About PDS Biotechnology
PDS Biotech is a clinical stage immunotherapy company developing a growing portfolio of cancer immunotherapies and infectious disease vaccines based on the proprietary product of the company VersamuneÂ® Technological platform for T lymphocyte activation. Our VersamuneÂ®-based products can overcome the limitations of current immunotherapy by inducing in vivo, large amounts of high quality and highly potent polyfunctional CD4 + T cells and CD8 + killer T cells. PDS Biotech has developed several experimental therapies, based on combinations of VersamuneÂ® and disease-specific antigens, designed to train the immune system to better recognize diseased cells and to attack and destroy them effectively. Our immuno-oncology product candidates are initially being studied in combination therapy to potentially improve efficacy without worsening toxicity in a range of cancer types. PDS0101, the Company’s leading investigational cancer immunotherapy product, is currently in Phase 2 clinical studies in HPV-associated cancers.

PDS Biotech lead candidate PDS0101 combines utility of VersamuneÂ® platform with antigens targeted in cancers expressing HPV. In partnership with Merck and Co., PDS Biotech is evaluating a combination of PDS0101 and KEYTRUDAÂ® in a phase 2 study in the first-line treatment of recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer. PDS Biotech is also conducting two additional Phase 2 studies in advanced HPV-associated cancers and advanced localized cervical cancer with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, respectively.
