TP022/#1424 A phase I/II study evaluating intraperitoneal GEN-1 in combination with neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients newly diagnosed with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer
Objectives GEN-1, an IL-12 DNA plasmid formulated with a synthetic carrier is being evaluated with neoadjuvant platinum-taxane chemotherapy (NACT) in patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer. OVATION 2 is a multi-center, randomized, open-label phase I/II study evaluating the safety, anti-tumor activity, and immunological response to GEN-1 at a dose of 100 mg/m2 intraperitoneal (IP) actively enrolling at 20 centers in USA and Canada. Methods Up to 130 patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive either NACT plus GEN-1 or NACT alone. The phase I portion will evaluate safety in at least 6 patients administered in 8 weekly infusions starting at cycle 1 week 2 in combination with three 21-day cycles of carboplatin AUC 6 with paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 (PC). Following interval cytoreductive surgery an additional 9 weekly GEN-1 IP infusions starting at cycle 4 week 1 with three 21-day cycles of PC. If no dose limiting toxicities are found, then the study will continue into the phase II portion. To evaluate biological activity a subgroup of patients will have tumor tissue at initial biopsy/laparoscopy collected and at interval cytoreductive surgery. Tissue will be analyzed for the density of CD8, FoxP3, IDO-1, PD-1, and PDL-1 cells. Blood, peritoneal fluid/wash will be collected before and after treatment in a subgroup of patients to quantify for levels of IFN-g. The primary endpoint is PFS. Results Trial in progress: there are no available results at the time of submission. Conclusions Trial in progress: there are no available conclusions at the time of submission.
