This phase Ⅰb/Ⅱ study evaluates the safety and efficacy of OH2 for adjuvant therapy in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer after first-line prophylactic intravesical instillation therapy.

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.


This is a phase Ⅰb/Ⅱ study evaluating the safety and efficacy of OH2 in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer.

BH-OH2-016 is a single-arm,multicenter clinical trial. After screening, The treatment period includes induction treatment period and maintenance treatment period. In the induction treatment period, OH2 will be delivered once two weeks. In the maintenance treatment period, OH2 will be delivered once a month. In this trial, two doses (1x10e6, 1x10e7 CCID50/mL) of OH2 will be delivered intravesical instillation,and the 1x10e6 CCID50/mL dose group should be delivered before the 1x10e7 CCID50/mL dose group.

Adverse events (AEs) are graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) (version 5.0).Urine cytology/Cystoscopy/ultrasonography of urinary system will be used for disease recurrence examination.
