SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - July 28, 2011) - Data obtained from Entest BioMedical Inc.'s (OTCQB: ENTB) (PINKSHEETS: ENTB) ImenVax™ Safety Study indicates no major side effects or safety issues resulting from treatment. ImenVax™ is Entest's immuno-therapeutic cancer vaccine for the treatment of oral melanoma in dogs. The treatment has been successfully tested for safety on the first two dogs of a ten dog safety study.
Dr. Steve Josephs noted, "Our first dog in the study had no side effects to ImenVax™ or the implantation device. The second dog had minor irritation at the implantation site which was easily treated. This is a very significant step towards having a therapy for use by veterinarians in treating dogs with oral melanoma."
Entest Chairman & CEO David Koos commented, "In both of these dogs there appears strong anecdotal evidence that Entest's immuno-therapeutic cancer vaccine for canines is safe. These initial results give us confidence that once testing is completed on additional dogs the Company will be able to demonstrate more than just anecdotal evidence of ImenVax™ safety in usage. As a person who has two basset hounds potentially at risk for developing cancer in the future, I am excited by our progress to this point. I anticipate Entest making this vaccine available in the future to better the lives of our pets."
