CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Genocea Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:GNCA), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing T cell-enabled vaccines and immunotherapies, today announced positive top-line 12-month follow-up data from a Phase 1/2a study of GEN-003, the Company’s immunotherapy candidate against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). At 12 months after the final dose, in an analysis of an exploratory endpoint, the mean reduction in genital lesion rate was 42 percent below baseline for the best-performing 30 microgram dose group, indicating that GEN-003 may continue to provide a durable effect on genital lesions beyond the six months previously reported. GEN-003 remained safe and well tolerated. Genocea intends to explore additional dose combinations in its upcoming Phase 2 dose optimization study, which may identify a dose which further improves the magnitude or durability of effect of GEN-003.
