Harnessing the Power of Immune System
Leading Immunotherapy Approach:
CANCER
•
•
•
Making tumors visible to T-cells
Stimulating T-killer cells AND T-helper cells
Applicable to broad patient populations
INFECTIOUS DISEASE
•
•
•
Up-regulation of Antigen Presentation
Stimulating T-killer cells & T-helper cells
Applicable Multiple Infectious Diseases and
Biothreats
The Immune System
Corporate Presentation
July 2012
The body’s immune system is designed to
fight cancer & viral infections
Cancers evade the immune system
allowing tumor growth
Reasons:

The Cancer Markers (antigens) are NOT presented
to the Immune System


Low or Absent T A P (Antigen Transporter)
Epitopes are NOT Naturally Processed (NPE)

T cell response is SHORT lived (No Helper Cells CD4)

T cell response is NOT a KILLER cell response (CD8)
PROBLEM: cancer evades the immune system and current
approaches do not address ALL the reasons adequately

PROBLEM: To Stimulate the Immunse System to Effectively KILL Tumors
The TapImmune Approach
Corporate Presentation
July 2012
Prime BOTH sides of the tumor Killing equation
Proprietary peptide antigens used to stimulate a
broad based
• T - Helper cell response (CD4) LONG-LIVED
• KILLER T-cells to actually KILL the tumor (CD8)
These Proprietary Antigens allow us to treat:
• Wider patient populations
• Multiple Indications
• Multiple Therapeutic Areas (Cancer and
Infectious Disease)
SOLUTION: most COMPREHENSIVE immunotherapeutic in development

Corporate Presentation

Trial 1: Her2neu Breast Cancer - Mayo Clinic Rochester MN
HER2/neu positive breast cancer is one of most aggressive forms
HER2/neu is overexpressed in ~ 30% breast cancer patients (total 220,000 /yr)
Roche’s monoclonal antibody, Herceptin (current standard of care) can only treat ~
20% of these patients (+$6 billion sales in 2013)
Herceptin does not stimulate Killer T-cells – it slows/retards tumor growth
In Contrast: We believe TapImmune’s comprehensive combination of Killers and
Helpers has the potential to provide Long Lasting Immune Response in upto 84% of
the HER2/neu positive patient population.
A $ Multi-Billion product potential meeting an UNSATISFIED CLINICAL NEED in a
very LARGE Market
Herceptin Facts:
Late Stage Survival improved by 4.5 Months.
Early stage treatment resulted in a 9.5% improvement on recurrence.
70% of Her2neu+ patients do NOT respond to treatment

Class II antigens (4 epitopes NPE) discovered in breast
cancer patients - Clin. Cancer Res. (2010) 16, 825-83
• 22 Patients post Herceptin
• 6 x monthly intradermal + GMCSF
 Interim safety checkpoint completed
 Positive Immune responses on first 6 patients (interim data)
Excellent Results – Support progression to Phase ll

Her2neu Breast Cancer - Mayo Clinic Rochester MN
Leading HER2/neu Vaccine Candidate
Peptide Antigens to stimulate BOTH:
•
T-helper cells – Long Lasting
• Antigens discovered in breast cancer
patients
• Naturally Processed Epitopes (NPE’s)
•
Killer T-cells (p373-382) - Kills Tumor Cells
Compared to NeuVax by Galena:
4-5x greater KILLING activity against human tumor cell targets

Trial 2: Stage II/II Ovarian & Breast Cancer - Mayo Clinic
Folate Receptor Alpha is expressed over 95% of ovarian cancers, for which the
only treatment options are surgery and chemotherapy
Very important and urgent clinical need for a new therapeutic.
Time to recurrence is relatively short for this type of cancer and survival
prognosis is extremely poor after recurrence.
US alone, approximately 30,000 ovarian cancer patients newly diagnosed every
year.
Phase llb/2 advancement expected in late 2014.
