TapImmune Inc. (TPIV-OTC.BB), a developer of immunotherapeutics for cancer and infectious disease, yesterday provided investors with a corporate update of the Company’s progress during 2010. This year, TapImmune has announced important strategic collaborations with Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation and the Mayo Clinic. As well, the Company expects to start clinical trials in early 2011 of its immunotherapy for HER-2/neu-positive breast cancer patients. In September 2010, TapImmune strengthened its technical and strategic team through the appointments of new individuals, including Dr. Martin Cheever, a scientist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington. Dr. Cheever was recently awarded a $14 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a new Cancer Immunotherapy Trials Network to run clinical trials of the most promising new cancer immunotherapy treatments in development. TapImmune intends to continue enhancing its corporate leadership as well as seeking further beneficial partnerships.
