NW Bio To Discuss Projected Schedule For Data Lock, Unblinding and Top Line Data From Its Phase 3 Clinical Trial At Annual Shareholder Meeting
They expect to release the results of their DCVAX trial around June / July. DCVAX is a custom made vaccine which uses a patient's tumor tissue. The tumor sample has to be fresh or stored in a special way. See http://virtualtrials.com/pdf2018/dcvaxfreeze.pdf. If you are going to have a surgery it might be a good idea to store the tumor sample so if DCVAX is a success and gets approved, you can then have the vaccine made. There are companies like https://storemytumor.com/ that can freez and store it for you.
My thoughts are that this vaccine will show a big improvement in overall survival, but so will their control group, most of whom also had the vaccine.
