Brief Summary:

Adoptive cell therapy (ACT) with tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) in combination with lymphodepletion and high-dose interleukin 2.

Most TIL ACT trials have been conducted as salvage therapy for patients who already had failed numerous treatments; many study participants presented with multiple metastases, frequently in visceral organs and even in the brain. The effectiveness of TIL ACT in eradicating metastatic tumors of the responding patients underlines the value of this immunotherapeutic approach.

Recent developments in the identification and selection of tumor-specific T-cell populations have facilitated the implementation of TIL ACT also in nonmelanoma malignancies. Building on the experience of Ella Lemelbaum Institute, Sheba Medical Center with ACT TIL in the treatment of metastatic melanoma, the Dept. of Oncology, Tel HaShomer has expanded the use of TIL ACT following a reduced intensity, non-myeloablative, lymphodepleting induction regimen to metastatic Melanoma, Ovarian (OC) and Cervical cancer patients. The rationale supporting these studies is to further develop the ACT TIL procedure and expand its applicability to metastatic OC and cervical cancers.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Ovarian Cancer Drug: Fludarabine Radiation: Radiation Biological: TIL administration Drug: IL-2 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The Sponsor is developing the ex-vivo expanded autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (TIL) as the Investigational Product (IP). Yet, the administration of the TIL cellular product can only be accomplished in the context of an Autologous, Adoptive Cell Therapy (ACT) procedure which is composed of the following steps:

  1. Reduced Intensity, non-myeloablative, lymphodepleting induction regimen using Fludarabine (25 mg/m2 for 3 days) followed by Total Body Radiation (TBR) (2 Gray as a single treatment) for 1 day
  2. Preparation and administration of unselected or 4-1BB enriched TIL
  3. Bolus high-dose (720,000 IU/kg) IL-2 will be administered to each patient every 8 hours, to tolerance. A maximum of 10 doses will be administered per patient.
  4. Early-stage follow-up until 30 days post-discharge
  5. Late-stage follow-up, such as CT scans, will be carried out four and twelve weeks after TIL administration, and then every 3 months thereafter for the first year after TIL therapy; for the second year and onwards, as clinically indicated.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 15 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Tumor responses [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Radiological follow up via CT to determine the sum of complete Responders (CR) + Partial Responders (PR) +Stable Disease (SD) as assessment by RECICT 1.1

  2. Assess adverse events using NCI CTCAE V.4.03 during treatment and follow up [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    adverse events will be assess using MCI CTCAE V.4.03 during treatment and follow up


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Overall survival is defined as the time from study entry until death from any cause

  2. Response Rate( RR) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Radiological follow up via CT to determine the sum of complete responders (CR) + Partial responders (PR) as assessed by RECICT 1.1

  3. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Progression free survival according to RECICT 1.1

  4. Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    assessment of Quality of Life (QoL) using disease specific modules of the EORTC QLQ-C30 (version 3.0)

INCLUSION CRITERIA

  1. Able to understand and sign the Informed Consent Form.
  2. Pathology confirmed epithelial Ovarian/Fallopian Tube/Primary Peritoneal carcinomatosis.
  3. For ovarian/peritoneal carcinoma: Platinum- resistant or platinum refractory disease (platinum-resistant disease is defined as disease-progression within 6 months of completion of prior platinum containing regimen, whereas platinum refractory disease is defined as disease progression while on platinum containing regimen or within 3 months from first line, adjuvant chemotherapy).
  4. Received and exhausted standard of care therapies for recurrent ovarian cancer and further chemotherapy lines have no proven added value. (For platinum resistant disease, received no more than 3 prior chemotherapy lines, whereas for platinum refractory disease received no more than 2 previous chemotherapy lines).
  5. Patients must have at least one lesion that is resectable for TIL generation.
  6. Have measurable disease per RECIST 1.1.
  7. Patients with one or more brain metastases less than 1 cm each, and any patients with 1 or 2 brain metastases greater than 1 cm must have been treated and stable for 6 weeks.

Patients may have undergone minor surgical procedures with the past 3 weeks, as long as all toxicities have recovered to grade 1 or less.

Note: As described in the Study Population section in the synopsis, before entering the trial, the medical team will present other available experimental therapies to the patient for her consideration.

SUBJECT EXCLUSION CRITERIA

  1. Women of child-bearing potential who are pregnant or breastfeeding because of the potentially dangerous effects of the non-myeloablative, lymphodepleting induction regimen on the fetus or infant. (Note: Pregnancies occurring in patients with Ovarian cancer are very rare, but possible. For this reason, ELIM has decided to retain the sections dealing with possible cases of pregnancy during the study.)

  7. History of coronary revascularization or ischemic heart disease.
  8. Any patient known to have an LVEF less than or equal to 50 percent.
