  Purpose
This will be a Phase Ib open-label trial of CAVATAK™ (CVA21) in combination with Pembrolizumab for the treatment of patients with advanced NSCLC. The dose of Pembrolizumab will be fixed at 200mg. Three cohorts (dose levels) of intravenously-delivered CVA21 will be explored, using a standard 3+3 patient dose escalation design. The starting dose of CVA21 will be one log below the 1 x 10^9 TCID50 dose found to be safe when CVA21 was given alone in an ongoing Phase I study (NCT02043665).

Condition Intervention Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: Pembrolizumab Biological: CVA21 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I/II Open-label Trial of Intravenous CAVATAK^TM in Combination With Pembrolizumab for the Treatment of Patients With Advanced NSCLC

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [Safety and Tolerability]. [ Time Frame: 0-24 months ]
    To evaluate the safety of intravenous CVA21 in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with advanced NSCLC. All adverse events will be collected and assessed with regards to CTCAE V4.0 grading, seriousness, duration and relationship to the study drugs.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • ORR from the date of first study treatment as assessed by RECIST [ Time Frame: 0-24 months ]
  • ORR from the date of first study treatment as assessed by immune related response criteria (irRC) [ Time Frame: 0-24 Months ]
    The overall response according to the irRC is derived from time-point response assessments based on tumor burden. In the irRC, an immune-related Complete Response (irCR) is the disappearance of all lesions, measured or unmeasured, and no new lesions; an immune-related Partial Response (irPR) is a 50% drop in tumour burden from baseline as defined by the irRC; and immune-related Progressive Disease (irPD) is a 25% increase in tumour burden from the lowest level recorded. Everything else is considered immune-related Stable Disease (irSD).

  • PFS [ Time Frame: 0-36 Months ]
  • Incidence of detectable CVA21 virus and neutralizing antibodies [ Time Frame: 0-24 Months ]
  • OS [ Time Frame: 0-36 Months ]
  • Incidence of detectable CVA21 virus and neutralizing antibodies [ Time Frame: 0-36 months ]
  • Change in PD-L1 expression from sequential biopsies in eight initial NSCLC patients [ Time Frame: 0-36 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40

Detailed Description:

Primary Objective & Hypothesis

(1) Objective:

To evaluate the safety of intravenous CVA21 in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with advanced NSCLC.

Hypothesis:

Pembrolizumab in combination with intravenous CVA21 will be well tolerated in patients with advanced NSCLC.

Secondary Objective & Hypothesis

(1) Objective:

i. To evaluate the efficacy of intravenous CVA21 in inducing an immune cell rich tumour microenvironment in patients with a baseline biopsy demonstrating a tumour with an immune cell poor microenvironment.

ii. To evaluate the efficacy of intravenous CVA21 in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with advanced NSCLC using irRECIST.

iii. To evaluate the safety of intravenous CVA21 in combination with pembrolizumab.

iv. To identify a safe and potentially effective dose for intravenous CVA21 in combination with intravenous pembrolizumab.

v. To serially evaluate the presence of detectable virus and anti-viral antibodies in peripheral blood of the trial participants.

Hypothesis:

i. CVA21 will induce immune cell infiltration into tumors of patients that lack an immune cell rich micro-environment.

Newly-obtained is defined as a specimen obtained up to 6 weeks (42 days) prior to initiation of treatment on Day 1. Subjects for whom newly-obtained samples cannot be provided (e.g. inaccessible or subject safety concern) may submit an archived specimen only upon agreement from the Sponsor.
