Experimental: Dose escalation of Ad-hCMV-TK and Ad-hCMV-Flt3L
This protocol is a dose escalation study of Ad-hCMV-TK and Ad-hCMV-Flt3L infused at the time of surgical resection followed by systemic oral administration of valacyclovir in addition to current standard of care with temozolomide and radiotherapy. Eligible subjects will be enrolled in six sequential dosing cohorts:
Subjects will be treated sequentially with a minimum of 21 days before treatment of new subjects within a cohort or before dose escalation. Once the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) is determined, or after all subjects have been evaluated and found to tolerate the highest dose, the study will end.
Biological: Dose Escalation of Ad-hCMV-TK and Ad-hCMV-Flt3L
Two adenoviral vectors will be used, each to deliver one of the therapeutic genes. Both vectors are human serotype 5, replication-defective, first generation adenoviral vectors deleted in E1a and E3 viral encoding regions. Each vector will constitutively express their respective therapeutic transgene (i.e. HSV1-TK or Flt3L) under the control of the human cytomegalovirus promoter (hCMV). Valacyclovir treatment will begin 1-3 days after vector administration at a dose of 2 grams given orally 3X per day for 14 days. A second course of valacyclovir will be given beginning Week 10.
Radiation and chemotherapy will be administered as per standard of care.
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
- Number of Patients Alive at 12 and 24 Months [ Time Frame: 24 Months ]To assess in a preliminary fashion the potential benefit of AdhCMV- TK and Ad-hCMV-Flt3L treatment of primary malignant gliomas by assessing overall survival (OS) at 12 and 24 months.
