Study of a DNA Immunotherapy to Treat Melanoma
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase I/II Trial of SCIB1, a DNA Immunotherapy, in the Treatment of Patients With Malignant Melanoma|
- Safety & Tolerability [ Time Frame: Duration of treatment phase: up to 5.5 years ]Recording and assessment of adverse events to establish safety and tolerability of an investigational immunotherapy, SCIB1, in patients with melanoma whose cancer has spread from the initial tumour (i.e., stage III or stage IV melanoma).
- Safety, tolerability, biological and clinical effects [ Time Frame: Duration of treatment phase: up to 5.5 years ]
(i) Recording and assessment of adverse events and patient recorded experience to establish safety and tolerability of SCIB1 administered intramuscularly to melanoma patients using the TDS IM device.
(ii) Cellular immune response by ex vivo assay induced by SCIB1 administered intramuscularly to melanoma patients using the TDS-IM device.
(iii) Tumour response by CT scan in patients treated with SCIB1 (Part One only).
|Study Start Date:||May 2010|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Aqueous solution of plasmid DNA administered by intramuscular injection using the TDS-IM electroporation device (Ichor Medical Systems, Inc.) at week 0, 3, 6, 12 and 24. Part 1 of the study will escalate through 0.4, 2.0, 4.0 and 8.0 mg dose level cohorts, each of three patients. In Part 2 of the study the 4.0 and 8.0 mg doses will be administered in the same regimen. At the discretion of the investigator, patients in both parts of the study may continue to receive SCIB1 at 3-6 month intervals for 5 years.
