This phase Ib study evaluates the safety and efficacy of OH2 in combination with HX008, an anti-PD-1 antibody, in patients with Melanoma.

OH2 is an oncolytic virus developed upon genetic modifications of the herpes simplex virus type 2 strain HG52, allowing the virus to selectively replicate in tumors. Meanwhile, the delivery of the gene encoding human granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) may induce a more potent antitumor immune response.


The trial is a phase Ib study evaluating the safety and efficacy of OH2 injection combined with HX008 injection in patients with Melanoma.

In the Phase Ib dose escalation trial, two doses (1x10e6, 1x10e7 CCID50/mL) of OH2 will be combined with HX008(at a fixed dose of 200mg) will be tested.

In the Phase Ib dose expansion trial, OH2(1x10e7 CCID50/mL) will be injected individually in the first week, followed by every two weeks while HX008(200 mg) will be injected every three weeks after the first injection which will be in the second week.

Blood samples will be collected and radiological imaging will be performed to evaluate safety and efficacy during the trial. Besides, patients will be subjected to cutaneous swabs, and blood/urine/feces sampling to determine virus shedding. Participating patients will be evaluated for objective response rate, progression free survival and overall survival.
