 [Technology Description]



1. Description

 HPV therapeutic DNA vaccine for high-grade Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN2/3) in Phase II clinical trial. GX-188E has a potential to induce complete regression of high grade Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia caused by persistent infection with high-risk HPV types, 16/18.

  Phase I clinical trial demonstrated that GX-188E, a rationally designed HPV DNA vaccine to target preferentially HPV antigens to dendritic cells, elicited significant E6/E7specific IFN-γ-producing T-cell responses in all nine cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3 (CIN3) patients when administered intramuscularly by electroporation. Seven out of nine patients displayed complete regression of their CIN3 lesions and viral clearance and exhibited enhanced poly-functional antigen-specific CD8 T-cell responses within 36 weeks of follow up.

2. Clinical trials/clinical strategy

-Phase II in Korea for CIN3 (interim data available)

-Phase II in EU for CIN2/3 (on going)

3. Key publications

-Nature Communications. 2014; 5,5317, (Kim et al.)
