LUMINOS-103: A Basket Trial Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Lerapolturev (PVSRIPO) and Lerapolturev in Combination With Anti-PD-1/L1 Checkpoint Inhibitors in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors


About the study

This is a Phase 1/2, open-label, multi-center, single arm basket study evaluating the administration of lerapolturev ± anti programmed cell death protein 1 (PD 1)/programmed death-ligand 1 (PD L1) monoclonal antibody (mAb) (which will be referred to throughout this protocol as "anti-PD-1/L1 therapy") therapy in adult patients with solid tumor cancers. Non-muscle invasive Bladder Cancer has been selected as the tumor specific cancer of interest for enrollment.

  6. Measurable disease per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 is NOT required. This is an exception to the inclusion criterion outlined in the master protocol.


Master Protocol Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Any radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, biological, investigational, or hormonal therapy for cancer treatment (except for adjuvant hormonal therapy for breast cancer or prostate cancer defined as M0 disease or prostate-specific antigen persistence/recurrence without metastatic disease) within 21 days of Cycle 1 Day 1.
  2. Patients requiring anticoagulation with warfarin are excluded. Additional eligibility criteria for anticoagulation requirements for each solid tumor cancer of interest will be provided in the tumor specific appendix.
  3. Presence of central nervous system (CNS) metastases requiring immediate treatment with radiation therapy or steroids (ie, patient must be off steroids administered for brain metastases for ≥ 14 days prior to Cycle Day 1). Leptomeningeal disease is excluded regardless of clinical stability or treatment status.
  4. Clinically significant (ie, active) cardiovascular disease at the time of signing the informed consent; for example, cerebrovascular accidents (≤ 6 months before the first dose of lerapolturev, myocardial infarction (≤ 6 months before the first dose of lerapolturev), unstable angina, serious cardiac arrythmia requiring medication, or uncontrolled symptomatic congestive heart failure [Class II or higher as defined by the New York Heart Association [NYHA] functional classification system; see Appendix 4]).
