Phase 2 Study of Advaxis's Axalimogene Filolisbac (ADXS-HPV) in Cervical Cancer to be Presented at 2015 AGOS Annual Meeting
Advaxis, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADXS), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing cancer immunotherapies, today announced that final clinical data from Stage 1 of the ongoing two-stage Phase 2 study (GOG-0265) of Advaxis's lead Lm Technology™ immunotherapy, axalimogene filolisbac (ADXS-HPV), in patients with persistent or recurrent metastatic (squamous or non-squamous cell) carcinoma of the cervix (PRmCC), will be presented at the American Gynecological & Obstetrical Society (AGOS) annual meeting in Half Moon Bay, Calif. by Tom Hertzog, M.D., Clinical Director at the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute, on September 17, 2015, at 11:15 a.m. PDT.
"There are limited therapies available in metastatic cervical cancer, particularly for patients who have failed at least one line of therapy," said Dr. Hertzog. "We see the potential for axalimogene filolisbac to fill a significant unmet need in the treatment of this disease and look forward to presenting these Stage 1 data at the AGOS annual meeting."
GOG-0265 is an open-label, single-arm, two-stage Phase 2 study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of axalimogene filolisbac in approximately 67 patients with PRmCC who have received at least one prior line of systemic therapy. The primary efficacy endpoint is 12-month overall survival rate, with secondary efficacy endpoints of progression-free survival, overall survival and objective tumor response. The primary safety endpoints are the number of patients with dose-limiting toxicities and the frequency and severity of adverse effects.
The trial is being conducted in the United States by the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), now part of NRG Oncology, under the sponsorship of the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Further information about the study can be found on ClinicalTrials.gov, using Identifier NCT01266460.
