LOS ANGELES, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --– ImmunoCellular Therapeutics, Ltd. ("ImmunoCellular") (NYSE MKT: IMUC) today provided an update on the strategic review of its financing and development strategies for ICT-107, its patient-specific, dendritic cell-based immunotherapy for patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma.
ImmunoCellular has determined that the Company is unable at this time to secure sufficient additional financial resources to complete the phase 3 registration trial of ICT-107. As a result, the Company intends to suspend further patient randomization in the ICT-107 trial while it continues to seek a collaborative arrangement or acquisition of its ICT-107 program. The Company plans to actively work with current collaborators to ensure that patients already randomized and receiving treatment in the phase 3 trial can be appropriately supported and followed. The suspension of the phase 3 registration trial of ICT-107 is expected to reduce the amount of cash used in the Company's operations.
While maintaining the focus on its Stem-to-T-Cell research programs, ImmunoCellular continues its evaluation of financing and strategic alternatives for its immuno-oncology research and development pipeline and technology platform, which may include a potential merger, consolidation, reorganization or other business combination, as well as the sale of the Company or the Company's assets.
