PROSPECTUS
 
CEL-SCI CORPORATION
Common Stock
 
By means of this prospectus:
 
a number of our warrant holders are offering to sell up to 563,792 shares of our common stock which are issuable upon the exercise of our outstanding warrants and
 
a shareholder is offering 50,000 shares of common stock which we issued in payment of amounts we owe to the shareholder for services provided in connection with our Phase III clinical trial.
 
On May 26, 2020, we lowered the exercise price of our Series V warrants to $13.75 per share and extended the expiration date of the warrants to June 25, 2020. The Series V warrants were originally issued as part of a financing on May 28, 2015. For each Series V warrant exercised on or before June 10, 2020 the former holder of the Series V warrant received one Series XX warrant. Every Series XX warrant will allow the holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $18.00 per share at any time on or before September 10, 2020. As of June 10, 2020, 461,953 Series V warrants had been exercised entitling the former holders of the Series V warrants to 461,953 Series XX warrants. For each Series V warrant exercised after June 10, 2020 but on or before June 25, 2020 the former holder of the Series V warrant received one Series YY warrant. Every two Series YY warrants will allow the holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $20.00 per share at any time on or before September 25, 2020. As of June 25, 2020, 203,678 Series V warrants had been exercised entitling the former holders of the Series V warrants to 101,839 Series YY warrants.
 
We have agreed to pay Dawson James Securities, Inc. 3.5% of the amount received from the exercise of each Series V warrant.
 
The warrant holders are sometimes referred to in this prospectus as the “selling shareholders”.
 
Although we will receive proceeds if any of the warrants are exercised, we will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the common stock by the selling shareholders. We will pay for the expenses of this offering which are estimated to be $30,000.
 
Our common stock is traded on the NYSE American under the symbol CVM. On June 30, 2020, the closing price for our common stock was $14.92.
 
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of this prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.
 
THESE SECURITIES ARE SPECULATIVE AND INVOLVE A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK. FOR A DESCRIPTION OF CERTAIN IMPORTANT FACTORS THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED BY PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS, SEE "RISK FACTORS" BEGINNING ON PAGE 13 OF OUR 2019 ANNUAL REPORT ON FORM 10-K/A WHICH IS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE.

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY
 
This summary highlights certain information about us, this offering and information appearing elsewhere in this prospectus and in the documents we incorporate by reference. This summary is not complete and does not contain all of the information that you should consider before investing in our securities. To fully understand this offering and its consequences to you should read this entire prospectus carefully, including the documents incorporated by reference, in this prospectus before making an investment decision.
 
Our Company
We are dedicated to research and development directed at improving the treatment of cancer and other diseases by using the immune system, the body’s natural defense system. We are currently focused on the development of the following product candidates and technologies:
 
1)
Multikine® (Leukocyte Interleukin, Injection), or Multikine, an investigational immunotherapy under development for the potential treatment of certain head and neck cancers;
 
2)
L.E.A.P.S. (Ligand Epitope Antigen Presentation System) technology, or LEAPS, with two investigational therapies, CEL-2000 and CEL-4000, vaccine product candidates under development for the potential treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, LEAPS-H1N1-DC, a product candidate under development for the potential treatment of pandemic influenza in hospitalized patients, and LEAPS COVID-19 vaccine product candidate under development to potentially treat/prevent COVID-19 coronavirus.
 
             We were formed as a Colorado corporation in 1983. Our principal office is located at 8229 Boone Boulevard, Suite 802, Vienna, Virginia 22182. Our telephone number is 703-506-9460 and our web site is www.cel-sci.com. Except for the information incorporated by reference, the information contained in, and that which can be accessed through, our website is not incorporated into and does not form a part of this prospectus.
 
Our common stock is publicly traded on the NYSE American under the symbol “CVM”. The high and low closing prices of our common stock, as reported by the NYSE American, during the three months ended June 30, 2020 were $18.00 and $9.64, respectively.
 
As of June 30, 2020, we had 38,522,236 outstanding shares of common stock. This number excludes 13,410,561 shares that may be issued upon the exercise of outstanding warrants and options with a weighted average exercise price of $7.34 per share.
 
Recent Developments
 
We announced on April 23, 2020 that the Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) for our Phase 3 clinical trial of Multikine had completed its most recent review of the Phase 3 study data, which it performs periodically at regular intervals as required by our study protocol. The data from all 928 enrolled patients were provided to the IDMC by the clinical research organization (CRO) responsible for data management of this Phase 3 study.
 
The IDMC recommended that we continue the trial until the appropriate number of events have occurred.
 
IDMCs are committees commonly used by sponsors of clinical trials to protect the interests of the patients and the integrity of the study data in ongoing trials, especially when the trials involve patients with life threatening diseases, and when, as in cancer clinical trials, they extend over long periods of time. The continuation of our Phase 3 trial could be the result of factors other than Multikine and may not be indicative of a potential positive outcome for the trial.
 
