Bavarian Nordic Announces Acceptance of Abstracts and Oral Presentation at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting

World News: . []

"We are very proud to participate in ASCO, the pre-eminent oncology meeting of the year. We look forward to sharing our progress with the medical community. This includes our phase 3 study of PROSTVAC, which while disappointing in its result, will still provide a number of academic and clinical learnings to the treatment field of prostate cancer, including the advancements in overall survival seen by current standards of care" said Paul Chaplin, President and CEO of Bavarian Nordic. 

"Importantly, the additional posters accepted at ASCO may provide insights into our future development strategies. One study demonstrates the ability of PROSTVAC to drive increased numbers of T cells into newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Another study demonstrated that PROSTVAC combined with nivolumab is safe and has adequate clinical data in advanced metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer to proceed to the planned evaluation of this combination in the neoadjuvant setting of newly diagnosed disease, in cooperation with National Cancer Institute and Bristol-Myers Squibb," Dr. Chaplin concluded.
