A Study of Ad-RTS-hIL-12 With Veledimex in Subjects With Glioblastoma or Malignant Glioma
This research study involves an investigational product: Ad-RTS-hIL-12 given with veledimex for production of human IL-12. IL-12 is a protein that can improve the body's natural response to disease by enhancing the ability of the immune system to kill tumor cells and may interfere with blood flow to the tumor. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single tumor injection of Ad-RTS-hIL-12 given with oral veledimex.
A Phase I Study of Ad-RTS-hIL-12, an Inducible Adenoviral Vector Engineered to Express hIL-12 in the Presence of the Activator Ligand Veledimex in Subjects With Recurrent or Progressive Glioblastoma or Grade III Malignant Glioma
Eligible patients will be stratified to one of two groups, according to clinical indication for tumor resection. Patients who are scheduled for a standard of care craniotomy and tumor resection will receive one dose of veledimex before the resection procedure. Ad-RTS-hIL-12 will be administered by free-hand injection. Patients will continue on oral veledimex for 14 days.
Patients not scheduled for tumor resection will receive Ad-RTS-hIL-12 by stereotactic injection and then will continue on oral veledimex for 14 days.
The study is divided into three periods: the screening period, the treatment period and the follow-up period.

- Karnofsky Performance Status ≥ 70
- Adequate bone marrow reserves and liver and kidney function, as assessed by the following laboratory requirements:
- Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/L
- Lymphocytes > 500/ mm3
- Absolute Neutrophil Count ≥ 1500/ mm3
- Platelets ≥ 100,000/ mm3
- Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN
- AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 x ULN. For subjects with documented liver metastases, ALT and AST ≤ 5 × ULN
- Total bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN
- International Normalized Ratio (INR) and activated Partial Thromboplastin Time[PTT] within normal institutional limits
- Male and female subjects must agree to use a highly reliable method of birth control(expected failure rate less than 5% per year) from the screening visit through 28 days after the last dose of study drug. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening.
