Candel Therapeutics Announces Oral Presentation of Updated Data from its Phase 1 Clinical Trial of CAN-3110 in 41 Patients with Recurrent High-Grade Glioma at the Society for Neuro-Oncology 27th Annual Meeting
- CAN-3110 designed to limit replication and promote anti-tumor response to tumor cells while protecting healthy tissue
- No dose-limiting toxicities observed in 41 patients with recurrent high-grade glioma (rHGG)
- Median overall survival was 11.6 months after a single injection of CAN-3110 in patients with rHGG; one patient achieved a complete response lasting more than one year
- CAN-3110 observed to activate lymphocyte-depleted tumor microenvironment in rHGG, with changes in T cell receptor repertoire associated with survival
Excerpt from the Press Release:
NEEDHAM, Mass., Nov. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Candel Therapeutics, Inc. (“Candel” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq: CADL), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel viral immunotherapies, today announced presentation of updated data from a phase 1 clinical trial of CAN-3110 in patients with recurrent high-grade glioma (rHGG). An overview of this data will be presented in-person at the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) 27th Annual Meeting today starting at 5:30 pm ET in Tampa, Florida.
Data will be reported from 41 patients who were administered CAN-3110, with 40 patients having received a single injection and one patient having received two injections. There were no dose-limiting toxicities. The median overall survival was 11.6 months. In-depth biomarker analyses show a statistically significant expansion of activated CD4+ and CD8+ T cells effector cells in multiple tumor lesions following a single injection of CAN-3110. Diversity of the T cell receptor repertoire after CAN-3110 administration was reported to be associated with overall survival. Next, the Company will examine whether multiple injections of CAN-3110 over time could lead to further improvement in overall survival (NCT03152318, clinicaltrials.gov).
“Patients with high-grade glioma whose cancer has recurred following initial standard of care treatments face a daunting challenge, with most succumbing to their disease within months due to a lack of effective therapies,” said Paul Peter Tak, MD, PhD, FMedSci, President and Chief Executive Officer of Candel Therapeutics. “We believe CAN-3110 is the first HSV-based viral immunotherapy candidate designed to leverage the ICP34.5 gene, which plays a key role in the viral anti-host response.
