NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – ImmunID announced today that it is working with IRX Therapeutics, a clinical-stage cancer immunotherapy developer, to predict response to IRX's investigational drug IRX-2.

Under the terms of the collaboration, ImmunID will use its ImmunTracker technology to assess the immune-modulatory effect of IRX-2 in a randomized phase 2b study of patients with newly diagnosed head and neck squamous cell cancer. The trial is designed to determine whether neoadjuvant treatment with IRX-2 — before an attempt at curative surgery — can reduce the risk of later recurrence.
