Disruptive Validated Technology
Cancer Stem Cell Targeting +
Potent Immunotherapy
= Effective Cancer Eradication

Why Cancer Vaccines Previously Failed?
Problem
Solution
• Late-stage disease
• Minimal residual disease
• Immune compromised patients
• Immune competent patients at
diagnosis
• Dendritic cells with persistent Tcell immune response
• Weak immune response
• Tumor mutation/escape
• Flawed trial endpoints
• Targeted tumor bulk
• Target multiple antigens
• Overall survival endpoint
• Target cancer stem cells
4
Without killing CSCs, it is like spraying for weeds without killing the roots.
The weeds (tumors) come back.
Immunotherapy Has Advantages in
Targeting Cancer Stem Cells
Immunotherapy can elicit T-cell mediated rejection of tumors
• T cells are the way the body kills cancer cells
• Improves specificity
• Targets intracellular & surface antigens
• Better safety profile
• Differentiates between CSCs and normal stem cells
Antibodies only target CSC antigens
on the surface of cancer cells
Cytotoxic T-cells target CSC
antigens cancer presented by MHCs

ICT-140: Ovarian Cancer Vaccine
Ovarian cancer is similar to GBM
 Minimal residual disease after surgery
 Immuno-responsive
Dendritic cell vaccine targeting CSCs
 Seven antigens over-expressed in ovarian cancer, including three
antigens used in ICT-107
̶ HER2/neu, IL-13Rα2, MAGE1, mesothelin, EphA2, & two more antigens
 File IND by Q4/2012
23
ICT-121: CSC-targeted Universal Vaccine
• Dendritic cell vaccine loaded with two CD133 peptides
• CD133 is highly expressed on CSCs
• CD133 is expressed on most solid tumors, including brain,
colon, non-small cell lung, melanoma, pancreatic, and breast
cancer
• Initial indication in recurrent GBM
• PI-sponsored Phase I trial at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
 20 patients
 IND approved; plan
enrollment Q4/2012
24
Inverse Correlation between CD133
Expression with Survival on Gliomas
CD133 expression correlates inversely with
grade II to IV glioma patient survival time. The
survival time calculated from the day of
operation was plotted against the percentage
of CD133+ cells in the CD45-cell fraction from
the specimens of each patient. UD:
undetectable CD133 expression. Bold black
bars indicate the median survival time for
patients in groups with CD133+ cells either
lower or higher than 30% of total CD45-cells.
