Special Protocol Assessment Completed for Allovectin-7
The Phase 3, open-label, multi-center trial calls for enrollment of approximately 375 patients with recurrent metastatic melanoma. Patients may have been treated with surgery, adjuvant therapy, and/or biotherapy, but cannot have been treated with chemotherapy. The patients will be randomized on a 2:1 basis: approximately 250 patients will be treated with Allovectin-7 and approximately 125 will be treated with their physician's choice of either of two chemotherapy agents, dacarbazine or temozolomide. The primary endpoint is a comparison of objective response rates at 24 weeks or more after randomization. The study will also evaluate safety and tolerability.
"We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the FDA for a feasible trial design featuring achievable endpoints and providing a clear path to approval," said Mr. Samant. "Now we can advance in our discussions with potential partners and evaluate which, if any, is best positioned to assist with the further development and commercialization of Allovectin-7."
