Brief Summary:

This is a Phase Ib study to look at the combination of an antibody immunization vaccine strategy using oregovomab and an investigational stage immune booster (poly ICLC / Hiltonol), both of which have previously been used in combination with other cancer treatments and demonstrated to be active in advanced cancer, but which have not previously been used together. This study will assess the approach as to whether these two drugs can safely add to the response seen with either drug alone, both of which have doses that are based on prior studies.

Subjects with stable disease for whom a 12 week break from therapy for their persistent and progressive advanced ovarian cancer is appropriate, who have signed informed consent and for whom baseline clinical information is completed, will receive 4 cycles of oregovomab/Hiltonol immunization every three weeks (weeks 0, 3, 6, and 9). Blood will be obtained for to look for a CA125 specific T cell response at 12 weeks before initiating any additional therapy according to the best clinical judgment of the investigator. At week 16 the subjects will receive a final dose of the combination of oregovomab/Hiltonol and at week 17 will have an additional blood draw for analysis of T-cell response.

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase Ib evaluation of the combination of an antibody immunization vaccine strategy using oregovomab and an investigational stage immune adjuvant (poly ICLC / Hiltonol), both of which have previously been used in combination with other cancer treatments and demonstrated to be bioactive in advanced cancer, but which have not previously been combined together. The doses selected for each agent have been selected previously through human clinical study for use in immunization protocols as a well-tolerated and bioactive immune stimulatory dose. For immunization purposes a maximum tolerated dose is not a relevant pharmacologic objective. Rather this is an exercise in efficiently assessing a preliminary immunization protocol as a cost effective product development strategy assessing the ability of the combination to safely augment the immune signals measurable with either agent alone, both of which have been titrated to the current dose based on the principle of bell shaped dose response in immunization in prior studies.

Subjects with stable disease for whom a 12 week break from cytotoxic therapy for their persistent and progressive advanced ovarian cancer is appropriate, who have signed informed consent and for whom baseline clinical information including laboratory, radiologic and physical documentation of their status is completed, will receive 4 cycles of oregovomab/Hiltonol immunization every three weeks (weeks 0, 3, 6, and 9). Blood will be obtained for the measurement of CA125 specific T cell immunity at 12 weeks before initiating continuing salvage therapy according to the best clinical judgment of the investigator. At week 16 the subjects will receive a final immunization with oregovomab/Hiltonol and at week 17 an additional blood draw for analysis of T-cell immunity.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in laboratory values, physical findings (physical examination), vital signs, subjective patient experience and treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: Week 0 to Week17+30 days ]
    The primary outcome is to establish the preliminary safety regarding the combination of the anti-CA-125 monoclonal antibody oregovomab and the TLR3 agonist immune adjuvant poly ICLC (Hiltonol ®) as a strategy to induce CA125 specific anti-tumor immunity in heavily pretreated subjects with progressive ovarian cancer.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of cellular immune response to oregovomab. [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 12, Week 17 ]
    Evaluation of the cellular immune response to oregovomab by a CA125 specific cellular immune response assay

  2. Evaluation of human anti-mouse antibody (HAMA) response to oregovomab. [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 12, Week 17 ]
    Evaluation of HAMA response to oregovomab by a commercial HAMA assay.

  3. Time to overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to Week 173 ]
    Evaluation of overall survival up to three years after study completion.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 90 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Female subjects with CA125-associated, advanced ovarian cancer (FIGO Stage III/IV) previously treated and now presenting with recurrent or persistent disease.
  2. Must have a histological diagnosis of epithelial adenocarcinoma of ovarian, tubal or peritoneal origin that is persistent or progressive following multiple rounds of prior standard of care and experimental therapy.
  3. Must have had an elevated serum CA125 level twice the upper limit of normal (per reference lab normal range) measured within 4 weeks of enrollment.
  4. Must have measurable disease by radiographic or physical criteria suitable for evaluation according to RECIST v1.1 for documentation of disease response or progression.
  5. Must have a Functional Performance Status of less than or equal to 2 on the ECOG scale (Appendix VII).
  6. Must have reached legal age to consent.
  7. Must have medical assessment consistent with prognosis for an expected survival of at least 6 months and be clinically appropriate to receive a 12 week hiatus from any cytotoxic treatment according to the best clinical judgement of the treating investigator.
  8. Must have voluntarily agreed to participate and have signed the informed consent, and are willing to complete all study procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Compromised hematopoietic function (hemoglobin <8.0 g/dL; lymphocyte count <300 mm3; neutrophil count <1000 mm3; platelet count <100,000 mm3).

  3. Renal dysfunction defined as a serum creatinine >1.6 mg/dL.
  4. Pregnant or breast-feeding. (While pregnancy is unlikely in view of the disease and previous surgery, subjects whom the investigator considers may be at risk of pregnancy will have a pregnancy [beta-HCG] test and will be using a medically approved contraceptive method).
