PV-10 vs Chemotherapy or Oncolytic Viral Therapy for Treatment of Locally Advanced Cutaneous Melanoma


Brief description of study

This is an international multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial (RCT) of single-agent intralesional PV-10 versus systemic chemotherapy or intralesional oncolytic viral therapy to assess treatment of locally advanced cutaneous melanoma in patients who (1) are not candidates for targeted therapy and (2) are not candidates for an immune checkpoint inhibitor. Subjects in the comparator arm will receive the Investigator's choice of dacarbazine (DTIC), temozolomide (TMZ) or intralesional talimogene laherparepvec as determined by Investigator preference and standard of care in the Investigator's country or region. Effectiveness will be assessed by comparison of progression-free survival (PFS) between all intent-to-treat (ITT) subjects in the two study treatment arms.

Detailed Study Description

Subjects will be randomized using a 2:1 treatment allocation (i.e. two-thirds of the subjects will receive PV-10).

Subjects in the comparator arm who have completed at least 1 cycle of study treatment and who meet the study protocol definition of disease progression but do not have evidence of visceral metastases will be eligible to enter the crossover portion of the study and receive PV-10. Subjects crossing over must meet all study inclusion and exclusion criteria for clinical laboratories, thyroid function, concurrent or intercurrent illness and pregnancy at the time of crossover.

Assessment of progression will be performed by an Independent Review Committee (IRC) based on Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) ver. 1.1 criteria. Events signaling progression include increase in size and/or number of lesions, distant or nodal disease progression, or death. All secondary endpoints involving disease response and progression will be based on the IRC determination.

An interim assessment of efficacy and safety will be performed by the IRC when 50% of the events required for the primary endpoint have occurred.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02288897
