DNAtrix To Present Interim Phase 2 Results of DNX-2401 with Pembrolizumab for Glioblastoma
HOUSTON, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- DNAtrix, Inc., a leader in oncolytic virus immunotherapies for cancer, will present interim results from the ongoing Phase 2 trial of its oncolytic virus DNX-2401 (tasadenoturev) with pembrolizumab for patients with recurrent glioblastoma at the upcoming 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) which is being held in New Orleans, Louisiana from November 15th - 18th.
CAPTIVE / KEYNOTE-192 is a Phase 2 multicenter, dose escalation study evaluating a single intratumoral injection of DNX-2401 followed by standard dosing with pembrolizumab every three weeks to determine the optimal dose, safety, and efficacy in patients with recurrent glioblastoma. Preliminary results demonstrate that DNX-2401 with pembrolizumab is well tolerated, and associated with promising survival.
"I am excited by the early results of the trial. We have had some very remarkable responses. If I had not done the case myself, I would not have believed the complete response we have seen in one of our patients," said Gelareh Zadeh, MD, Associate Professor at the Department of Surgery University of Toronto, and presenting author for the CAPTIVE / KEYNOTE-192 study.
"There are limited treatment options for patients with this devastating disease, and we are encouraged by the initial data showing safety and disease control with the combination of DNX-2401 and pembrolizumab," added Frank Tufaro, PhD, CEO of DNAtrix. "We are pleased that enrollment is nearly complete and we are looking forward to maturation of the survival data."
DNAtrix collaborators will present additional results from studies of DNX-2401 (a.k.a. Delta-24-RGD) and murine DNX-2440 (a.k.a. Delta-24-RGDOX), an oncolytic adenovirus expressing the immune modulator OX40 ligand. Details of the presentations are as follows:
