Item 7.01   Regulation FD Disclosure.


On November 5, 2019, an abstract (the Abstract) titled Treating Advanced Non-Small Lung Cancer Patients after Checkpoint Inhibitor Treatment Failure with a Novel Combination of Viagenpumatucel-L (HS-110) plus Nivolumab” which had been submitted by Heat Biologics, Inc. (the “Company”) to The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer’s (SITC) in connection with its 34th Annual Meeting was published by SITC. The data presented was obtained from the Company’s ongoing phase 2 study of previously-treated non-small lung cancer patients (NSCLC) of HS-110 in combination with nivolumab (Cohort B). Patients in this cohort have progressed after 4 months of prior treatment with a checkpoint inhibitor. The study evaluates whether the addition of HS-110 to nivolumab may restore responsiveness to treatment after tumor progression on prior checkpoint inhibitor therapy. Cohort B data presented below is based on 56 patients in the intent-to-treat (ITT) population at the time of data cut-off:


·

Response rate by RECIST 1.1

o

Partial response (PR) in 7 patients (13%)

o

Stable disease (SD) in 26 patients (46%)

o

Disease control rate (DCR) was (59%)

·

Median overall survival (OS) was estimated at 11.8 months (95% CI; 6.6 - not reached months) with 39 of the 56 patients censored (70% of patients still alive).

·

Median progression free survival (mPFS) was estimated at 3.2 months (95% CI; 1.9 - 4.0 months) with 17 patients censored.

·

Subset analysis based on Injection Site Reaction (ISR):

o

Patients who experienced an ISR versus those who did not experience ISR:

§

Improved PFS (3.7 vs 1.8 months; HR 0.40, p =0.0068)

§

Improved OS (12 vs 5 months; HR 0.16, p=0.0005)

·

Combination of HS-110 and nivolumab was well tolerated by patients.

o

92% of adverse events (AEs) were mild (Grade 1 or 2).

o

There were only four grade 4 events, and no grade 5 AEs.
