 Stylized Dendritic Cell

A "personalized brain cancer vaccine, DCVAX, is the first of its  kind and... is on the road to FDA approval."
- Neil A. Martin, Chairman, UCLA Department of Neurosurgery

Corporate Profile

NW Bio is developing cancer vaccines designed to treat a broad range of solid tumor cancers more effectively than current treatments, and without the side effects of chemotherapy drugs.  NW Bio’s proprietary manufacturing technology enables them to produce its personalized vaccine in an efficient, cost-effective manner. NW Bio has a broad platform technology for DCVax dendritic cell-based vaccines.

Their lead product, DCVax-L, is currently in a 348-patient Phase III trial for patients with newly diagnosed Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive and lethal brain cancer.  This trial is currently underway at 69 locations thoughout the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom. NW Bio has also conducted a Phase I/II trial with DCVax-L for late stage ovarian cancer together with the University of Pennsylvania.

Their second product, DCVax-Direct, is currently in a 60-patient Phase I/II trial for direct injection into all types of inoperable solid tumor cancers, with trials currently being conducted at both MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas, as well as Orlando Health in Florida.  

 They previously received clearance from the FDA for a 612-patient Phase III trial with its third product, DCVax-Prostate, for late stage prostate cancer.
