Quest PharmaTech Inc. (Quest) is a publicly traded (TSX Venture), Alberta-based biotechnology company committed to the development and commercialization of oncology product candidates. It is developing a series of products for the treatment of cancer based on its pipeline of SonoLight compounds, and monoclonal antibodies that target certain tumor antigens that are presented in a variety of cancers. Quest believes that by combining these antibodies with other cancer therapies such as chemotherapy or photodynamic therapy, it can potentially further complement and enhance treatment outcomes compared to antibody treatment alone.
The Company's lead product candidate, Oregovomab, an immunotherapeutic product for the treatment of ovarian cancer is currently undergoing a multi-center Phase IIb clinical trial in Italy. This is the first of three carefully planned proof-of-concept clinical trials to establish the superiority of combinatorial immunotherapy either with front-line chemotherapy consisting of carboplatin/paclitaxel in ovarian cancer, gemcitabine in pancreatic cancer, or with the addition of an immunoadjuvant. The Company hopes that successful results from these studies will lead to the design of a definitive product registration study.
