anal cancer. Persistent HPV infection in the anal region is thought to be responsible for up to 80% of anal cancers. HPV is a significant health problem in the HIV infected population because, although they live longer as a result of greatly improved HIV treatments, their immune systems remain compromised.

Geert Kersten, Chief Executive Officer of CEL-SCI said, ”We believe that if the data from the studies in HIV/HPV co-infected men and women with anal warts meet our expectations, this may represent a shorter clinical development route for Multikine which could possibly enable the submission of a marketing application before completion of our ongoing Phase III clinical trial for head and neck cancer. The addition of Ergomed as a committed co-development partner to the combined efforts of CEL-SCI and the US Navy will be extremely helpful and will potentially save us a lot of time during the clinical development process.”

Miroslav Reljanovic, Chief Executive of Ergomed added, “We took over patient recruitment of CEL-SCI’s Multikine Phase III head and neck cancer study in April of this year and are now in the process of rapidly expanding the study to meet its recruitment goals. At a recent investigator meeting we met with many enthusiastic investigators who are planning to join this trial and we are on track to meet the study’s enrollment goals. In the process of working on this Phase III study we have gained a level of comfort with Multikine that leads us to broaden our co-development collaboration, for the second time in two weeks, with CEL-SCI into this new unmet medical need indication.”
