Breast Cancer Clinical Trial

Examining Bioactivity of PVSRIPO in Invasive Breast Cancer

Summary

This is a pilot study to examine PVSRIPO bioactivity in tumor tissue after intratumoral administration of PVSRIPO in women with invasive breast cancer.

Full Description

The study drug PVSRIPO is the live attenuated, oral (Sabin) serotype 1 poliovirus vaccine containing a heterologous internal ribosomal entry site (IRES) derived from the human rhinovirus type 2 (HRV2). The purpose of this pilot study is to examine PVSRIPO bioactivity in tumor tissue after intratumoral administration of PVSRIPO in women with invasive breast cancer. The hypothesis is that administration of PVSRIPO in the tumor causes inflammation, which stimulates innate and adaptive immune activation in invasive breast cancer. Enrollment target will include six women with invasive breast cancer. Women with stage II-IV invasive breast cancer with at least 1 cm of residual tumor after chemotherapy and scheduled for standard of care surgery will be eligible.

The objective of the study is to investigate PVSRIPO-mediated inflammation and immunity in women invasive breast cancer. The primary exploratory objective is to describe the change in the amount of tumor infiltrating immune cells in tumor tissue pre- and post-injection of PVSRIPO by H&E (Haemotoxylin and Eosin).

Other exploratory objectives are: 1.) to examine tumor tissue pre- and post-injection of PVSRIPO for inflammatory and immune signature using arrays, CD155 expression by immunohistochemistry (IHC), immune cell infiltrate by IHC and tumor infiltrating immune cells using flow cytometry (post-injection only); and 2) To examine blood for inflammatory and immune signature using arrays, immune cell composition (antigen presenting cells, B cells and T cells), T cell activation by flow cytometry and B cell activation by ELISA and peptide arrays. Blood will be collected on day -7 (before polio vaccine booster), day 0 (before PVSRIPO injection), day 2 (after PVSRIPO), day 14 (after PVSRIPO before surgery), and in follow-up at months 1 and 6 post-PVSRIPO.

Eligibility Criteria

This pilot study will include women with stage II-IV ER/PR/HER2 negative (triple negative) breast cancer scheduled to undergo surgical resection.

Inclusion Criteria:

Age ≥ 18 years

Confirmation of invasive breast cancer including any of the following:

Triple-negative breast cancer defined as receptor status being estrogen receptor expression ≤ 10%, progesterone receptor expression ≤ 10%, and HER2/Neu expression by IHC 0 or 1+, or 2+ with fluorescence in situ hybridization confirming no amplification of HER2 on a pretreatment tumor sample.
Hormone positive breast cancer defined as receptor status being estrogen receptor expression > 10%, progesterone receptor expression > 10% prior to initiation of chemotherapy.
HER2+ breast cancer defined as HER2/Neu expression by IHC 3+ or fluorescence in situ hybridization confirming amplification of HER2 on a pretreatment tumor sample prior to initiation of chemotherapy. HER2+ and hormone positive (ie triple positive) breast cancers are included in this study.
Stage II-III invasive breast cancer with ≥ 1 cm of residual tumor based on MRI, mammogram, ultrasound, or breast clinical exam as SOC after completion of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, OR Stage IV BC with ≥ 1 cm locally recurrent disease (i.e. chest wall recurrence only)
ECOG ≤ 1
Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dl, ANC ≥ 1,500 cells/µl, platelets ≥ 100,000 cells/µl
Women must have had last dose of chemotherapy at least 3 weeks prior to treatment with PVSRIPO
Women must have at least 2 weeks minimum (ideal 3-4 weeks) of a wash-out period after any steroid administration (IV, PO, or intraocular)
Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 mg/dl, serum SGOT and bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times ULN (upper limit of normal)
Women must provide written informed consent prior to enrollment on study, prior to conduct of screening procedures and enrollment on study
Women of childbearing potential will have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening
Women of childbearing potential must be willing to avoid pregnancy for the course of the study through 120 days after PVSRIPO injection
Surgical resection of the tumor is planned and patient is willing to undergo surgical resection of the cancer

Exclusion Criteria:

T1 N0 invasive breast cancer
