Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lerapolturev Biological: lerapolturev
Lerapolturev (5x10^7 TCID50) delivered intratumorally via convection enhanced delivery (CED).

Biological: pembrolizumab
Pembrolizumab (200 mg IV) given every 3 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate (ORR), Duration of response (DOR) and Durable Radiographic Response (DRR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

    Objective response rate (comprised of patients meeting an objective radiographic response or ORR): Patients achieving a CR or PR.

    DOR: Time from first ORR observed (once confirmed) until PD first observed (once confirmed) or death; whichever comes first.

    DRR: An ORR that persists for ≥ 6 months.

    All response must be confirmed via two consecutive MRI assessments at least 4 weeks apart. If on bevacizumab therapy when response first noted, response will be confirmed ≥ 8 weeks off bevacizumab, via MRI.

  2. Frequency and severity of treatment-emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Assess safety and tolerability of lerapolturev followed by pembrolizumab via frequency and severity of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAE) via Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE, v5.0)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease control rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Proportion of patients achieving stable disease (SD), CR or PR via protocol-specified response criteria

  2. Duration of disease control (DDC) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    DDC ≥ 6 months for those meeting DCR

  3. Progression free survival time [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    If calculable, progression free survival (PFS) will be estimated based on the time from lerapolturev infusion to death or confirmed progression

  4. Survival assessed by Kaplan-Meier methods [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Overall and landmark survival assessed by the proportion of patients alive at ≥ 6, ≥ 12 and at 24 months post-lerapolturev infusion estimated by Kaplan-Meier methods.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Biomarker identification [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Assessment of tumor tissue and blood samples for identification of genetic, cytologic, histologic and/or other markers that correlate with anti-tumor response.

  2. Radiographic response/progression/PFS via iRANO [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Alternative assessment of radiographic response/progression/PFS via iRANO

  3. Enhancing lesion ≥1 cm shortest diameter to ≤ 5.5 cm longest diameter in all planes.
  4. Before catheter placement based on screening MRI and at the time of catheter placement via CT prior to infusion, neurosurgical investigator must confirm placement of infusion catheter within or through the progressive enhancing tumor is feasible and at a safe distance relative to eloquent brain function, with the tip of the catheter being placed:
