Brief Summary:

The investigators have developed a phase I/II clinical trial to evaluate the effect of rhIL-7-hyFc on lymphocyte counts in patients with high grade glioma (HGG).

A phase I study will test whether rhIL-7-hyFc can be safely administered to patients with HGG. Six doses of rhIL-7-hyFc will be tested using a mix of Accelerated Phase and standard 3+3 dose-escalation design. The phase II portion to test effect of rhIL-7-hyFc on lymphocyte counts will use placebo-controlled randomization in HGG patients whose treatment include the standard radiation therapy (RT) and temozolomide (TMZ).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Phase I: rhIL-7-hyFc
  • Per standard treatment, patients will receive concurrent RT/TMZ followed by adjuvant TMZ on Days 1-5 of a 28-day cycle for a total of 6 cycles. rhIL-7hyFc will be given by intramuscular injection starting at the end of RT/TMZ (within 5 days after last day of RT/TMZ). The 2nd injection will be administered 3-5 days after the last dose of cycle 3 TMZ treatment (~week 13). The 3rd injection will be given 3-5 days after the last dose of cycle 6 TMZ treatment (~week 25). Note the 2nd and 3rd injections should be administered once between Day 3 through 5 following the last dose of TMZ to achieve the strongest response. The 4th injection (last injection in the study) will be given after completion of monthly TMZ (~Week 37). A total of 4 doses of rhIL-7-hyFc injections are planned
  • The phase I part will begin with an Accelerated Phase with 1 patient per cohort at the first 2 doses (60 mcg/kg and 120 mcg/kg) followed by a standard 3+3 design on the remaining 4 dose levels

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Phase I portion: Safety and tolerability of rhIL-7-hyFc as measured by the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) - Phase I only [ Time Frame: Completion of enrollment of phase I portion of study (estimated to be 1 year) ]
    -The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is defined as the dose level immediately below the non-tolerated dose. A total of at least 6 patients must be treated at a dose level for it to be considered the MTD.

  2. Phase I portion: Safety and tolerability of rhIL-7-hyFc as measured by dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: 30 days from the date when patients receive the 1st dose of rhIL-7-hyFc administration (estimated to be 29 weeks) ]
    -DLT will be defined as ≥ grade 3 non-dermatological and non-hematological AEs that occur within 30 days from the date when patients receive the 1st dose of rhIL-7-hyFc administration and are concluded to be possibly, likely or definitely related to the drug regimen that occurs during cycle 1, with severity graded according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) 5.0.

  3. Phase II portion: Percent increase of absolute lymphocyte count [ Time Frame: Prior to adjuvant TMZ (approximately week 4) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunogenicity as measured by anti-drug antibodies [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 14 ]
    -The formation of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) to rhIL-7-hyFc will be evaluated: BioAgilytix will perform both Elisa Binding (non-neutralizing) and neutralizing antibody assays according to their Standard Operating Procedure.

  2. Phase I portion: Absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  3. Immunogenicity as measured by neutralizing anti-drug antibodies [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 14 ]
    -The formation of neutralizing anti-drug antibodies (NADA) to rhIL-7-hyFc will be evaluated: BioAgilytix will perform both Elisa Binding (non-neutralizing) and neutralizing antibody assays according to their Standard Operating Procedure.

    • Platelets ≥ 75,000/mcL
    • Hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL
    • Total bilirubin ≤ 3.0 x institutional upper limit of normal

  • Able to provide written informed consent (or consent from a legally authorized representative).
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test prior to study entry (within 14 days). Patients must be willing to be on adequate contraception during treatment.

    • 18 years of age.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Receiving any other investigational agents which may affect patient's lymphocyte counts.
  • Pregnant women are excluded from this study because rhIL-7-hyFc has not been evaluated regarding its potential for teratogenic or abortifacients effects. There is a potential risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with the study drug, breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated with rhIL-7-hyFc.
  • Has an active viral infection requiring systemic treatment at screening.
  • Has active autoimmune disease or syndrome (i.e. moderate or severe rheumatoid arthritis, moderate or severe psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Guillain Barre syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosis, scleroderma, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, autoimmune hepatitis, Wegener's etc.,) that requires systemic treatment at the time of screening. Replacement therapy (e.g., thyroxine, insulin, or physiologic corticosteroid replacement therapy for adrenal or pituitary insufficiency) is not considered a form of systemic treatment. Subjects are permitted to enroll if they have vitiligo, resolved childhood asthma/atopy, type I diabetes mellitus, residual hypothyroidism due to autoimmune condition only requiring hormone replacement, psoriasis not requiring systemic treatment, or conditions not expected to recur in the absence of an external trigger.
  • Receipt of live attenuated vaccine within 30 days before the first dose of study treatment. Examples of live vaccines include, but are not limited to, the following: measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, yellow fever, rabies, Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG), Zoster, and typhoid vaccine. Seasonal influenza vaccines for injection are generally killed virus vaccines and are allowed; however, intranasal influenza vaccines (e.g. FluMist) are live attenuated vaccines and are not allowed.
