Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 6-months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
To assess the efficacy of TVI-Brain-1 using progression-free survival at 6-months as a surrogate for overall survival. Determining the effect of TVI-Brain-1 on overall survival is the study's most important secondary endpoint.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 36-months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All patients will be followed until death to measure overall survival.
  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: 36-months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patient quality of life will be assessed throughout the study.
  • Toxicity [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Toxicity will be assessed throughout the study by recording clinical symptoms, performing physical examinations, measuring vital signs and performing clinical laboratory tests, including complete blood counts and differentials, blood chemistries and autoimmune profiles.
  • Time to progression [ Time Frame: 36-months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time-to-progression will be assessed for all patients.
  • Objective response rate [ Time Frame: 36-months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Objective response rate will be assessed.
  • Cancer immunogenicity [ Time Frame: 36-months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Immunogenic responses to cancer cell vaccination will be measured.

Study To Test the Safety and Efficacy of TVI-Brain-1 As A Treatment for Recurrent Grade IV Glioma
Phase 2 Study To Test The Safety and Efficacy of TVI-Brain-1 As A Treatment For Recurrent Grade IV Glioma

TVI-Brain-1 is an experimental treatment that takes advantage of the fact that your body can produce immune cells, called 'killer' white blood cells that have the ability to kill large numbers of the cancer cells that are present in your body. TVI-Brain-1 is designed to generate large numbers of those 'killer' white blood cells and to deliver those cells into your body so that they can kill your cancer cells.

The TVI-Brain-1 treatment involves several steps. First, the patient's cancer will be surgically removed to provide cells for the vaccine. Second, the patient will be vaccinated with the vaccine formulation. Third, the patient's blood will be filtered for killer T cell precursors which will then be cultured and stimulated to reach a higher (killer) activity level. Fourth, the activated cells will be infused into the patient's bloodstream so that they will be able to attack the cancer.

Interventional
Phase 2
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Grade IV Glioma
  • Grade IV Astrocytoma
  • Glioblastoma Multiforme
Biological: TVI-Brain-1
Following surgery, tumor tissue is used to generate a cancer vaccine. Patients are vaccinated with neutralized cells to initiate an immune response. Following vaccinations, the patient's white blood cells are collected, the white blood cells are stimulated and expanded, and are then reinfused into the patient's blood.
Other Name: Cancer vaccine plus immune adjuvant, plus activated white blood cells
Experimental: TVI-Brain-1
All patients will receive the full TVI-Brain-1 treatment.
Intervention: Biological: TVI-Brain-1
