|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Metastatic Melanoma||Biological: REOLYSIN Drug: Carboplatin Drug: Paclitaxel||Phase 2|
Cutaneous melanoma is one of the most rapidly increasing cancers in the US and around the world with an increase in incidence of about 3-7% per year for fair-skinned Caucasian populations. An estimated 62,480 cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the US in 2008 with an estimated 8,420 deaths. An additional 46,170 cases of melanoma in situ are predicted.
Melanoma that has spread to distant sites (stage IV) is rarely curable.
This Phase 2 study is designed to characterize the efficacy and safety of REOLYSIN given intravenously in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin every 3 weeks in patients with metastatic melanoma.
Response is a primary endpoint of this trial.
Patients may continue to receive chemotherapy in combination with REOLYSIN for up to 8 cycles and may continue indefinitely on REOLYSIN monotherapy under this protocol, provided they have not experienced either progressive disease or unacceptable drug-related toxicity that does not respond to either supportive care or dose reduction.

- Determine the antitumor effect in terms of objective response rates (i.e., partial response (PR) and complete response (CR) to treatment) [ Time Frame: must be confirmed 4 weeks after the criteria for response are first met. ]
- Evaluate the safety and tolerability of the treatment regimen in the study population. [ Time Frame: Within 30 days of last dose of REOLYSIN ]
- Assess progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) and disease control [CR+PR+Stable Disease (SD)] rate and duration in the study population [ Time Frame: until death ]
