IMUNON is a fully integrated clinical-stage biotechnology company dedicated to advancing a portfolio of innovative treatments that harness the body’s natural mechanisms to generate safe, effective and durable responses to broad range of human diseases, constituting a differentiating approach from traditional therapies.

IMUNON has two technology platforms: the TheraPlas modality for the development of immunotherapies and other anti-cancer nucleic acid-based therapies, and the PLACCINE modality for the development of nucleic acid vaccines for infectious diseases and cancer. The company’s lead clinical program, IMNN-001, is a DNA-based immunotherapy for the localized treatment of advanced ovarian cancer currently in Phase 2 development. IMNN-001 works by teaching the body to produce safe and stable levels of powerful cancer-fighting molecules, such as interleukin-12 and interferon gamma, at the site of the tumor. Additionally, the company is conducting preclinical proof-of-concept studies on a nucleic acid vaccine candidate targeting the SARS-CoV-2 virus to validate its PLACCINE platform. IMUNON’s platform technologies are based on the delivery of nucleic acids with new synthetic delivery systems that are independent of viral vectors or devices. IMUNON will continue to leverage these platforms and advance the technological frontier of nucleic acid-based products to better serve patients with difficult-to-treat conditions.
