  Purpose
This phase I trial studies the best dose and side effects of recombinant vesicular stomatitis virus expressing interferon beta in treating patients with liver cancer or solid tumors with lesions that have spread to other parts of the body and do not respond to treatment. The study virus has a gene inserted into it which will allow production of interferon beta, which is a substance that will restrict the spread of the virus to tumor cells and not healthy cells. It will also have some independent anti-cancer activity. Although the primary goal of this study is to evaluate the safety of delivery of this viral agent to people, patients may benefit clinically by having shrinkage or stabilization of their tumor or reduction in their cancer related symptoms (e.g., pain). Funding Source - FDA OOPD.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Best tumor response, defined as the best objective status recorded among patients with measurable disease at baseline using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1 [ Time Frame: From the start of the treatment until disease progression, assessed up to 3 years ]
    Responses will be summarized by simple descriptive summary statistics delineating complete and partial responses as well as stable and progressive disease in this patient population (overall, by dose level, and by disease type). Examined in an exploratory and hypothesis-generating fashion.

  • Incidence of adverse events, graded according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    All eligible patients that have initiated treatment will be considered evaluable for assessing adverse event rate(s). The maximum grade for each type of adverse event will be recorded for each patient, and frequency tables will be reviewed by dose level to determine patterns. Additionally, the relationship of the adverse event(s) to the study treatment will be taken into consideration. Examined in an exploratory and hypothesis-generating fashion.

  • Maximum tolerated dose, defined as the highest dose at which no more than 1/6 patients experiences dose limiting toxicities, graded according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Dose limiting toxicities defined as an adverse event during the first 4 weeks following injection. A modified "3+3" Fibonacci dose escalation scheme will be used Examined in an exploratory and hypothesis-generating fashion.

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: From registration to death due to any cause, assessed up to 3 years ]
    The distribution of survival time will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier (overall, by dose level, and by disease type). Examined in an exploratory and hypothesis-generating fashion.

  • Tumor necrosis [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Injected lesion and distant lesion necrosis rate will be defined as injected lesion and distant lesion >= 30% increase in necrosis from baseline, respectively. Frequency and relative frequency will be computed for each (overall, by dose level and by disease type). This analysis will be conducted in hepatocellular carcinoma patients only.
