About Immunicum AB (publ):
Immunicum AB (publ) develops cancer immunotherapies. Its two main groups of therapeutic cancer vaccines, SUBCUVAX(TM) and INTUVAX®, and the method of expansion of tumor-specific T-cells (CD70) is based on the Nobel prize awarded discovery of the dendritic cell and its central role in the activation of the specific immune response. Because the raw material consists of dendritic cells from healthy donors, Immunicum’s products can be produced in large scale. The vaccines have earlier proven efficacy in animal studies and are now undergoing clinical trials in patients.
