NNW’s Stuart Smith introduces BriaCell’s CEO, Dr. Bill Williams in an interview that highlights the Company’s innovative business model, milestones and unique immunotherapeutic approach to cancer treatment.
BriaCell is an immune-oncology company developing the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer. Dr. Williams notes that since the Company’s inception in 2014, it has made excellent progress through successfully conducting clinical trials for its lead immunotherapy candidate, Bria-IMT(Trademarked). BriaCell recently added new clinical sites for conducting its Phase IIa studies, which Dr. Williams says will be beneficial to the recruitment of eligible patients, as well as validation of the Company’s technology by leading academic experts.
Dr. Williams next highlights the strength of BriaCell’s management team, including his own expertise in moving therapies through clinical testing, bench-to-bedside research and drug development. The team also boasts R&D technical and scientific experience, with varied expertise in moving programs forward for developing therapeutics that will fulfill the FDA’s stringent marketing requirements, and become available to the patients who need them the most.
BriaCell has accomplished several milestones in 2018, including obtaining topline safety and efficacy clinical data in its clinical study and advancing BriaCell’s clinical programs. The Company published a comprehensive research paper for Frontiers in Immunology providing details on the mechanism by which its targeted immunotherapy is unique in harnessing the patient’s immune system to specifically attack cancer cells.
Moving forward, BriaCell is focused on several initiatives, including the start of a combination therapy study to further boost the efficacy of its lead candidate, as well as generating its personalized off-the-shelf immunotherapy treatments to cover 90% of patient population, a major focus of the Company, and one Dr. Williams believes is “going to revolutionize cancer immunotherapy.”
The discussion concludes with Dr. Williams attributing BriaCell’s focus on making a positive impact in patient’s lives, some entering the Company’s studies after exhausting all other options, as both rewarding and a key factor of success.
With a strategic path in place, Dr. Williams says, “We’re still, I believe, tremendously undervalued compared to our competitors… So we think that this is a great opportunity for investors to come in to get as excited about our story as we are and to follow us along as we start to change the face of the immuno-oncology space.”
BriaCell is an immuno-oncology-focused biotechnology company developing targeted and safe approaches for the management of cancer.
BriaCell is currently conducting a Phase I/IIa clinical trial of Bria-IMT(Trademarked), its lead candidate, in patients with advanced breast cancer. This trial is listed in ClinicalTrials.gov as NCT03066947. Additionally, the FDA recently approved a combination study of Bria-IMT with pembrolizumab [Keytruda; manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.] or ipilimumab [Yervoy; manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company]. The combination study is listed in ClinicalTrials.gov as NCT03328026.
BriaCell is developing Bria-OTS(Trademarked), an off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy, for advanced breast cancer. Bria-OTS immunotherapy treatments are personalized to match the patient without the need for personalized manufacturing. Bria-OTS, which is expected to cover over 90% of the patient population, is designed to produce a potent and selective immune response against the cancer of each patient while eliminating the time, expense, and complex manufacturing logistics associated with other personalized immunotherapies.
