About Advaxis, Inc.
Based in North Brunswick, New Jersey, Advaxis is developing proprietary Listeria monocytogenes ("Lm") cancer vaccines based on technology developed by Dr. Yvonne Paterson, professor of microbiology at the University of Pennsylvania and chairperson of Advaxis' scientific advisory board. Advaxis is developing therapeutic cancer vaccines that enhance the immune system's cancer-fighting abilities through its proprietary Lm based system, which utilizes multiple simultaneous immunological mechanisms to fight cancer safely.
Advaxis' lead Lm vaccine candidate - Lovaxin C - targets cervical and head and neck cancers. Current Lm vaccines in development target prostate, breast, ovarian and lung cancers. Advaxis has completed a Phase I/II clinical trial. The Lm platform will also have applications in the fields of infectious disease and autoimmune disorders.

About Lovaxin C Vaccine
Advaxis' Listeria technology platform uses modified Listeria monocytogenes to deliver a tumor-specific antigen fusion protein. Lm, combined with Advaxis' proprietary fusion protein, has the ability to generate a robust immune response and produce an unusually strong and effective multi-level therapeutic immune response to existing cancers and other diseases.
Advaxis' Lm-based technology is mostly based on Dr. Yvonne Paterson's decade worth of work in her laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania. The Company's proprietary antigen fusion protein technology, also suppresses regulatory T cells that inhibit many vaccines in the creation of activated tumor-killing cells.
Lovaxin C was designed to treat women who have already developed cervical cancer as a result of contracting a human papilloma virus ("HPV") infection, which is the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease in the US. Current prophylactic products on the market are ineffective in treating HPV-infected women.
