IPSCIO Record ID: 306612
GP2 is an immunotherapy designed to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer following surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including expression in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or over-expressor) levels. The patents are titled Vaccine for the Prevention of Breast Cancer Recurrence, and, Targeted Identification of Immunogenic Peptides.
GP2, an immunotherapy designed to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer following surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including expression in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or over-expressor) levels. In a Phase IIb clinical trial completed in 2018, no recurrences were observed in the HER2/neu 3+ adjuvant setting after median 5 years of follow-up, if the patient received the 6 primary intradermal injections over the first 6 months.
Following breast cancer surgery, a HER2/neu 3+ patient receives Herceptin in the first year, with the hope that their breast cancer will not recur, with the odds of recurrence slowly decreasing over the first 5 years after surgery. Herceptin has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 25% to 12% in the adjuvant setting while Kadcyla has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 22% to 11% in the neoadjuvant setting.
Patent 1 –
Title Vaccine for the Prevention of Breast Cancer Recurrence
Provisional Patent Application No. 61/121,220
Patent 2 –
Title Targeted Identification of Immunogenic Peptides
as described in U.S. Patent Application No. 12/045,402 filed on 3/10/2008 and Australian Application No. 2008201427 filed on 3/28/2008, both claiming priority to U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/714,865 filed on 09/08/2005 and International Application No. PCT/US2006/035171 filed on 09/08/2006; and
as described in International Application No. PCT/US2006/035171 filed on 09/08/2006 and all corresponding National Stage Applications including but not limited to Japanese Patent Application No. 2008-530244, European Patent Application No. 06824918.4 filed on 3/31/2008, and Canadian Patent Application No. 2,622,036 filed on 3/10/2008; and
as described in International Application No. PCT/GB2008/050227 filed 03/28/2008 and all its corresponding National Stage Applications
The Field means (a) all fields of use with respect to Patent titled Vaccine for the Prevention of Breast Cancer Recurrence; and (b) use of the HER family peptide GP2 in combination with HerceptinÂ® and only in the field of human therapeutics with respect to Patent titled Targeted Identification of Immunogenic Peptides.
This agreement is in support of the GP2 breast cancer vaccine Phase II clinical trial.
Licensee believes that GP2 may be used to address the 50% of recurring cancer patients who do not respond to either Herceptin or Kadcyla in the treatment of breast cancer.

Ii-Key is a peptide derived from the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) Class II associated invariant chain (Ii) that regulates the formation, trafficking, and antigen-presenting functions of MHC class II complexes, essential for the activation of T cells in the immune response. T cells recognize antigenic epitopes when they are â€˜presentedâ€™ to them by specific molecules, termed (MHC) on the surface of infected or malignant cells. This interaction activates the T cells, stimulating a multicellular cascade of actions that eliminates the diseased cell and protects against future disease recurrence.
In 2006 Phase I clinical trial was completed of AE37 in breast cancer, including a phase Ib safety and immunology study of AE37 in combination with GM-CSF in 16 breast cancer patients who had completed all first-line therapies and who were disease-free at the time of enrollment to the study (Holmes et al. Results of the first phase I clinical trial of the novel Ii-Key hybrid preventive HER-2/neu peptide (AE37) vaccine. J Clin Oncol 2008;263426-33).
The Foundation conducted the study, under the sponsorship of an institute affiliated with the United States Military until the IND #12229 was transferred to the Company, after which Foundation continued trial management on behalf of the Company.
The Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing medicine by administering, managing and supporting preeminent scientific programs.
Licensee is an oncology company focused on the modulation of the immune system to treat cancer and is developing immunotherapeutic products and vaccines based on our proprietary, patented platform technology, Ii-Key.
