Advaxis is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary Lm-based antigen delivery products. These immunotherapies are based on a platform technology that utilizes live attenuated Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) bioengineered to secrete antigen/adjuvant fusion proteins. These Lm-based strains are believed to be a significant advancement in immunotherapy as they integrate multiple functions into a single immunotherapy and are designed to access and direct antigen presenting cells to stimulate anti-tumor T cell immunity, activate the immune system with the equivalent of multiple adjuvants, and simultaneously reduce tumor protection in the tumor microenvironment to enable T cells to eliminate tumors.
Advaxis was over $7 in March of 2019, hitting a low of .25 in September of 2019 after offerings in July.
After announcing an offering earlier this month, the company has stated in their most recent investor presentation that they anticipate having a positive cash balance into early 2021.
Additionally, ADXS-PSA, ADXS-NEO and ADXS-503 all have anticipated catalysts in the first half of 2020 making Advaxis a good company to watch as the year goes on.
