Brief Summary:
This is a double-blind, randomized, parallel groups Phase II trial. Patients with platinum-sensitive advanced ovarian cancer, defined as a lack of progression by RECIST v1.1 criteria following completion of standard-of-care chemotherapy, including a minimum of 4 cycles of a platinum-containing regimen. Patients will be randomized to either the vaccine regimen with GM-CSF adjuvant or GM-CSF adjuvant alone as a control group. Treatment will be administered as a consolidation therapy within one year of the last administration of platinum, targeting the first remission.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Platinum Sensitive Ovarian Cancer Ovarian Cancer Biological: FRα peptide plus Adjuvant (GM-CSF) Drug: Adjuvant (GM-CSF) Alone Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a multicenter double-blind controlled randomized Phase II study to evaluate the activity of folate receptor alpha (FRα) peptide vaccine as a consolidation treatment following completion of no less than 4 cycles of a platinum containing regimen in patients with platinum-sensitive, non-mucinous ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer.

The patients will have demonstrated a tumor response or stable disease upon their last regimen (per RECIST v1.1 and/or CA125 GCIG criteria) prior to enrolment in this study.

Following randomization, patients will be administered TPIV200 with GM-CSF adjuvant or GM-CSF control alone. Patients will have booster doses and tumor assessments done every 12 weeks ± 1 week for up to 1.5 years, until objective disease progression or the patient withdraws consent. Tumor responses will be assessed at the study sites by evaluating tumor images/scans according to RECIST v1.1.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Time to disease progression or recurrence of ovarian cancer defined as disease progression by RECIST 1.1., disease recurrence, death without progression or CA125 progression

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Death with or without ovarian cancer progression

  2. Best overall response rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Best overall response defined as sum of Complete Responses and Partial Responses in the subset of patients with measurable tumor lesions at baseline

  3. Disease control rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Disease control rate defined as the sum of Complete Responses, Partial Responses and Stable Disease

  4. Response Rate by immune-related RECIST (irRECIST) criteria [ Time Frame: 2years ]
  5. Cancer Antigen (CA)-125 response [ Time Frame: 2years ]
    2 fold increase from from the baseline CA125 (if above normal at baseline) or 2-fold greater than normal limits (if within normal limits at baseline)

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Criteria for Inclusion:

  1. Female patient ≥ 18 years
  2. Willing and able to give informed consent
  3. Stage III-IV platinum-sensitive (defined as a lack of progression by RECIST v1.1 criteria following completion of standard-of-care chemotherapy, including a minimum of 4 cycles of a platinum-containing regimen) epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal carcinoma in first remission.
  4. Histologic documentation of diagnosis of carcinoma is required and the following histologic subtypes are eligible: high grade (grade ≥3+) serous or endometrioid carcinoma, carcinosarcoma, or poorly-differentiated adenocarcinoma, or mixed (including above subtypes only). Note that synchronous serous or endometrioid uterine or fallopian cancers are allowed.
  5. The patient must have demonstrated an objective response (PR or CR) or stable disease (SD) with the last chemotherapy prior to enrollment and this response must be stable (without progressive disease) before randomization.
  6. Patients must receive their first dose of vaccine within 1 year of completion of their final dose of a chemotherapeutic agent of the platinum-containing regimen
  7. Adequate normal organ and marrow function within 14 days prior to first vaccine administration:

    • Absolute neutrophil count > 1.5 x 109/L
    • Platelet > 100 x 109/L
    • Hemoglobin > 9.0 g/dL
    • Serum bilirubin < 1.5 times ULN (unless Gilbert's syndrome without concurrent clinically significant liver disease
    • AST/ALT < 2.5 ULN unless liver metastasis in which case it must be < 5 x ULN
