VBL Therapeutics to Provide an Update on the OVAL Study Today at the H. C. Wainwright 22nd Annual Global Investment Conference
TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VBL Therapeutics (Nasdaq: VBLT) will present today a corporate overview, including an update on the OVAL pivotal study, at the H. C. Wainwright 22nd Annual Global Investment Conference being held virtually on September 14-16, 2020.
"Our OVAL trial of VB-111 in ovarian cancer continues to progress well, with over a third of the study participants already enrolled," said Dror Harats, MD, Chief Executive Officer of VBL Therapeutics. "We are pleased that the high response rate seen in our interim analysis in March, continues to be high in the total patient population to date. With blinded data becoming more mature, we currently see a good correlation between the CA-125 and RECIST responses, as well as with preliminary PFS and OS data. So far, OVAL blinded data recapitulate what we have seen in our positive Phase 2 study, which is very encouraging."

Vascular Biogenics Ltd., operating as VBL Therapeutics, is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of first-in-class treatments for areas of unmet need in cancer and immune/inflammatory indications. VBL has developed three platform technologies: a gene-therapy based technology for targeting newly formed blood vessels with focus on cancer, an antibody-based technology targeting MOSPD2 for anti-inflammatory and immuno-oncology applications, and the Lecinoxoids, a family of small-molecules for immune-related indications. VBL’s lead oncology product candidate, ofranergene obadenovec (VB-111), is a first-in-class, targeted anti-cancer gene-therapy agent that is being developed to treat a wide range of solid tumors. It is conveniently administered as an IV infusion once every 6-8 weeks. It has been observed to be well-tolerated in >300 cancer patients and demonstrated activity signals in a VBL-sponsored “all comers” Phase 1 trial as well as in three VBL-sponsored tumor-specific Phase 2 studies. Ofranergene obadenovec is currently being studied in a VBL-sponsored Phase 3 potential registration trial for platinum-resistant ovarian cancer.
