Safety and Tolerability of TG1050: A Dose-finding Study

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.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02428400

Brief Summary:


This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-cohort Phase 1/1b study in patients that are currently being treated for chronic HBV infection. For all cohorts, patients must be receiving antiviral treatment with either tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) or entecavir (ENT) for at least two years, and have their HBV infection well-controlled

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Placebo: adenovirus reference material (ARM) buffer

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of TG1050 administered as single or multiple doses: Overall number of AEs, including SAEs, Grade 3 or 4 AEs, Grade 3 or 4 laboratory abnormalities, and any AE leading to a permanent discontinuation of IMP for any reason. [ Time Frame: Week 54 ]
  2. Dosage of TG1050/placebo administration for investigation in Part B of the study will be determined. [ Time Frame: Week 54 ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • 18 through 65 years of age, inclusive
  • Patients must be undetectable for neutralizing antibodies to Adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) (PART A ONLY)
  • Negative serum β-HCG (for women of childbearing potential only; women of non-childbearing potential are defined as a woman who has been postmenopausal for ≥ 2 years or who had had a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or medically documented ovarian failure)
  • Female patients of childbearing potential must be willing to use double effective methods of contraception (e.g. two of the following: hormonal contraception, condom or occlusive cap, intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS), male sterilisation, or true abstinence) through 3 months after the last IMP administration; male patients must agree to use a double effective method of contraception (e.g. two of the following: hormonal contraception, condom or occlusive cap, IUD or IUS, male sterilisation, or true abstinence) during heterosexual intercourse with a partner capable of becoming pregnant throughout 3 months after the last IMP administration
  • Currently on treatment for HBV monoinfection (any HBV genotypes) for at least 2 years with either the nucleos(t)ide analogue TDF or ENT
  • A history of HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL for at least 6 months before entry and HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL at screening.
  • HBsAg positive
  • HBeAg positive or HBeAg negative patients with HBV infection
  • Compensated liver disease; defined as direct or conjugated bilirubin ≤ 1.2 × ULN, PT/INR ≤ 1.2 × ULN, platelets ≥ 150,000/mm3, serum albumin ≥ 3.5 g/L, and no prior history of clinical hepatic decompensation (eg, ascites, jaundice, encephalopathy, variceal hemorrhage)
  • ALT ≤ 1.5 x ULN. Due to its biological variability, a re-test of the ALT parameter is allowed if the ALT value at screening does not exceed 10% of the 1.5 x ULN value and all other eligibility criteria are met. In this case, the ALT re-test can be performed no more than one month after the initial ALT screening assay and has to be confirmed within 2 weeks. Values of the two ALT assays re-tests have to be below 1.5 x ULN to include the patient. In case of re-test of the ALT parameter, all hematology and biochemistry parameters will be reassessed in parallel of the second ALT re-test to ensure that they are still matching TG1050.02 eligibility criteria.• Hemoglobin ≥ 10 g/L
  • Creatinine clearance > 50mL/min
  • Neutrophils ≥ 1,500/mm3
  • Signed, written Independent Ethics Committee (IEC)-approved informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with any evidence of hepatocellular carcinoma or any other liver cancer
  • Patients with α-fetoprotein > 50 ng/mL
  • Patients co-infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) or hepatitis Delta virus (HDV)
  • Patients with either a) medical history or evidence of cirrhosis who had any biopsy showing cirrhosis or any approved non-invasive test indicative of cirrhosis as documented in the medical source documents; OR b) either of the following at screening: transient elastography score ≥ 10.5 kPa OR a Fibrotest® Fibrosure® score of ≥ 0.48 and an aspartate aminotransferase platelet ratio Index (APRI) of ≥1. Note: If a biopsy or non-invasive test has never been performed or if a biopsy or non-invasive test has been performed but showed no cirrhosis, then b) must be followed at screening
  • Patients with a history of uncontrolled thyroid disease or abnormal thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels at screening (defined as < 0.8 × lower limit of normal [LLN] or > 1.2 × ULN; patients are eligible with abnormal TSH levels if the free triiodothyronine (FT3) and free thyroxine (FT4) are within normal limits)
  • Significant concomitant medical disorder including active systemic infection or proven or suspected immunosuppressive disorder
  • History of immunodeficiency or autoimmune disease (including autoimmune hepatitis, or preexisting autoimmune or antibody-mediated disease)
  • Current or history of clinically significant oncologic, pulmonary, hepatic, gastrointestinal, renal, cardiovascular, metabolic, endocrine, neurologic, hematologic illness, major organ transplantation, or any other major medical disorder that, in the judgment of the investigator, would interfere with patient treatment, or preclude patient participation in this study; should be discussed case by case with the Sponsor
  • Pregnant or breast-feeding women
  • Prior treatment with an experimental gene therapy product or a gene therapy product
  • Prior participation in another research protocol involving an investigation medicinal product (IMP) within 4 months prior to TG1050/placebo injection
  • History of substance abuse, including alcohol abuse that in the judgment of the investigator would deem the patient as not be suitable for participation in the study
  • Patients unable or unwilling to comply with the protocol requirements

All key inclusion and exclusion criteria remain the same for patients in Part A, MD Cohort and in Part B of the study except for the following:

Patients with detectable or undetectable anti-Ad5 neutralizing antibodies are eligible (i.e. regardless of their pre-immunity to Ad5 nAb).
