Brief Summary:
This was a Phase 1, non-randomized, open-label, multicenter study of the ALVAC(2)-NY-ESO-1(M)/TRICOM vaccine administered with the granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) sargramostim in patients with NY-ESO-1- or LAGE-1-positive epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cavity cancers who had completed standard therapy for primary or recurrent disease and would have normally entered a period of observation. The primary study objective was to determine the safety and tolerability of study vaccination, with secondary objectives including the determination of clinical and immunological responses.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fallopian Tube Cancer Ovarian Cancer Peritoneal Cavity Cancer Biological: ALVAC(2)-NY-ESO-1(M)/TRICOM vaccine Biological: Sargramostim Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Patients received subcutaneous (SC) injections with 0.5 mL of ALVAC(2)-NY-ESO-1(M)/TRICOM on Day 1 and 100 μg of the GM-CSF sargramostim on Days 1 through 4 in continuous 28-day cycles for up to 6 cycles. No dose escalation of either vaccine component was permitted. Patients received study vaccinations until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Safety was evaluated by continuous monitoring of adverse events (AEs), concomitant medications, and vital signs, as well as through hematology and chemistry laboratory testing and physical examinations. Efficacy was determined through tumor response evaluations, cancer antigen (CA)-125 levels, and cellular and humoral immune responses (i.e., NY-ESO-1-specific T cells, antibodies to NY-ESO-1 and ALVAC, and delayed-type hypersensitivity [DTH] testing).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ALVAC(2)-NY-ESO-1(M)/TRICOM + GM-CSF
Patients received SC injections with ALVAC(2)-NY-ESO-1(M)/TRICOM (0.5 mL) on Day 1 and the GM-CSF sargramostim (100 μg) on Days 1 through 4 in continuous 28-day cycles for up to 6 cycles.
Biological: ALVAC(2)-NY-ESO-1(M)/TRICOM vaccine
The vaccine comprises the modified canary pox vector, ALVAC(2), inserted with the following genes: NYESO-1(M), TRICOM (LFA-3, ICAM-1, B7.1), vvE3L, vvK3L. The vaccine is administered at a dose of 0.5 mL SC.

Biological: Sargramostim
The GM-CSF sargramostim is administered at a dose of 100 μg SC.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients With Treatment-emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Continuously for up to 26 weeks ]
    Toxicity was graded in accordance with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), version 3.0. Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) were reported based on clinical laboratory tests, physical examinations, and vital signs from pre-treatment through the study period.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients With Best Overall Tumor Response [ Time Frame: Baseline and Weeks 12 and 24 ]
    Tumor responses were evaluated using computed tomography and categorized according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) (version 1.0) at baseline, at Week 12 (± 28 days), and at Week 24 (end of study). Per RECIST, target lesions are categorized as follows: Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of all target lesions [no evidence of disease]; Partial Response (PR): ≥ 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Progressive Disease (PD): ≥ 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Stable Disease (SD): small changes that do not meet above criteria.

  2. Median Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to approximately 24 weeks ]
    PFS was calculated from the date of the first dose of study drug to the date of documented progression or death, whichever occurred first. Patients without disease progression or death had their observation time censored at the date of the last valid disease assessment. PFS was summarized using Kaplan-Meier product-limit estimators.

  3. Median Cancer Antigen 25 (CA-125) Values on Study [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 24 ]
    Blood samples were collected for CA-125 testing as a component of disease evaluations at Baseline and Weeks 8, 12, 16, 20, and 24 (end of study) or every 2 to 3 months on study according to standard institutional practice.

  4. Number of Patients With NY-ESO-1 and LAGE-1 Antigen Positivity [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 24 ]
    Blood samples were collected for measurement of NY-ESO-1 and LAGE-1 antigen positivity at Baseline and Weeks 4, 8 ,12, 16, 20, and 24 (end of study). Antibody testing was performed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Histologically documented epithelial carcinoma arising in the ovary, fallopian tube or peritoneum, from stage II-IV at diagnosis, treated with initial surgery and chemotherapy with at least one platinum-based chemotherapy regimen.
  2. Complete response to frontline therapy as evidenced by negative clinical examination, CA-125 tumor marker, and computed tomography (CT) scan. In addition, if second look surgery was performed (by laparoscopy or laparotomy), the result must have been either negative or microscopic positive. These patients would have normally entered a period of observation after standard management.
  3. Patients with recurrent disease were eligible if they had completed surgery and/or chemotherapy for recurrent disease and would have normally entered a period of observation after completion of standard management. Eligible patients could have had asymptomatic residual measurable disease on physical examination and/or CT scan, and/or could have had an elevated CA-125 or could have been in complete clinical remission (defined as a serum CA-125 ≤ 35 IU/mL, CT scan without objective evidence of disease, and normal physical examination).
  4. Tumor expression of 1) NY-ESO-1 by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) (preferably) or immunohistochemistry (IHC); or 2) LAGE-1 by RT-PCR. Patients whose primary surgery was performed outside the study site were pre-screened and required to release tissue sections or blocks to the study site in order to determine tumor expression of NY-ESO-1 by IHC.
  5. Expected survival of at least 6 months.
  6. Full recovery from surgery.
  7. Karnofsky performance status of 70 or more.
  8. Laboratory parameters for vital functions were required to be in the normal range. Laboratory abnormalities that were not clinically significant were generally permitted, except for the following laboratory parameters, which were required to be within the ranges specified:

    • neutrophil count: ≥ 1.5 × 10^9/L
    • lymphocyte count: ≥ 0.5 × 10^9/L
