MVX-ONCO-1 in Patients With Solid Tumor

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02193503
Recruitment Status : Active, not recruiting
First Posted : July 17, 2014

Maxivax SA

Brief Summary:
The objectives are to assess the safety and tolerability of 6 vaccine doses of MVX-ONCO-1, administered sub-cutaneously (injections and capsules implantations), in patients with advanced metastatic solid tumor in progression who are not or not any longer amenable to any standard therapy of their tumour disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumor Cancer Other: Treatment Phase 1

Detailed Description:


Primary: To assess safety parameters including adverse and serious adverse events (incidence, causality, severity), local and systemic tolerance to the administered study treatment, changes in laboratory values and vital signs in patients with solid tumor; Secondary: to measure some tumor responses in using imaging technique, serological tumor markers, immune monitoring and metabolic monitoring.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Phase I Clinical Study Assessing Safety and Tolerability of MVX-ONCO-1 in Patients With Solid Tumor Who Are Not/Not Any Longer Amenable to Standard Therapy
Actual Study Start Date : March 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2026

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: treatment
MVX-1-loaded capsules and injection of irradiated autologous tumor cells
Other: Treatment
Treatment is the implantation of loaded capsules + injection of irradiated autologous tumor cells
Other Names:
  • - capsules MVX-1-loaded (medical device)
  • - irradiated autologous tumor cells (cell therapy)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients with Adverse Events and/or Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 18 weeks ]
    Adverse events will be followed carefully at each clinic visit by the Investigator, to determine their incidence, causality and severity.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Delayed type hypersensitivity reactions, Induction of a specific CD8 response [ Time Frame: 18 weeks ]
    immune monitoring

  2. imaging and metabolic monitoring [ Time Frame: 18 weeks ]
  3. tumor size [ Time Frame: 18 weeks ]
    document of tumor number, sites, size of lesions

  4. tumor pain [ Time Frame: 18 weeks ]
    intensity, site, frequency of pain, use of analgesics
