"Heavily pretreated patients with late-stage platinum-resistant/refractory ovarian cancer face a poor prognosis, and would otherwise be considered for palliative care versus continuing drug therapies with diminishing clinical response," said Paul Scigalla, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer of Genelux. "The positive results from this trial along with supporting data demonstrating mechanisms of action are therefore very encouraging. We look forward to the completion of VIRO-15."

Abstract Title: Phase 1b study of oncolytic vaccinia virus GL-ONC1 in recurrent ovarian cancer
Session Title/Date/Time: Gynecologic Cancer, 6/4/2018, Poster Session 1:15-4:45 PM
Abstract Highlights: The open-label, single-arm, monotherapy, dose-escalation study (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02759588) treated eleven heavily pretreated patients (pts) with end-stage recurrent ovarian cancer (ROC). Patient characteristics include: # of prior lines: 3-4 (n=3), ? 5 (n=8); ECOG 0 (n=7) or 1 (n=4); ascites/pleural effusion (n=9); and having progressive disease at baseline (n=10). There were two dose cohorts: 3 × 109 (Cohort 1: n=6) or 1 × 1010 (Cohort 2: n=5) plaque forming units of GL-ONC1 administered per day on 2 consecutive days.
A Phase 2 trial (VIRO-15) is currently enrolling, and future studies combining GL-ONC1 and other immune therapies and/or chemotherapy are under consideration.
