This is an open-label study of Study WRI-GEV-007, which evaluates SV-BR-1-GM in metastatic or
locally recurrent breast cancer patients, in combination with the PD-1 inhibitor INCMGA00012
and the IDO inhibitor epacadostat. Patients who with advanced breast cancer who have failed
prior therapies will be eligible to enroll in this study. The study will evaluate SV-BR-1-GM
in combination with INCMGA00012 and epacadostat. Treatment cycles will be every 3 weeks with
evaluations for tumor progression or response every 6-12 weeks.
This is an open-label, single arm study of the SV-BR-1-GM regimen in combination with
INCMGA00012 and epacadostat in patients with metastatic or locally recurrent breast cancer
who have failed at least two lines of therapy.
Patients will receive the SV-BR-1-GM regimen with combination immunotherapy. There will be an
initial evaluation of the combination of the SV-BR-1-GM regimen with INCMGA00012 every 3
weeks. If this is found to be safe and well tolerated in a cohort of at least 6 patients
(dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) in less than 30% of the patients evaluated), then a triple
combination of the SV-BR-1-GM regimen with INCMGA00012 and epacadostat will be evaluated in a
cohort of 6 patients. If the DLT rate remains below 30%, additional higher dose levels of
epacadostat will be explored. Once a dose of epacadostat has been determined that is safe and
reliably normalizes plasma kynurenine levels, the study will expand to treat an additional 36
patients. If DLTs are seen in 30% or more of patients, the dose of epacadostat will be
further reduced and an additional cohort of 6 patients evaluated in a stepwise fashion until
a safe dose level is determined. Once the recommended phase II dose is determined, the study
will expand to treat an additional 36 patients.
The SV-BR-1-GM regimen consists of:
1. Pre- SV-BR-1-GM cyclophosphamide 2-3 days prior to SV-BR-1-GM inoculation
2. SV-BR-1-GM inoculation
3. Interferon-alpha-2b - at the inoculation sites 2 (±1 day) post-SV-BR-1-GM
4. Interferon-alpha-2b - at the inoculation sites 4 (±1 day) post-SV-BR-1-GM
The SV-BR-1-GM regimen will be administered with the following combination immunotherapy
1. Combination therapy with INCMGA00012 (anti-PD-1)
2. Combination therapy with epacadostat (IDO inhibitor)
The SV-BR-1-GM regimen with INCMGA00012 will be administered every 21 days (± 3 days), except
when approved by the Investigator in consultation with the medical monitor. Epacadostat will
be dosed twice daily and will continue through each cycle. Note that hormonal therapy (e.g.,
aromatase inhibitors) is permitted if ongoing, but may be added while the patient is on this
study only with the medical monitor's approval (e.g. for hormone receptor positive patients
who are deriving clinical benefit but have not achieved a CR after >6 cycles of therapy).
