Galena Biopharma Announces Data from Phase I Cancer Vaccine Trial

Galena Biopharma announced encouraging data from a Phase I study with GALE-301, or folate binding protein, in patients with ovarian and endometrial cancer. Folate Receptor Alpha (FRÂÃ) (also known as FBP) is an immunogenic protein that is over-expressed in breast, lung, endometrial and ovarian cancers. FR¨¢ expression in malignant cells is 20-80 fold higher compared to normal cells. Galena conducted a Phase I dose escalation clinical trial with E39, an HLA-A2 positive, FR¨¢ peptide combined with the immune adjuvant, granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF). The vaccine is administered in the adjuvant setting to prevent recurrences in high-risk endometrial and ovarian cancer patients rendered clinically disease-free after standard-of-care therapy. The current analysis compared in vivo immunologic responses (IR) and disease features between vaccinated non-recurrent (vNR) and vaccinated recurrent (vR) patients. Overall, 30 patients were enrolled in the Phase I trial. Of 14 control patients, 7 (50%) have recurred. Of 16 vaccinated patients, 4 (25%) have recurred after completing the primary vaccine series (PVS), 2 (12.5%) recurred prior to completing the PVS, and one patient withdrew. Of note, no recurrences have been seen in the optimal dose cohort of 1000 mcg E39. The vR patients displayed lower mean delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) reactions as well as lower local reactions at every measured time point. In the Phase I study, HLA-A2 positive patients were enrolled into the vaccine group and received intradermal inoculations of E39 + 250 mcg GM-CSF once a month for six months (the PVS) following assignment into a dose cohort: 100mcg, 500mcg, or 1000mcg of E39. In vivo IR was assessed by both local reaction (LR) after each inoculation and DTH reaction measured pre-vaccination and post-PVS (DTH2). Comparison between vNR and vR patients demonstrates recurrences are likely related to trends in both disease features (age but not stage) as well as diminished response to the vaccine as seen by LR and DTH. As decreased vaccine response may be related to more aggressive disease, the most viable way to address this observation is to vaccinate in earlier stage disease. The ongoing Phase IIa trial is attempting to establish a preliminary efficacy signal, as well as evaluate a longer-term booster regimen.

Galena Biopharma, Inc. Completes Enrollment in Gale-301 Phase 2A Clinical Trial in Ovarian and Endometrial Cancers

Galena Biopharma, Inc. announced the completion of enrollment in the company's Phase 2a clinical trial for GALE-301, or Folate Binding Protein (FBP) peptide immunotherapy. GALE-301 is administered to HLA-A2 positive patients in combination with granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) as an adjuvant treatment to prevent recurrences in high-risk, ovarian and endometrial cancer patients rendered disease-free after completing standard of care therapy. The Phase 2a is an open-label trial with two arms consisting of HLA-A2 positive patients treated with the FBP peptide plus GM-CSF and an observational control group of HLA-A2 negative patients. The optimized dose of 1,000 mcg of peptide was determined from the Phase 1 trial and continued into the Phase 2a along with the addition of a booster regimen. The trial has completed enrollment of 45 patients. After an initial induction series of six vaccinations given once per month, patients will be administered booster inoculations at two subsequent 6-month intervals. The primary objectives of the trial are to measure the immune response, time to recurrence and overall survival between treatment arms. As reported in a poster presentation at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 50th Annual Meeting earlier this month, 30 patients were enrolled in the GALE-301 Phase 1 trial. Of 14 control patients, 7 (50%) have recurred. Of 16 vaccinated patients, 4 (25%) have recurred after completing the primary vaccine series (PVS), 2 (12.5%) recurred prior to completing the PVS, and one patient discontinued treatment. Of note, no recurrences have been seen thus far in the optimal dose cohort of 1,000 mcg of peptide. GALE-301 (Folate Binding Protein (FBP) vaccine): GALE-301 (Folate Binding Protein (FBP)) cancer immunotherapy is an investigational new drug targeting FBP, a well-validated therapeutic target, which is highly over-expressed in breast, ovarian and endometrial cancers. FBP is the source of immunogenic peptides that can stimulate cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) to recognize and destroy presenting FBP-expressing cancer cells. GALE-301 consists of the FBP peptide(s) combined with the immune adjuvant, granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF). GALE-301 has completed enrollment in a Phase 2a trial in two gynecological cancers: ovarian cancer and endometrial adenocarcinomas.