On May 4, 2020 we announced that our pivotal Phase 3 head and neck cancer study of Multikine (Leukocyte Interleukin, Inj.) immunotherapy had reached the targeted threshold of 298 events (deaths) required to conduct the data evaluation. We are now in the phase that involves database lock and final analysis of the trial results. Given that the CROs, not CEL-SCI, are running these activities and the uncertainties surrounding COVID 19 and its effect on travel and hospitals, we cannot give a reliable timeline. We will continue to remain blinded to the study results throughout this process. We will be advised of the results when the analysis is completed and the study results will be announced to the public at that time.

RISK FACTORS
 
In addition to risks disclosed in the documents we incorporate by reference, potential investors should be aware of the following additional risks.
 
Risks Related to our Business
 
 We face business disruption and related risks resulting from the recent pandemic of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), which could have a material adverse effect on our business plan.
 
The development of our product candidates could be disrupted and materially adversely affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19. As a result of measures imposed by the governments in affected regions, businesses and schools have been suspended due to quarantines intended to contain this outbreak. The spread of SARS CoV-2 from China to other countries has resulted in the Director General of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11, 2020. International stock markets have reflected the uncertainty associated with the slow-down in the world economies. The significant declines in the Dow Industrial Average were largely attributed to the effects of COVID-19. We are still assessing our business plans and the impact COVID-19 may have on our ability to conduct our preclinical studies and clinical trials, but there can be no assurance that this analysis will enable us to avoid part or all of any impact from the spread of COVID-019 or its consequences, including downturns in business sentiment generally. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic and global efforts to contain its spread will impact our operations will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time, and include the duration, severity and scope of the pandemic and the actions taken to contain or treat the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Risks Related to this Offering
 
A provision in our Bylaws regarding shareholder claims may not be enforceable.
 
Article X of our bylaws provides that stockholder claims brought against us, or our officers or directors, including any derivative claim or claim purportedly filed on our behalf, must be brought in the U.S. District Court for the district of Delaware.
 
Although it is our intent that this provision applies to actions arising under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 there is uncertainty as to whether a court would enforce this provision since Section 22 of the Securities Act creates concurrent jurisdiction for federal and state courts over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act or the rules and regulations under the Securities Act.
 
In addition, since this provision in our bylaws applies to state law claims there is uncertainty as to whether any court would enforce this provision.
 
DILUTION
 
As of March 31, 2020, we had a net tangible book value of $0.32 per share. An investor purchasing shares in this offering will suffer dilution equal in amount to the difference between the price paid for the shares and our net tangible book value at the time of purchase.
 
DESCRIPTION OF COMMON STOCK
 
We are authorized to issue 600,000,000 shares of common stock. Holders of our common stock are each entitled to cast one vote for each share held of record on all matters presented to the shareholders. Cumulative voting is not allowed; hence, the holders of a majority of our outstanding common shares can elect all directors.
 
Holders of our common stock are entitled to receive such dividends as may be declared by our Board of Directors out of funds legally available and, in the event of liquidation, to share pro rata in any distribution of our assets after payment of liabilities. Our Board of Directors is not obligated to declare a dividend. It is not anticipated that dividends will be paid in the foreseeable future.
 
 
7
 
 
Holders of our common stock do not have preemptive rights to subscribe to additional shares if issued. There are no conversion, redemption, sinking fund or similar provisions regarding the common stock. All outstanding shares of common stock are fully paid and non-assessable.
 
Article X of our bylaws provides that stockholder claims brought against us, or our officers or directors, including any derivative claim or claim purportedly filed on our behalf, must be brought in the U.S. District Court for the district of Delaware.
 
Although it is our intent that this provision applies to actions arising under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 there is uncertainty as to whether a court would enforce this provision since Section 22 of the Securities Act creates concurrent jurisdiction for federal and state courts over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act or the rules and regulations under the Securities Act.
 
In addition, since this provision in our bylaws applies to state law claims there is uncertainty as to whether any court would enforce this provision.
 
SELLING SHAREHOLDERS
 
On May 26, 2020, we lowered the exercise price of our Series V warrants to $13.75 per share and extended the expiration date of the warrants to June 25, 2020. The Series V warrants were originally issued as part of a financing on May 28, 2015. For each Series V warrant exercised on or before June 10, 2020 the former holder of the Series V warrant received one Series XX warrant. Every Series XX warrant will allow the holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $18.00 per share at any time on or before September 10, 2020. As of June 10, 2020, 461,953 Series V warrants had been exercised entitling the former holders of the Series V warrants to 461,953 Series XX warrants. For each Series V warrant exercised after June 10, 2020 but on or before June 25, 2020 the former holder of the Series V warrant received one Series YY warrant. Every two Series YY warrants will allow the holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $20.00 per share at any time on or before September 25, 2020. As of June 25, 2020, 203,678 Series V warrants had been exercised entitling the former holders of the Series V warrants to 101,839 Series YY warrants.
 
