A Study of REOLYSIN® in Combination With Gemcitabine in Patients With Advanced Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

2014-07-24 14:11:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this Phase 2 study is to investigate whether intravenous administration of REOLYSIN therapeutic reovirus in combination with gemcitabine is effective and safe in the treatment of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Description

Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal cancers, ranking as the fourth leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. The American Cancer Society estimates that 37,170 men and women (18,830 men and 18,340 women) will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 33,370 men and women will die of pancreatic cancer in 2008.

Activating KRAS mutations are the most frequent genetic abnormalities in pancreatic cancer (occurring in 75% to 95% of patients).

REOLYSIN has been demonstrated to kill a wide variety of cells with mutations along the RAS pathway, including pancreatic cancer cells.

The Phase 2 study is designed to characterize the efficacy and safety of REOLYSIN given intravenously in combination with gemcitabine every 3 weeks in patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Response is a primary endpoint of this trial. Tumors will be evaluated by CT scan within 14 days of starting treatment, then at 6 weeks, and then every 6 weeks thereafter.

The safety of the gemcitabine and REOLYSIN combination will be assessed by the evaluation of the type, frequency and severity of adverse events, changes in clinical laboratory tests, immunogenicity and physical examination.

Patients may continue to receive therapy under this protocol, provided he/she has not experienced either progressive disease or unacceptable drug-related toxicity that does not respond to either supportive care or dose reduction.

A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
