3 Disruptive Validated Technology Cancer Stem Cell TargetingPotent Immunotherapy 3 = Effective Cancer Eradication +

4 Why Cancer Vaccines Previously Failed? Problem Late-stage disease Immune compromised patients Weak immune response Solution Minimal residual disease Immune competent patients at diagnosis Dendritic cells with persistent T- cell immune response 4 Target multiple antigens Overall survival endpoint Target cancer stem cells Tumor mutation/escape Flawed trial endpoints Targeted tumor bulk

5 Without killing CSCs, it is like spraying for weeds without killing the roots. The weeds (tumors) come back.

6 Immunotherapy Has Advantages in Targeting Cancer Stem Cells 6 Cancer cellCytotoxic T-cell Cytotoxic T-cells target CSC antigens cancer presented by MHCs Antigen MHC Immunotherapy can elicit T-cell mediated rejection of tumors T cells are the way the body kills cancer cells Improves specificity Targets intracellular & surface antigens Better safety profile Differentiates between CSCs and normal stem cells Antibodies only target CSC antigens on the surface of cancer cells Cancer cell Antibody Antigen

23 ICT-140: Ovarian Cancer Vaccine Ovarian cancer is similar to GBM  Minimal residual disease after surgery  Immuno-responsive Dendritic cell vaccine targeting CSCs  Seven antigens over-expressed in ovarian cancer, including three antigens used in ICT-107 ̶ HER2/neu, IL-13Rα2, MAGE1, mesothelin, EphA2, & two more antigens  File IND by Q4/

24 ICT-121: CSC-targeted Universal Vaccine Dendritic cell vaccine loaded with two CD133 peptides CD133 is highly expressed on CSCs CD133 is expressed on most solid tumors, including brain, colon, non-small cell lung, melanoma, pancreatic, and breast cancer Initial indication in recurrent GBM PI-sponsored Phase I trial at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center  20 patients  IND approved; plan enrollment Q4/

25 Inverse Correlation between CD133 Expression with Survival on Gliomas Source: Rebetz et al. PLoS ONE CD133 expression correlates inversely with grade II to IV glioma patient survival time. The survival time calculated from the day of operation was plotted against the percentage of CD133+ cells in the CD45-cell fraction from the specimens of each patient. UD: undetectable CD133 expression. Bold black bars indicate the median survival time for patients in groups with CD133+ cells either lower or higher than 30% of total CD45-cells.
