Genelux Initiates Two Clinical Trials of GL-ONC1 in Ovarian Cancer and Solid Organ Cancers with Leading Oncology Institutions
Jul 28 16
Genelux Corporation announced that it has initiated two new Phase 1b clinical trials of its lead oncolytic virotherapy GL-ONC1 with leading oncology institutions, Florida Hospital Cancer Institute (FHCI) in Orlando and Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health. The initiation of these two trials with is a significant milestone in the clinical advancement of GL-ONC1 and will provide Genelux with significant near-term data milestones. Following positive results in four completed clinical trials including the two Phase 1 trials in head and neck cancer and mesothelioma presented at the 2015 ASCO Annual Meeting, which confirmed the safety and favorable trend of clinical benefits of GL-ONC1 administered either intravenously (IV) or intrapleurally. A Genelux-sponsored dose-escalation clinical trial of GL-ONC1 (NCT02759588) is being conducted at Florida Hospital Cancer Institute and is being led by Dr. Robert Holloway, a world-renowned gynecologic oncologist, to evaluate the safety, tolerability and antitumor effect of GL-ONC1 in female patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. The first two patients have been dosed, with the second patient dosed this week and, to date, both show the treatment was well-tolerated. GL-ONC1 is administered intraperitoneally at high doses over a condensed schedule. Additionally, a Phase 2a expansion portion of the study is anticipated following interim data analysis. In subsequent stages of the trial, GL-ONC1 will be administered as combination therapy to further augment the clinical effect. Furthermore, Genelux expects that the results of this trial will establish the optimal parameters to propose a Phase 2 clinical trial design focusing on the registration pathway in ovarian cancer. An investigator-initiated dose-escalation clinical trial (NCT02714374) is being conducted at Moores Cancer Center and led by Dr. Kaitlyn Kelly, a surgical oncologist trained at the prestigious Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), to evaluate the safety and efficacy of GL-ONC1 alone or in combination with eculizumab (marketed as Soliris®) prior to surgery in patients with advanced solid organ cancers. The study is designed to answer fundamental questions regarding the optimal systemic administration of GL-ONC1. GL-ONC1 is administered intravenously in the form of an aggressive dosing regimen. The first three patients have been dosed and have shown the treatment to be well-tolerated. Genelux anticipates the results of this trial will inform dosing parameters to further augment the anti-tumor activity of GL-ONC1 virotherapy, particularly in targeting dispersed and difficult-to-treat metastatic diseases, which would provide an important clinical advantage over other virotherapies. A Phase 2a expansion portion of the study is anticipated following interim data analysis.
