Presentation will include review of the company and its unique autologous dendritic cell vaccines for cancer, including clinical data and an operational update.

HOUSTON–June 3, 2024–Diakonos Oncology Corp., a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company, announced today that Chief Financial Officer and Head Of Business Development Anthony Baldor will give a company presentation at the 2024 BIO International Convention June 3 – 6, 2024 in San Diego. The corporate update will be June 4 at 3 pm PT in Company Presentation Theater 2 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Mr. Baldor’s presentation will include a review of Diakonos’ highly differentiated double-loaded autologous dendritic cell vaccines for cancer, and an operational update on the company’s plans for growth, including clinical development outlook and expansion of its leadership team.

Diakonos recently completed a Phase 1 trial of DOC1021, its lead vaccine for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), and is planning a Phase 2 study. The US Food and Drug Administration has granted Fast Track and Orphan Drug status for DOC1021. Two other clinical trials are under way with dendritic cell vaccines targeting pancreatic cancer and angiosarcoma.

“We are very excited about the results of our Phase 1 trial for GBM,” Mr. Baldor said. “Data observed to date give us great confidence in our dendritic cell vaccines and their potential to treat a broad range of solid tumor cancers, including the most deadly. Twelve month survival is currently at 90% for evaluable patients, and the therapy is well tolerated.”

Diakonos’ dendritic cell vaccines activate robust cytotoxic TH1 cell signaling pathways that better harness a patient’s immune system to target and eliminate cancer cells by initiating a natural immune response. This is achieved without any genetic modification of the patient’s immune cells, which greatly simplifies the manufacturing process and significantly reduces costs when compared to leading cell therapy approaches.
