Brief Summary:
This is the first clinical trial of AdAPT-001 for the treatment of cancer. AdAPT-001 is an oncolytic virus that is injected directly into the tumor. The purpose of this study is to find out the highest dose of AdAPT-001 that is safe and tolerable. This is the first step in studying whether it can be used to treat others with cancer in the future.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumor, Adult Cancer Neoplasms Biological: AdAPT-001 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a dose escalation protocol to determine, first and foremost, the safety, tolerability and feasibility of intratumoral administration of AdAPT-001.

The study has 2 parts. Different groups of patients will participate in each part.

PART 1: Dose Escalation Safety Run-In

During part 1, all participants will be treated with AdAPT-001 as a single injection, one time. Participants will be assigned to different dose levels to find the highest dose of AdAPT-001 that is safe and tolerable.

PART 2: Dose Expansion Single-Agent

All participants in PART 2 will receive injections of AdAPT-001 on Days 1 and 15 of 28-day cycles. The dose of AdAPT-001 used in Part 2 will be decided by the results from Part 1.

Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 1, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Part 1: Dose Escalation Safety Run-In
Subjects will be treated with AdAPT-001 as a single injection, one time.
Biological: AdAPT-001
Oncolytic virus administered by intratumoral injection

Experimental: Part 2: Dose Expansion Single-Agent
6 subjects will be enrolled in the Lead In Cohort. A Safety Analysis will be performed after 6 subjects have received at least 4 doses. Upon Safety team review as a continuous reassessment of safety, an additional 19 subjects may be enrolled. All subjects in PART 2 will receive injections of AdAPT-001 on Days 1 and 15 of 28-day cycles.
Biological: AdAPT-001
Oncolytic virus administered by intratumoral injection

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLT) [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    All subjects in part 1 will be assessed for the development of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) during treatment with AdAPT-001. The DLT assessment period is defined as: Day of Injection through 28 days post injection (Safety Follow Up). A DLT will be defined as any Grade 3 or higher adverse event, as assessed by the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0.

  2. Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    In part 1, A MTD is determined if any cohort experiences 2 subjects with DLT's.

  3. Safety of a multiple dose regimen of AdAPT-001 [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    The safety data will include adverse events, serious adverse events, performance status, clinical laboratory tests, vital signs and physical examination results.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Anti-tumor activity of AdAPT-001 [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    In part 2, overall response rate (ORR) and best overall response rates per response evaluation criteria outlined in Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) guideline (version 1.1), as well as progression-free survival (PFS), and duration of response will be assessed.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Anti-tumor activity by iRECIST [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    ORR and best overall response rates per Immune Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (iRECIST)

  2. Biodistribution [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    This outcome will measure TGFβ trap concentrations in the serum and, in patients who consent to tissue collections, test for TGFβ trap expression in the treated tumors.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject is capable of understanding the purpose and risks of the study and has provided written Informed Consent.
  2. Subject is male or female, aged at least 18 years.
  3. Subject has a histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of an advanced malignant solid tumor(s) who have received all conventional therapies considered appropriate by Investigator and have a tumor that is easily accessible for treatment.
  4. Subject's Eastern Cooperative Group (ECOG) performance status is 0-2 at Screening.
  5. Subject has acceptable liver function at Screening, as evidenced by:

    1. Bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN (upper limit of normal)
    2. AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) < 3.0 x ULN (upper limit of normal)
    3. Alkaline Phosphatase < 2.5 x ULN (upper limit of normal)
  6. Subject has a Serum Creatinine < 1.5 x ULN (upper limit of normal)
  7. Subject has acceptable hematologic status at Screening, as evidenced by:

    1. Absolute neutrophil count > 1,500 cells/mm3; > 1.5 x 109/L, and
    2. Platelet count > 75,000/mm3; > 75.0 x 109/L, and
    3. Hemoglobin (HGB) > 10.0 g/dL; > 6.2 mmol/L
