About VBL

Vascular Biogenics Ltd., operating as VBL Therapeutics, is a late-stage clinical biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of first-in-class treatments for cancer. The company's lead oncology product candidate, VB-111, is a first-in-class, targeted anti-cancer gene-therapy agent that is positioned to treat a wide range of solid tumors. VB-111 is conveniently administered as an IV infusion once every two months. It has demonstrated safety in >170 cancer patients and efficacy signals in an `all comers` Ph1 trial as well as in three tumor-specific Ph2 studies. The mechanism of VB-111 combines blockade of tumor vasculature with an anti-tumor immune response. This mechanism retains activity regardless of baseline tumor mutations or the identity of the pro-angiogenic factors secreted by the tumor. VB-111 is currently being studied in a Ph3 pivotal trial for Recurrent Glioblastoma (rGBM); the trial is being conducted under an FDA Special Protocol Assessment (SPA), fast track and Orphan designation.
