Operational Highlights of the Second Quarter

Update of CVac clinical development program. In November 2013, Prima announced significant updates to its CVac clinical development program based on the progression-free survival data from its CAN-003 trial. In the CAN-003 trial, CVac demonstrated a strong trend of increased progression-free survival in ovarian cancer patients in remission after second line treatment, as compared to those patients who did not receive CVac.

Based on these results, Prima will enroll a new cohort for the CAN-004 trial of 210 epithelial ovarian cancer patients in remission after second-line platinum-based chemotherapy. This trial will be conducted as an amendment to the CAN-004 protocol. The primary endpoint for this study will be Overall Survival (OS); secondary endpoints include progression-free survival (PFS), adverse events, and immune monitoring.

Prima announced, after the end of the reporting quarter in January 2014, that the amended CAN-004 protocol had been approved by the Belgian regulatory agency. The Company anticipates that other countries will soon follow and that recruitment of patients into the amended CAN-004 trial will start on schedule by the second quarter of calendar year 2014.

Prima will also move forward with a 40-patient pilot, multicenter, single-arm trial of CVac for the maintenance treatment of resected pancreatic cancer patients. This trial will assess OS, PFS, adverse events, and immune monitoring.

Neopharm Ltd. license. Prima entered into its first corporate partnership of CVac with Neopharm Group in November 2013. The binding term sheet grants Neopharm an exclusive license to market and sell CVac in Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Presentation of CAN-003 phase 2 trial results at European Cancer Congress. Dr. Jeffrey Goh, one of the lead investigators for CAN-003, presented CAN-003 trial results during the Gynecological Cancer Session of the European Cancer Congress on October 1, 2013 in Amsterdam.

CAN-003 poster presentation at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer annual meeting. Prima's Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Sharron Gargosky delivered a poster presentation on November 8, 2013 entitled, "Study of Autologous Dendritic Cell Therapy Targeting Mucin 1 as a Treatment for the Maintenance of Ovarian Cancer Patients in Remission" in National Harbor, MD at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer 28th annual meeting.

Expert panel discussion of CVac clinical trial. An expert panel discussion moderated by Jason Kolbert, Senior Biotechnology Analyst at Maxim Group, entitled "Ovarian Cancer: Next Generation Immunotherapies" was held in December 2013. The CVac data and Prima's development plans were discussed by clinical experts in the field.
