About CEL-SCI Corporation
CEL-SCI Corporation is developing products that empower immune defenses. Its lead product, Multikine®, is currently being tested in a global Phase III clinical trial that started in December 2010. In Phase II clinical trials Multikine was shown to be safe and well-tolerated and to improve the patients' overall survival by 33 percent at a median of three and a half years following surgery.
CEL-SCI is also developing an immunotherapy (LEAPS-H1N1-DC) to treat H1N1 hospitalized patients and a vaccine (CEL-2000) for Rheumatoid Arthritis using its LEAPS technology platform. The LEAPS-H1N1-DC treatment involves non-changing regions of H1N1 Pandemic Flu, Avian Flu (H5N1), and the Spanish Flu as CEL-SCI scientists are very concerned about the creation of a new more virulent hybrid virus through the combination of H1N1 and Avian Flu, or maybe Spanish Flu. The Company has operations in Vienna, Virginia, and in/near Baltimore, Maryland.
