Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial
A Safety And Efficacy Study Of HLA-G- Targeted CAR-T Cells IVS-3001 In Subjects With Previously Treated Advanced HLA-G-Positive Solid Tumors
The proposed clinical study is a Phase 1/2a trial to investigate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and clinical activity of anti-HLA-G CAR-T cells IVS-3001 administered to subjects with previously treated, locally advanced, or metastatic solid tumors which are HLA-G positive (HLA-G+) - as determined by immunohistochemistry (IHC) analysis on tumor biopsies using the 4H84 antibody.
IVS-3001 is an autologous CAR-T cell therapy targeting human leukocyte antigen (HLA-G)
Phase 1: To determine the safety, tolerability and the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of IVS-3001 in subjects with refractory or relapsed HLA-G+ solid tumors.
Phase 2a: To evaluate the anti-tumor activity of IVS-3001 in selected HLA-G+ solid tumor types.
To evaluate pharmacokinetic profile of IVS-3001: persistence, expansion.
To evaluate the clinical activity of IVS-3001 in selected HLA-G+ solid tumor types.
To assess the long-term safety of IVS-3001.
• To explore functionality of IVS-3001 as well as immune biomarkers linked with IVS-3001 and their relationship with clinical response
Age ≥18 years old.
Histologically or pathologically confirmed diagnosis of a locally advanced unresectable or metastatic HLA-G+ select solid tumor malignancy who failed or intolerant to standard of care therapies known to confer clinical benefit per treating physician.
For Phase 2a, eligible subjects will be enrolled into indication-specific cohorts:
Cohort 1: HLA-G+ clear cell renal cell carcinoma who failed or intolerant to checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) and tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)
Cohort 2: Epithelial ovarian carcinoma who failed or intolerant to platinum-based therapy, and should have failed or intolerant for PARP inhibitor if BRCA 1/2 mutated
Cohort 3: Other HLA-G+ tumors (biomarker driven) who failed or intolerant to at least one prior line of therapy and for whom at discretion of treating physician there is no standard therapy to confer a clinical benefit
HLA-G expression on tumor cells (any level of expression is acceptable) as determined by immunohistochemistry (IHC) analysis on tumor biopsies using the 4H84 antibody [1, 2]

From the time of Screening/Study Treatment ICF signature, male subjects with female partners of childbearing potential must agree to use 2 highly effective methods of birth control (Effectiveness of Contraception Methods, CDC 2018) for at least 12 months after the last dose of IVS-3001.
Subjects who meet any of the following criteria are NOT eligible for the study.
Immunotherapy at enrollment and after. Note: Bridging therapies (including herbal therapies) other than immunotherapies are allowed from cell harvest to 2 weeks before lymphodepletion (5 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin) or 5 half-lives, whichever is shorter and must be reported in the CRF.
Palliative radiotherapy is permitted but treatment must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to the start of lymphodepletion.
