Brief Summary:
This is a three-part open label phase 1 study designed to determine the safety profile, MTD, PK and tumor and biomarker response after IT or IV administration of a single dose of VSV-IFNβ-NIS, or combined IT followed by IV VSV-IFNβ-NIS, with or without IV avelumab every two weeks, in patients with refractory advanced/metastatic solid tumors. The study consists of three parts: a single ascending dose escalation of IT VSV-IFNβ-NIS monotherapy, a monotherapy regimen selection phase (IT alone, IT then IV, or IV alone) and an expansion phase, designed to explore the safety and efficacy of the chosen monotherapy regimen alone or in combination with avelumab in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, pheochromocytoma and neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients . This phase contains a small dose de-escalation-re-escalation period to ensure the safety of the combination prior to opening the corresponding expansion cohort.
