SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Prima BioMed Ltd (ASX: PRR) (NASDAQ: PBMD) (ISIN: US74154B2034) ("Prima," the "Company") today released interim immune monitoring data from its ongoing CAN-003 clinical trial of CVac to treat epithelial ovarian cancer patients in remission after first-line or second line therapy.
The interim data demonstrate the positive effects of CVac treatment on the immune system.
The Company has completed intracellular cytokine staining ("ICS") analysis of seven patients from the CAN-003 trial -- five patients from the CVac group and two patients from the control group, who did not receive any cancer treatment during the study.
As compared to the control group, the CVac patients demonstrated much higher T cell activity throughout the testing period. ICS testing also indicates that the T cell response is specific to mucin 1, the antigen marker present on most ovarian cancer cells.
Prof. Ian Frazer, the chairman of Prima's scientific advisory board commented: "There is clear evidence of a cellular response to mucin 1 induced by CVac treatment. We look forward to further analysis of all patients on the CAN-003 study to see if these early trends are confirmed."
Matthew Lehman, Prima's CEO, stated: "We are encouraged by the interim trends we have seen in the CAN-003 data released to date. CVac has a very favourable side effect profile, the clinical data in terms of progression free survival are trending in the right direction, and the early ICS data support our hypothesis of how the product should work in a patient's body."
ICS is a laboratory technique used to evaluate if CVac has induced a desired mucin 1 specific T cell response in patients treated with CVac. The ICS results help confirm the biological activity of CVac.
Prima will make a presentation of the CAN-003 interim data via a conference call and webcast on Thursday November 15th at 9:00am (Sydney local time).

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
