About Vigil EATC: Vigil is an investigational cellular immunotherapy technology that combines the concepts of genetic engineering with the science of immuno-oncology, to enable an immune response to cancer cells. A patient’s tumor cells are engineered with a plasmid carrying the gene vector for shRNA Furin and GMCSF to elicit a systemic T-cell directed immune response when administered to the patient through intradermal injections. By utilizing the patient’s own tumor as the antigen source, Vigil EATC is designed to elicit an immune response that is specifically targeted and broadly relevant to each patient’s unique tumor antigens.  Vigil EATC is being studied in Ewing’s Sarcoma and Ovarian cancer as a single agent, and in Breast cancer, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Melanoma in combination with PD1 and PD-L1 inhibitors.  More information about these studies can be found on www.vigilclinicaltrials.com.
