CRYOVAX

CryoVaxTM is an in-situ, personalized, anti-cancer vaccine which combines a percutaneous, image-guided, cryoablation of a selected tumor lesion with the intralesional injection of AlloStim®. The cryoablation kills tumor cells using extreme cold. The freezing of tumors releases endogenous chaperone proteins (a/k/a heat shock proteins) into the surrounding microenvironment as a source of tumor antigen. The intralesional injection of AlloStim® serves as an adjuvant to drive tumor-specific Th1 immunity.
