The purpose of this phase 3, randomized, multicenter study is to compare VB-111 and paclitaxel to placebo and paclitaxel in adult patients with Recurrent Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer.

Official Title

A Randomized, Controlled, Double-Arm, Double-Blind, Multi-Center Study of Ofranergene Obadenovec (VB-111) Combined With Paclitaxel vs. Paclitaxel Combined With Placebo for the Treatment of Recurrent Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer


Recurrent Platinum Resistant Ovarian Cancer, Recurrent Ovarian cancer, Platinum resistant ovarian cancer, Ovarian cancer, Ovarian carcinoma, Epithelial ovarian cancer, paclitaxel, Ovarian Neoplasms, Carcinoma, Ovarian Epithelial, Recurrence, Albumin-Bound Paclitaxel, VB-111 + Paclitaxel


You can join if…

Open to females ages 18 years and up

  1. Female patients ≥18 years of age
  2. Histologically confirmed epithelial ovarian cancer and documented disease.
  3. Patients must have platinum-resistant disease
  4. Patients must have disease that is measurable according to RECIST 1.1 and require chemotherapy treatment.
  5. ECOG PS 0-1.
  6. Adequate hematological functions:
  7. ANC ≥ 1000/mm3
  8. PLT ≥ 100,000/mm3
  9. PT and PTT (seconds) < 1.2 X ULN. Patients who are anticoagulated do not need to meet criteria for PT and PTT.
  10. Patients who are known to carry a BRCA mutation may be enrolled only after (following PARP inhibitor treatment failure, or being intolerant of, or ineligible for PARP inhibitor treatment).

You CAN'T join if...

  1. Non-epithelial tumors (Carcino-sarcomas are excluded)
  2. Ovarian tumors with low malignant potential (i.e. borderline tumors) clear cell carcinomas, grade 1 serous tumors or mucinous tumors.
  3. History of other clinically active malignancy within 5 years of enrollment, except for tumors with a negligible risk for metastasis or death, such as adequately controlled basal-cell carcinoma, adequately controlled, non-metastatic squamous-cell carcinoma of the skin, or carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast.
  4. Previous ovarian cancer treatment with >5 anticancer regimens.
  5. Any prior radiotherapy to the pelvis or whole abdomen.
  6. Inadequate liver function, defined as serum creatinine > ULN, unless calculated creatinine clearance > 50ml/min (by Cockroft & Gault formula):
  7. Serum (total) bilirubin > ULN (Exception: documented Gilbert's disease patients can be enrolled)
  8. Alkaline phosphatase, AST/SGOT or ALT/SGPT ≥2.5 x ULN (or ≥ 5 x ULN in the presence of liver metastases).
  9. Inadequate renal function, defined as:
  10. Serum creatinine > ULN OR
  11. Calculated creatinine clearance < 50ml/min (by Cockroft & Gault formula)
  12. New York Heart Association (NYHA) Grade II or greater congestive heart failure
  13. History of myocardial infarction or unstable angina within 6 months prior to day of randomization.
  14. . History of stroke or transient ischemic attack within 6 months prior to day of randomization.
  15. . Patient with proliferative and/or vascular retinopathy
  16. . Known brain metastases
  17. . History of hemoptysis or active GI bleeding within 6 month prior to day of randomization
  18. . Evidence of bleeding diathesis or significant coagulopathy (in the absence of therapeutic anticoagulation).
  19. . History of abdominal fistula or gastrointestinal perforation.
  20. . Current signs and symptoms of bowel obstruction
  21. . Uncontrolled active infection
  22. . Patients who had evidence of disease progression during or up to 90 days from the last dose of the first line of platinum based therapy
