Malignant glioma is one of the most common brain cancers in humans, which is very devastating. The expression of reduced expression in immortalized cells/Dickkopf-3 (REIC/Dkk-3) is decreased in various human cancers. Lately, we have developed a novel second-generation adenoviral vector that expresses REIC/Dkk-3 (Ad-SGE-REIC) and revealed its antiglioma efficacy. The present investigator-initiated clinical trial is a single-arm, prospective, nonrandomized, noncomparative, open-label, single-center trial performed at Okayama University Hospital, Okayama, Japan. The primary end points are dose-limiting toxicities and the incidence of adverse events. The secondary end points are the objective response rate and immunological assessment. Use of Ad-SGE-REIC will help to improve the prognosis of patients with malignant brain tumors.

: This study will assess the safety and efficacy of the administration of adenoviral vector expressing the human-reduced expression in immortalized cells (Ad-REIC) to a liver tumor in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver metastasis of pancreatic cancer. A Phase I clinical study of Ad-REIC administration to a liver tumor in a patient with HCC or liver metastasis of pancreatic cancer will be conducted. The study is a single-arm, prospective, nonrandomized, noncomparative, open-lab...

Poly (ADP-ribose) Polymerase (PARP) inhibitors are promising novel radiosensitisers. Pre-clinical models have demonstrated potent and tumour-specific radiosensitisation by PARP inhibitors. Olaparib is a PARP inhibitor with a favourable safety profile in comparison to clinically used radiosensitisers including cisplatin when used as single agent. However, data on safety, tolerability and efficacy of olaparib in combination with radiotherapy are limited. Olaparib is dose escalated in combination w...

Human interleukin-12 (hIL-12) is a cytokine with anticancer activity, but its systemic application is limited by toxic inflammatory responses. We assessed the safety and biological effects of an hIL-12 gene, transcriptionally regulated by an oral activator. A multicenter phase 1 dose-escalation trial (NCT02026271) treated 31 patients undergoing resection of recurrent high-grade glioma. Resection cavity walls were injected (day 0) with a fixed dose of the hIL-12 vector (Ad–RTS–hIL-12). The oral a...

Glioblastoma is the most common primary malignant brain tumor in adults and is associated with poor survival. The Ivy Foundation Early Phase Clinical Trials Consortium conducted a randomized, multi-institution clinical trial to evaluate immune responses and survival following neoadjuvant and/or adjuvant therapy with pembrolizumab in 35 patients with recurrent, surgically resectable glioblastoma. Patients who were randomized to receive neoadjuvant pembrolizumab, with continued adjuvant therapy fo...

Gliomas are primary malignancies of the brain. Tumors are staged based on malignancy, nuclear atypia, and infiltration of the surrounding brain parenchyma. Tumors are often diagnosed once patients become symptomatic, at which time the lesion is sizable. Glioblastoma (grade IV glioma) is highly aggressive and difficult to treat. Most tumors are diagnosed de novo. The gold standard of therapy, implemented over a decade ago, consists of fractionated radiotherapy and temozolomide, but unfortunately,...

ABSTRACT Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive malignant primary brain tumor. With an incidence rate of 3.19 per 100,000 persons in the United States and a median age of 64 years, it is uncommon in children. The incidence is 1.6 times higher in males compared to females and 2.0 times higher in Caucasians compared to Africans and Afro-Americans, with lower incidence in Asians and American Indians. GBM is commonly located in the supratentorial region (frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital...

The Wnt signaling pathway regulates crucial aspects such as cell fate determination, cell polarity and organogenesis during embryonic development. Wnt pathway deregulation is a hallmark of several cancers such as lung, gastric and liver cancer, and has been reported to be altered in others. Despite the general agreement reached by the scientific community on the oncogenic potential of the central components of the pathway, the role of the antagonist proteins remains less clear. Deregulation of t...
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) represents one of the most challenging malignancies due to many factors including invasiveness, heterogeneity, and an immunosuppressive microenvironment. Current treatment modalities have resulted in only modest effect on outcomes. The development of viral vectors for oncolytic immunovirotherapy and targeted drug delivery represents a promising therapeutic prospect for GBM and other brain tumors. A host of genetically engineered viruses, herpes simplex virus, poliov...
