Immunomic Therapeutics' Dr. Larry Weiner to Present at ACAAI Meeting 11/10/13

Immunomic Therapeutics’ Medical Monitor, Dr. Lawrence Weiner, to Present at the 2013 ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting November 10th in Baltimore, MD.

Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc., (“ITI”) a privately-held biotechnology company with laboratories in Rockville, MD, announced that it has been accepted to present at the 2013 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, taking place November 7-11, 2013, at the Baltimore Convention Center. ITI’s Medical Monitor, Lawrence Weiner, will present the results of ITI’s Phase IA Study of JRC-LAMP-Vax™ , a DNA Immunotherapy Vaccine to Treat Japanese Red Cedar Allergy.

At the event, ITI will present findings of the Phase I trial of JRC-LAMP-vax vaccine, conducted at ITI’s clinical site in Honolulu, Hawaii, and completed in May 2013. The Company is pleased to report that JRC-LAMP-vax™ met all of its primary safety end points. Within the three subject sub-groups, (24 total patients) there were no reports of any Severe Adverse Events. In addition to monitoring vaccine safety, subjects were also evaluated for allergic skin test status as a secondary endpoint for immunological responses. The allergic marker results indicate a favorable trend in resolving the allergy. Specifically, a number of the subjects, both skin test positive and skin test negative at the start of the trial, were found to be skin test negative at the end of the study: 10 of 12 converted from positive to negative for whole JRC extract and all subjects were negative for the specific cedar allergen Cry J2. Dr. Weiner will also be presenting preliminary data from the Phase IB study which recruited most of the Phase I patients for additional skin test monitoring.

The ACAAI 70th Annual Scientific Meeting (November 7-11, 2013 in Baltimore, MD), entitled, “New Frontiers in Allergy and Immunology: From Bench to Clinic,” will feature a variety of educational sessions for physicians and allied health professionals. This event is an opportunity for ITI to meet with allergists and immunologists, potential future collaborators, clinical investigators and future prescribers of LAMP-vax vaccines. At the event, ITI’s Medical Monitor, Dr. Lawrence Weiner, will be presenting in more detail regarding LAMP technology and mechanism, the objectives, study design and findings of the Phase IA clinical study, as well as future clinical development plans. Dr. Weiner is scheduled to speak during Session C - Aerobiology; Allergy Testing/Clinical Laboratory Immunology; Immunotherapy/Immunizations on Sunday, November 10th at 2:30 PM at the Baltimore Convention Center. (Rooms 307-309)

ITI’s CEO, Bill Hearl, commented, “We are excited about this opportunity for ITI to showcase its technology and clinical findings, in order to educate with and build awareness of LAMP technology and LAMP-allergy immunotherapies in the allergy community.”

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, established in 1942, is a professional association of more than 5,700 Allergists/Immunologists and allied health professionals. See for more information.
