John Theurer Cancer Center Joins Study Exploring Novel Delivery of Cancer-Selective Gene Therapy to Treat Brain Cancer

Physicians at the John Theurer Cancer Center (JTCC) at Hackensack University Medical Center announced their involvement in a promising multicenter Phase 1 study assessing the safety and tolerability of Toca 511 in patients with glioblastoma, the most common and lethal form of brain cancer. Toca 511 is a retroviral replicating vector that has been engineered to deliver a therapeutic gene selectively to brain tumor cells while sparing healthy brain tissue. In this study, sponsored by Tocagen Inc., Toca 511 is injected directly into the brain tumor through a stereotactic biopsy needle. Once injected, Toca 511 infects tumor cells, sparing healthy functioning brain cells. During the following weeks, patients are then given cycles of an oral medication, 5-flucytosine (5-FC), an antifungal drug that readily enters the brain. The infected tumor cells now carry genetic instructions for an enzyme that converts 5-FC into 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), a highly-potent chemotherapy that destroys cancer cells, which may lead to activation of the immune system against the tumor. Currently ongoing, the study will enroll up to 50 patients with glioblastoma and other aggressive high-grade gliomas (Grade 3 or 4) who have already undergone surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Among the estimated 13,000 new cases of high-grade glioma each year in the United States, glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive, with only 5% of patients surviving to five years after diagnosis.
