VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The following letter is being released by CEL-SCI Corporation (NYSE MKT: CVM) to its shareholders: Dear Fellow Shareholders: As you know, we are currently running the largest ever Phase III clinical trial in head and neck cancer, a disease with a clear unmet medical need, with our investigational Multikine* immunotherapy. The trial is currently being conducted in eight countries on three continents. It is designed so that if successfully completed the results will allow us to seek marketing approval in the key markets around the world. Our clinical study is the first trial in which immunotherapy is given before the standard of care (SOC) cancer therapies which consists of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Multikine is given prior to SOC because we believe that the stimulation of the immune system of a cancer patient after those cancer treatments is extremely difficult due to the known immuno-suppressive effects of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. We are confident that our approach of early stimulation of the immune response will be proven to be correct.
