Disrupting cancer through SurVaxM immunotherapy

At MimiVax, our mission is to disrupt cancer. We are dedicated to improving survival and sending hope to cancer patients

News and Events

The current study found that 51% of nGBM patients receiving SurVaxM had survived at least 2 years and 41% had survived 3 years, considerably higher rates than has been seen historically from standard care.

MimiVax is pleased to announce the published manuscript of the now completed Phase 2A study of SurVaxM, a cancer vaccine, in newly diagnosed glioblastoma (nGBM) in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, authored by researchers from several prominent US cancer centers. 
A follow-up Randomized, Blinded Placebo-Controlled Phase 2B Clinical trial of SurVaxM for nGBM (SURVIVE) [NCT05163080] is now recruiting at 10 cancer centers
across the USA.

First center to treat newly diagnosed glioblastoma patients as part of late-stage trial with SurVaxM

“For years, we’ve struggled to move the needle as far as good treatment options for glioblastoma. Our hope is that SurVaxM will offer patients both longer survival and better quality of life,” says Dr. Abad, who is also an Assistant Professor of Oncology at Roswell Park. “To hopefully be on the precipice of meaningful progress against glioblastoma and to be able to possibly see my patients outside of the hospital — years after their diagnosis — would be incredible.”

Mimivax looks for game-changer in GBM as SurVaxM shows signal at interim look

In the ongoing study, survival trends strengthened as the data have matured. With the phase II in nGBM so far achieving a survival rate that exceeds the historical standard of care by 40 percent, the study already met its six-month PFS endpoint.

Our vision, to disrupt cancer with the development of highly innovative immunotherapies aimed at increasing patient survival rates


MimiVax is improving outcomes and quality of life for those suffering from devastating diseases as well as strengthening the biomedical startup ecosystem of Buffalo, New York.


We’re exploring new ways of stimulating the immune system to fight cancer cells leveraging our proprietary survivin-targeting technology.

Clinical Trials

SurVaxM is presently being studied in glioblastoma (newly diagnosed and recurrent), multiple myeloma and neuroendocrine tumors (NET). 


To disrupt cancer with innovative immunotherapies

SurVaxM is currently being evaluated in: a Phase 2b clinical trial in adults with newly diagnosed glioblastoma; a Phase I clinical trial in combination with REVLIMID® (lenalidomide) for adults with multiple myeloma; and a Phase I clinical trial for metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET).
