About the CAN-003 Clinical Trial
CAN-003 is a 63-patient phase 2 study evaluating the effects of CVac, as compared to an observational standard of care arm (OSC), in epithelial ovarian cancer patients in complete remission after first or second line treatment. In accordance with the protocol design, the first seven patients on the trial were all assigned to receive CVac in order to test the comparability of product manufacturing in a new facility.
The subsequent 56 patients were randomized 1:1 to either the CVac group or observational standard of care (OSC) and included in the intent-to-treat analysis. 36 patients were in first remission (19 patients were assigned to CVac and 17 to OSC) and 20 patients were in second remission (10 patients were each assigned to CVac or OSC). Final PFS data was analysed after thorough quality control reviews of investigator-evaluated progression and appropriate censoring of data from patients who had not progressed during the study.
The primary objectives of the trial are to determine the safety of CVac administration and to determine CVac's effect on progression-free survival. Secondary objectives of the trial are to determine CVac's effect of overall survival and to evaluate host immunologic responses to Cvac.
