Greenwich LifeSciences is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of GP2, an immunotherapy to prevent breast cancer recurrences in patients who have previously undergone surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or “over-expressor”) levels.

One in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over her lifetime, with approximately 266,000 new breast cancer patients and 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in 2018. Following breast cancer surgery in the adjuvant setting, a HER2/neu 3+ patient typically receives Herceptin® in the first year, with the hope that their breast cancer will not recur, and with the odds of recurrence slowly decreasing over the first 5 years after surgery. Herceptin® has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 25% to 12% in the adjuvant setting. In the neoadjuvant setting, a patient receives treatment before surgery and based on the results of a biopsy at surgery, will receive the same or more potent treatment after surgery. Kadcyla® has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 22% to 11% in the neoadjuvant setting. Accordingly, we believe that GP2 may be used to address the 50% of recurring patients who do not respond to either Herceptin® or Kadcyla®.
In a prospective, randomized, single-blinded, placebo-controlled, multi-center (16 sites) Phase IIb clinical trial led by MD Anderson, no recurrences were observed in the HER2/neu 3+ adjuvant setting after median 5 years of follow-up, if the patient received the 6 primary intradermal injections over the first 6 months (p =0.0338). Furthermore, the GP2 immunotherapy elicited a potent immune response measured by local skin tests and immunological assays. Of the 138 patients that have been treated with GP2 to date over 4 clinical trials, GP2 immunotherapy was well tolerated, and no serious adverse events were reported related to the GP2 immunotherapy.
- No cancer recurrences if fully immunized
- No reported serious adverse events
- A well tolerated safety profile
