Clinical study results demonstrate long term survival in dogs with osteosarcoma treated with ELIAS cancer immunotherapy

Results of a clinical study of the ELIAS cancer immunotherapy (ECI®) protocol demonstrated that the administration of an autologous cancer cell vaccination, adoptive T cell transfer, and interleukin‐2 resulted in long‐term survival for dogs with osteosarcoma, a deadly form of bone cancer. The article, published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine by researchers from the University of Missouri, describes the 14-dog single-arm prospective study and discusses the results. The objective of the study was to evaluate the hypothesis that dogs could be treated safely with the ECI protocol, which includes administration of ex vivo activated T cells, and experience survival times twice that of amputation alone. Median survival time for dogs in the study was 415 days, with one dog developing metastasis then experiencing spontaneous complete remission. Read the full study results. In May, ELIAS Animal Health announced the initiation of a follow-up study to pursue licensure of ECI [...]

ELIAS Animal Health Announces Positive Results in Treatment of Osteosarcoma in Dogs

Olathe, Kan., Oct. 25, 2018 – ELIAS Animal Health, a clinical stage development company advancing novel treatments for cancer in companion animals, announced results from its canine osteosarcoma immunotherapy trial at the 2018 Veterinary Cancer Society (VCS) Annual Conference. The study evaluating ELIAS’ Autologous Prescription Product, known as ECI® (ELIAS Cancer Immunotherapy) resulted in a median survival time (MST) of 415 days in animals completing therapy – compared to historical treatment outcomes associated with surgery alone (134 days1). These results will be included in the ELIAS submission to USDA-CVB during the fourth quarter. ELIAS intends to initiate a larger field safety and efficacy study in early 2019. “We are very encouraged by our osteosarcoma clinical trial results as we move towards commercialization of ECI® for the veterinary community, while continuing to explore our platform technology in other cancers such as lymphoma,” said Noe Reyes, D.V.M., ELIAS medical director. The trial [...]
