PharmaCyte Biotech | September 02, 2020

PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (OTCQB: PMCB), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing cellular therapies for cancer and diabetes using its signature live-cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®, announced today that it has submitted an Investigational New Drug application (IND) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a planned Phase 2b clinical trial in locally advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer (LAPC). PharmaCyte’s Chief Executive Officer, Kenneth L. Waggoner, commented, “Submitting this IND is the most important milestone the Company has met thus far in the clinical development of our leading product candidate. That’s our therapy to combat what is truly a global unmet medical need for those patients with LAPC whose tumors no longer respond to the first line treatments of either Abraxane® plus gemcitabine or FOLFIRINOX. “Now that the IND has been submitted, we must wait a minimum of 30 calendar days before initiating our clinical trial. During this time, the FDA has an opportunity to review the IND to ensure that it’s complete and that the planned clinical trial research patients will not be subject to unreasonable risk. It also gives the FDA time to ask for more information and clarification about the information submitted.
