About EVX-01 Phase 1 Clinical Trial
The open-label, single-arm, single-center Phase 1 study was conducted in collaboration with DTU, SSI, the Center for Genomic Medicine at Rigshospitalet, and CCIT-DK. The study aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of the EVX-01 vaccine in combination with anti-PD1 (pembrolizumab or Nivolumab) in patients with metastatic melanoma. The design consisted of multiple 15-27mer peptides comprising one or more patient-specific neoantigens formulated with the novel liposomal adjuvant CAF®09b to potentiate immune responses. The primary objective was to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the combination of EVX-01 and a checkpoint inhibitor. Additional information can be accessed under clinical trial ID NCT03715985.
