    ADXS11-0011 Lm-LLO is a live attenuated Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) bacterium bioengineered to secrete the HPV-16 E7 protein fused with a truncated fragment of listeriolysin O (tLLO) that preferentially infects antigen-presenting cells. Exposure to ADXS11-001 may stimulate T-cells to target HPV-transformed cells. The objective of this study was to obtain safety and preliminary efficacy data of the combination of ADXS11-001 with mitomycin, FU and intensity modulated radiation

    Annually, more than 500,00 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer globally and at any time, there are approximately 2.5M women living with the disease. Despite the availability of vaccines against HPV which make HPV-related cancers almost entirely preventable, more than 13,000 women in the US alone are diagnosed annually with cervical cancer and 4,200 women will succumb to the disease. The incidence of cervical cancer for Latina women in the United States is highest amongst all racial/ethnic
