About ISA Pharmaceuticals

ISA Pharmaceuticals B.V. is a biopharmaceutical company developing rationally designed, fully synthetic therapeutic vaccines against cancer and persistent viral infections. The company´s proprietary synthetic long peptide (SLP®) and AMPLIVANT™ platform permits the generation of safe and effective vaccines with a known mechanism of action. SLP® vaccines are broadly applicable to multiple targets and ideally suited as monotherapy or as essential components in combination with conventional cancer treatments.

Two SLP® vaccines are currently in clinical development: ISA101 is targeting human papillomavirus (HPV) induced diseases and ISA102 is targeting p53-overexpressing tumors. Clinical proof-of-concept has been established with ISA101 in Vulvar Intraepithelial Neoplasia (VIN), a pre-cancerous disease caused by HPV.

The company was founded in 2004 by Aglaia Oncology Fund and is based in Leiden, The Netherlands. For more information, please visit www.isa-pharma.com
