A Phase 1 Open Label Trial of Intravenous Administration of MVA-BN-Brachyury Vaccine in Patients With Advanced Cancer

NCT04134312

Description:

A Phase 1 open label trial of intravenous administration of MVA-BN-Brachyury vaccine in patients with advanced cancer. Patients with metastatic or unresectable locally advanced malignant solid tumors will be enrolled and treated according to a 3+3 dose escalation scheme. Up to 3 dose levels will be explored. Patients will receive MVA-BN-Brachyury every three weeks, three administrations in total. Patients will be hospitalized after each vaccination, over 48 hours. Trial duration will be approximately 24 weeks per patient including 3 months after the last vaccination follow up (FU) period.

          7. Patients must have normal organ and bone marrow function as defined below:

             Renal function:

                  (CrCl) ≥ 40 mL/min (if using the Cockcroft-Gault formula below):

             weeks prior to the first planned dose of MVA-BN-Brachyury vaccine, with the following
             exceptions, assuming any toxicity related to these therapies is well controlled or
             resolved and the patient has been on that therapy for at least 8 weeks at the time of
             enrollment:

               -  Immunosuppressive therapy for post-organ transplant.

               -  Chronic administration (defined as > 5 consecutive days of > 15 mg of prednisone

             limit compliance with trial requirements.

         12. Pregnant or breastfeeding women.

         13. Any other condition, which in the opinion of the Investigator, would indicate the
             subject is a poor candidate for treatment with MVA-BN-Brachyury vaccine or would
             interfere with the evaluation of the trial endpoints.
