Purpose

This is a phase 1 study to evaluate the safety of intralesional talimogene laherparepvec administration in pediatric subjects with advanced non-CNS tumors that are amenable to direct injection

Detailed Description

      This is a phase 1, multicenter, open-label study of talimogene laherparepvec in pediatric
      subjects with advanced non-CNS tumors that are amenable to direct injection in the clinical
      setting. Approximately 18 -27 treated pediatric subjects are expected to be enrolled into 2
      cohorts stratified by age (permissible based on the incidence of DLTs, a minimum of 6
      subjects/cohort and a minimum of 18 subjects total). DLT will be evaluated based on 6 to 12
      DLT-evaluable subjects in each cohort. The DLT evaluation period is 35 days from the initial
      administration of talimogene laherparepvec.

Talimogene Laherparepvec (TVEC)ExperimentalThe first dose of talimogene laherparepvec will be administered at a dose of up to 4.0 mL of 10ᶺ6 PFU/mL followed by a dose of up to 4.0 mL of 10ᶺ8 PFU/mL 21 days (+3 days) later. Subsequent doses of up to 4.0 mL of 10ᶺ8 PFU/mL will be administered every 14 days (± 3 days) thereafter. Cohorts will be assigned as follows: Cohort A1 (age 12 to <=21 years). Cohort B1 (age 2 to < 12 years). The DLRT will review the safety data of the first 3 subjects in the older age cohort A1 to decide if the younger age cohort B1 can be opened for enrollment. If dose de-escalation is needed and if permissible based on the incidence of DLTs, additional DLT-evaluable subjects will be enrolled and treated at a lower dose level of talimogene laherparepvec. Dose de-escalation cohorts will be assigned as follows and the same DLT rules will be applied: Cohort A2 (age 12 to <=21 years), Cohort B2 (age 2 to < 12 years).
