About ADXS-HPV Immunotherapy
ADXS-HPV is a live attenuated Listeria monocytogenes (Lm)-LLO immunotherapy that has been developed to treat HPV-associated cancers. ADXS-HPV has been bioengineered to secrete an antigen-adjuvant fusion (tLLO-E7) protein consisting of a truncated fragment of listeriolysin O (tLLO) fused to HPV16-E7. The proposed mechanism of action is that the Lm vector serves as its own adjuvant and stimulates strong innate and adaptive immune responses to specifically target tumor dysplastic cells by recognizing tumor associated antigen (HPV 16-E7).