We have agreed to pay Dawson James Securities, Inc. 3.5% of the amount received from the exercise of each Series V warrant. 
 
We have issued 50,000 shares of our common stock to Ergomed plc in payment of services provided by Ergomed in connection with our Phase III clinical trial. Ergomed has the option to sell these 50,000 shares by means of this prospectus.
 
The warrant holders and Ergomed are sometimes referred to in this prospectus as the “selling shareholders”.
 
We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the securities by the selling shareholders. We will pay all costs of registering the securities offered by the selling shareholders. These costs, based upon the time related to preparing this section of the prospectus, are estimated to be $2,000. The selling shareholders will pay all sales commissions and other costs of the sale of their shares.

Dawson James Securities, Inc. is a securities broker. R. Douglas Armstrong and Robert D. Keyser are affiliates of Dawson James Securities. Auxol Capital is controlled by Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Keyser. 
 
The shares of common stock may be sold by the selling shareholders by one or more of the following methods, without limitation:
 
a block trade in which a broker or dealer so engaged will attempt to sell the securities as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;
 
purchases by a broker or dealer as principal and resale by such broker or dealer for its account pursuant to this prospectus;
 
ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker solicits purchasers; and
 
face-to-face transactions between sellers and purchasers without a broker/dealer.
 
In completing sales, brokers or dealers engaged by the selling shareholders may arrange for other brokers or dealers to participate. Brokers or dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the selling shareholders in amounts to be negotiated. As to any particular broker-dealer, this compensation might be in excess of customary commissions. Neither we nor the selling shareholders can presently estimate the amount of such compensation. Notwithstanding the above, no FINRA member will charge commissions that exceed 8% of the total proceeds from the sale.
 
The selling shareholders and any broker/dealers who act in connection with the sale of its securities may be deemed to be "underwriters" within the meaning of §2(11) of the Securities Acts of 1933, and any commissions received by them and any profit on any resale of the securities as principal might be deemed to be underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act.
 
 
12
 
 
If the selling shareholder enters into an agreement to sell its securities to a broker-dealer as principal, and the broker-dealer is acting as an underwriter, we will file a post-effective amendment to the registration statement, of which this prospectus is a part, identifying the broker-dealer, providing required information concerning the plan of distribution, and otherwise revising the disclosures in this prospectus as needed. We will also file the agreement between the selling shareholder and the broker-dealer as an exhibit to the post-effective amendment to the registration statement.
 
The selling shareholders may also sell their shares pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933.
 
We have advised the selling shareholders that they, and any securities broker/dealers or others who sell the common stock on behalf of the selling shareholders, may be deemed to be statutory underwriters and will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements under the Securities Act of 1933. We have also advised the selling shareholders that, in the event of a "distribution" of the securities owned by the selling shareholders, the selling shareholders, any "affiliated purchasers", and any broker/dealer or other person who participates in the distribution may be subject to Rule 102 of Regulation M under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("1934 Act") until their participation in that distribution is completed. Rule 102 makes it unlawful for any person who is participating in a distribution to bid for or purchase securities of the same class as is the subject of the distribution. A "distribution" is defined in Rule 102 as an offering of securities "that is distinguished from ordinary trading transactions by the magnitude of the offering and the presence of special selling efforts and selling methods". We have also advised the selling shareholders that Rule 101 of Regulation M under the 1934 Act prohibits any "stabilizing bid" or "stabilizing purchase" for the purpose of pegging, fixing or stabilizing the price of our common stock in connection with this offering.

Item 17.   Undertakings
 
The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:
 
(1)
To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
 
(i)
To include any prospectus required by Section l0 (a)(3) of the Securities Act:
 
(ii)
To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events which, individually or together, represent a fundamental change in the information in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and
 
 
23
 
 
(iii)
To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement.
 
(2)
That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
 
(3)
To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities that remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
 
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of l933 (the “Act”) may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question of whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
 
(4)
That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser:
 
(i)
If the registrant is relying on Rule 430B:
 
(A)
Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and
 
(B)
Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii), or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by section 10(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which that prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date; or
 
(ii)
If the registrant is subject to Rule 430C, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.
 
 
24
 
 
(5)
That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities:
 
The undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:
 
(i)
Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;
 
(ii)
Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;
 
(iii)
The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

(iv)
Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.
 
 
25
 
 
SIGNATURES
 
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of l933, the registrant has duly caused this registration statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the Vienna, Virginia on the 2nd day of July 2020.
