The poster presentations are titled: "Multi-genome reassortant dendritic cell-tropic vector platform (ZVex®) allows flexible co-expression of multiple antigens and immune modulators for optimal induction of anti-tumor CD8+ T cell responses" and "Heterologous boosts with an adenoviral vector following a dendritic cell-tropic ZVex® prime generates robust antigen-specific T cell responses and enhanced anti-tumor protection."These posters will be posted on the publications page of the Immune Design website following presentation at the conference. About ZVex ZVex is Immune Design's discovery platform designed to activate and expand the immune system's natural ability to create tumor-specific cytotoxic T cells (CTLs) in vivo. The ZVex delivery system is designed to use a re-engineered virus to carry genetic information of one or more conserved tumor antigens, including neo-epitopes, as well as immune-modulatory molecules, selectively to dendritic cells to create CTLs to target tumor cells bearing that same tumor antigen(s). About Immune Design Immune Design is a clinical-stage immunotherapy company employing next-generation in vivo approaches to enable the body's immune system to fight disease. The company's technologies are engineered to activate the immune system's natural ability to generate and/or expand antigen-specific cytotoxic T cells, while also enhancing other immune effectors, to fight cancer and other chronic diseases. CMB305 and G100, the primary focus of Immune Design's ongoing immuno-oncology clinical programs, are products of its two synergistic discovery platforms, ZVex® and GLAAS TM.
