We aren t quite there yet, but innovation is changing the field of healthcare in remarkable ways.

Patients themselves are risk-averse, often rejecting promising clinical trials for a treatment regime with proven results.

Because of these challenges, big pharma companies limited their investments in development of advanced treatment options like immunotherapy unless there was a strong business case and low risk.

Unlike systemically delivered immunotherapies that can produce serious side effects, ImmunoPulse IL-12 is proving to be generally well tolerated and safe across multiple treatment cycles in clinical trials.

This produces a localized immune response and educates fighter immune cells to recognize and attack cancer throughout the body, without attacking healthy cells.

According to Punit Dhillon, President and CEO of OncoSec: Now, our goal is to continue to move this combination approach forward in order to achieve more effective immunotherapy treatments without additional safety concerns for patients who may not have any other treatment options.
