Title: A Phase 2, Randomized Study of Proscavax, a PSA/IL-2/GM-CSF Vaccine, in Treatment-naive Patients with Clinically Localized Prostate Cancer Versus an Active Surveillance Strategy
Brief Summary: This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of a prostate cancer vaccine named Proscavax(Prostate-specific antigen(PSA) / Interleukin-2(IL-2) / Granulocyte-macrophagecolony-stimulating factor(GM-CSF)) in patients with localized prostate cancer. The goal ofthe study is to determine if vaccine administration results in a change in the rate of prostate cancer progression when compared to a no-treatment control group of active surveillance patients. The researchers are interested in evaluating the proportion of participants with prostate cancer progression at 2 years following administration of Proscavax or active surveillance, the effect of the vaccine on prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doubling time and the assessmentof adverse events in these patients. Eligible patients in this study will include men who are 18 years and older and who have a previously untreated early stage prostate cancer regardless of the date of diagnosis.

The FDA site hasn't been updated to recruiting yet. Just an admin thing imo. As submitted, the Phase 2 clinical protocol will randomly enroll 120 early-stage prostate cancer patients with 40 patients on standard active surveillance and 80 patients receiving ProscaVax. The patients’ PSAs and yearly biopsies will be monitored for disease progression. The follow-up of the patients will be for two years. The investigators are Dr. Rupal Bhatt, Dr. Glenn Bubley and Dr. David Einstein at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center of Harvard Medical School. Early clinical research of ProscaVax, including a Phase 1 study in PSA progressing prostate cancer in hormone-naïve and hormone-independent patients, has shown ProscaVax to be well tolerated with a strong safety profile. Data from late-stage patients further shows signs of efficacy with respect to an increased immune response and slowing tumor progression.
“We are very excited to move forward on a trial for patients on Active Surveillance for prostate cancer. Immune therapies have shown promise across many fields in oncology and we hope that ProscaVax™ can show activity in patients with low risk prostate cancer,” said Dr. Rupal Bhatt.

Here is a quick link to the latest press releases:
Proscavax has the most potential in the pipeline and will be starting Phase 2 clinical trials at BIDMC (Harvard Medical) and UCNT (Urinary Clinic of North Texas):

If you would like to check out their patents check out this message with links:
They were listed at OTCQB, but due to acquiring and then retracting a deal with Vitel this resulted in a most likely temporary downgrade to Pink, I'm expecting the up-listing back to OTCQB soon.
Here's some info for both trials...
ProscaVax – A Novel Prostate Cancer Vaccine
The Company has developed a therapeutic cancer vaccine for prostate cancer patients using similar techniques developed for breast cancer patients. It is tested and laboratory proven and could become the standard of care for prostate cancer treatment. The Company incorporates scientifically proven and clinically validated treatments for cancer. We utilize patented technology developed and or acquired by OncBioMune. The intellectual property consists of multiple technologies combined with laboratory and clinical procedures that provide new insight into the treatment of cancer. The Company’s proprietary technology provides the necessary tools for the successful treatment of patient’s with a therapeutic vaccine. It is marketable and would be very profitable upon FDA approval.
The Company has data from a phase 1/2 clinical trial of their therapeutic prostate cancer vaccine. Patients with prostate cancer confirmed by biopsy and with an elevated PSA received the vaccine. We enrolled 12 patients in this study. All patients received their initial course of six vaccinations containing prostate specific antigen and biological adjuvant. Serum PSA concentrations were determined before initiating vaccination and 3-4 weeks after the 6th vaccination. Two-thirds of the prostate cancer patients’ PSAs decreased after vaccination. During the trial the prostate cancer patients received no other concurrent therapy (surgery, hormone, radiation, radioactive seeds, chemotherapy), and have additionally received three further vaccinations alternated with low dose IL-2 for the 6 months following the initial vaccinations. The Company developed the protocol for the vaccination of prostate cancer patients using techniques developed for vaccination of breast cancer patients. We are currently in a Phase 1 clinical trial at UCSD Medical School under an IND from the FDA with funding from the US Navy Cancer Vaccine Program. If proven effective clinically, it could become the standard of care for prostate cancer.
Information on the current clinical trial of ProscaVax can be found on the clinictrials.gov at https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02058680?term=oncbiomune&rank=1.
