“We have listened to our shareholders and following our recently completed private placement, we believe that we are in a position to hire a solid and innovative marketing firm that can help us tell our story better,” said David Goren, Vaxil’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and continued, “We started the year with the discovery that we may be able to significantly contribute to the fight against COVID-19 followed by preclinical experiments on our potential COVID-19 vaccine candidate. We are ending the year with the launch of our USAMRIID collaboration to test the potential vaccine candidate’s ability to prevent COVID-19 in animals, as well the closing of a private placement, which together with proceeds from the exercise of warrants that took place earlier in the year, provides us with enough cash to continue to work towards fulfilling milestones for our shareholders in 2021.”

Vaxil is an Israeli immunotherapy biotech company focused on its novel approach to targeting prominent cancer markers and infectious diseases. Its lead product ImMucin™ successfully completed a Phase 1/2 clinical trial in multiple myeloma for which it received orphan drug status from the FDA and EMA. The company aims to continue to develop ImMucin™, CorVax™ and a tuberculosis vaccine / treatment that has demonstrated promising preliminary results with further preclinical evaluation planned. Additional indications and mAb candidates are under evaluation as immuno-oncology and infectious disease vaccines and treatments alone and in combination with other treatments.
Vaxil exploits the unique properties of signal peptide domains on crucial proteins to develop targeted therapies against cancer targets and infectious disease pathogens. These signal peptide domains are identified by VaxHit™, Vaxil’s proprietary bioinformatic approach. These signal peptides induce a robust T- and B-cell response across wide and varied HLA subtypes, while acting as true, universal neoantigens. The peptide platform targets these cells by “educating” or specifically activating the immune system to recognize and attack the affected cells. In addition, Vaxil’s mAb platform directly recognizes the target protein expressed on malignant cells and recruits other elements of the immune system to lyse those cells.
