PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- INOVIO (NASDAQ:INO), a biotechnology company focused on rapidly bringing to market precisely designed DNA medicines to protect and treat people from infectious diseases, cancer, and diseases associated with HPV, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. INOVIO's management will host a live conference call and webcast at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time today to discuss financial results and provide a general business update, including the company's development of INO-4800, one of the leading COVID-19 vaccine candidates currently in U.S. Phase 1 clinical trials.
INOVIO's President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. J. Joseph Kim said, "INOVIO had a very productive first quarter, laying the foundation for a transformative year for the company. Our recent and ongoing clinical developments across all of our programs continue to demonstrate the differentiating value and broad applicability of our DNA medicines platform. When the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in early January, INOVIO was able to leverage its DNA medicines platform and early funding from CEPI to be one of the first companies to advance a vaccine candidate for COVID-19 into a Phase 1 clinical trial. INOVIO's dedicated team of vaccine developers was able to quickly build and expand a global coalition of collaborators, partners, manufacturers, and funders to advance the INO-4800 program.
"Most importantly, while safely conducting global clinical trials during this COVID pandemic has been a significant challenge, INOVIO is on track to deliver key 2020 clinical and regulatory milestones including the planned reporting of REVEAL 1 Phase 3 top-line efficacy data for VGX-3100 in Q4 and the presentation of 12-month overall survival results from the Phase 1/2 clinical trial of INO-5401 immunotherapy in a very hard to treat cancer in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) at the ASCO20 Virtual Conference later this month."
