Takara Bio Completes Enrollment for Phase I Clinical Trial in the US for HF10 Anti-Cancer Therapy
 

Tokyo, Apr 10, 2014 (JCN) - Takara Bio Inc. announced that as of April 4 it had completed enrollment of a Phase I clinical trial of HF10 in patients with solid tumors in the US; 28 patients enrolled and 22 patients evaluable. A phase II clinical trial in the US is now under preparation so that it will start soon.

This trial is an open label, non-randomized, multicenter, two-stage, dose escalation Phase I study evaluating single and repeated intratumoral injections of the oncolytic virus, HF10, in patients with refractory head and neck cancer, or solid tumors with cutaneous and/or superficial lesions (e.g., squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, carcinoma of the breast, and malignant melanoma).

It is observed that treatment with intratumorally-injected HF10 has been well tolerated in multiple types of solid tumor malignancies. Takara Bio aims to commercialize the HF10 anti-cancer therapy by the fiscal year ending in March 2019.
