- Scancell Holdings has closed patient recruitment for its SCIB1 ImmunoBody Phase 1/2 clinical trial in patients with Stage III/IV melanoma.

The Phase 1/2 clinical trial, conducted across five UK centres, is an open label, non-randomised study to determine the safety and tolerability of SCIB1 administered intramuscularly using an electroporation device (TriGrid Delivery System, manufactured by Ichor Medical Systems, USA).

Part 1 was a dose-escalation designed trial to determine the dose for Part 2. While the primary objective of the study is to access safety and tolerability, the study is also assessing immune response and anti-tumour activity, and the ability of SCIB1 to delay or prevent disease recurrence in patients with resected disease.

In total, 35 patients have now been treated with SCIB1, including ten patients at the higher 8mg dose. Six patients remain on long-term treatment and have received between one and nine additional 4mg or 8mg doses of SCIB1 every three to six months.
