Clinical Trial DRUG STML-701-0114
- A Phase 1/2 Study of SL-701, a Subcutaneously Injected Multivalent Glioma-Associated Antigen Vaccine, in Adult Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
- Principal Investigator
- Priya Kumthekar
- Status: CLOSED
- Study Type: Therapeutic, Treatment
- Protocol No:.DRUG STML-701-0114
- The goal of this research study is to establish the safety and tolerability of the drug SL-701, and to determine its effects on patients with recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) tumors.
- SL-701 is an experimental medication. This means that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved SL-701. SL-701 is an anti-cancer immunotherapy that uses 3 different short proteins, called “peptides,” that are found in certain brain tumors. The immunotherapy is designed to activate the immune system to recognize and kill brain-tumor cells that display proteins similar to the peptides in SL-701.
Some of the eligibility criteria include:
- Participants must be 18 years of age or older.
- Participants must have tumor recurrence (cancer came back) or progression (cancer is worsening)after initial (first) treatment.
- Participants who received prior cancer chemotherapy with bevacizumab or other VEGF-VEGFR-directed agents (check with the study doctor for any exclusions) cannot participate in this study.
- Description of Treatment
- Participants will receive SL-701 as an injection (shot by needle) along with an additional medication that will make the immune response stronger. This additional medication (poly-ICLC) is referred to as an adjuvant. Participants will also receive bevacizumab (approved by the FDA for the treatment of GBM) in combination with SL-701 and poly-ICLC. To receive study treatment, participants will come to the study center two times per week for the first 2 weeks, every week for the next 2 weeks, and every 2 weeks thereafter through Week 22. After Week 22, participants will come to the clinic every 4 weeks to receive SL-701 and poly-ICLC injections. Bevacizumab will continue to be given every 2 weeks after Week 22.
