U.S. Food and Drug Administration Approves California Stem Cell, Inc.'s Phase II Cancer Stem Cell Clinical Trial for Ovarian Cancer

California Stem Cell, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the company's application to begin a Phase II clinical trial exploring the potential of a patient specific cancer immunotherapy in women with Stage III or IV ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer. The randomized, double blind study is the company's second cancer therapy approved for clinical trials by the FDA, bolstering its platform approach to treating late stage solid-tumor cancers. The company's patient specific approach to treating metastatic melanoma, recently approved to begin a Phase III trial, provided sufficient safety data to proceed directly to a Phase II study in ovarian cancer. The study design randomizes an estimated 99 adult female patients to two treatment arms. The treatment group will receive Ovapuldencel-T, which is a combination of autologous dendritic cells loaded with irradiated autologous tumor cells in GM-CSF. Ovapuldencel-T is created by first isolating cancer stem cells from the patient's resected tumor sample, then enriching, inactivating and combining these cells with dendritic cells or antigen presenting immune cells which are harvested from the patient's blood. The control group will receive the ‘MC’ treatment, harvested from the patient's blood combined with GM-CSF, granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor, a white blood cell growth factor. The trial design calls for both groups to receive subcutaneous injections of their respective treatment weekly for three consecutive weeks, then monthly for the following five months. The trial is expected to last approximately sixty months, including enrollment, treatment, and long term patient follow-up.
