OncBioMune Presents Data on Novel Cancer Vaccine ProscaVax at International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference

BATON ROUGE, LA--(Marketwired - October 09, 2015) - OncBioMune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: OBMP) (the "Company"), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of novel cancer products and a proprietary vaccine technology, is pleased to announce that Dr. Jonathan Head presented interim data on the Company's Phase 1 clinical trial of the novel vaccine ProscaVax for prostate cancer.

The Phase 1 trial, expected to be completed in December, is investigating the safety and efficacy of ProscaVax, while evaluating the effects of the vaccine on survivability, time to measurable disease, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level in the blood, and the immune response to ProscaVax. PSA, a protein produced by the prostate gland, is commonly elevated in prostate cancer patients and closely monitored as a measure of disease progression in men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

More information on the trial is available on the clinicaltrials.gov website at: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02058680?term=oncbiomune&rank=1.

The presentation, titled "A Phase 1 clinical trial of a therapeutic prostate cancer vaccine containing PSA/IL-2/GM-CSF in PSA defined biochemical recurrent prostate cancer patients," was at the CRI-CIMT-EATI-AACR: Inaugural International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference: Translating Science Into Survival meeting in New York City on October 16, 2015. The newly released data supports an increase in immunity to the PSA antigen post-vaccine and a decrease in PSA progression rate in patients previously treated with standard therapies with biochemical failure.

"Years of research and clinical data support the safety and benefit of ProscaVax as an immunotherapy in prostate cancer patients," commented Dr. Jonathan Head, Chief Executive Officer at OncBioMune. "This most recent poster lends further validation to our work and the potential for ProscaVax as we prepare to move into a Phase 2 clinical trial."
