CV7202

Rabies

CV7202 – Phase 1

CV7202 is a prophylactic mRNA-based vaccine encoding the rabies virus glycoprotein, RABV-G, formulated with next generation lipid nanoparticle (LNP).

CV7202 is currently being studied in a phase 1, dose-escalation, open-label clinical trial.

Study objectives:

  • Primary: Safety, reactogenicity
  • Secondary: Potential protective immune response, immunogenicity via geometric mean virus neutralization tests (VNT)

Rabies, a viral disease that causes inflammation in the brain, still occurs in more than 150 countries around the globe, with the infection responsible for more than 60,000 deaths every year, primarily in China and India.

More information about the CV7202 study can be found at ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT03713086).

CV8102

Cutaneous melanoma, adenoidcystic carcinoma, squamous cell cancer of skin, head and neck

CV8102 (Study 1) – Phase 1

CV8102, a TLR7/8/RIG-1 agonist based on noncoding single stranded RNA, is designed to modulate the tumor microenvironment after intratumoral injection and to induce a systemic immune response to control injected as well as non-injected distant lesions.

CV8102 is currently being studied in a Phase 1, open-label, dose escalation and expansion study, which is enrolling patients with advanced melanoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck, or adenoidcystic carcinoma, and superficially injectable tumor lesions.

The trial is testing escalating doses of single agent CV8102 and CV8102 in combination with licensed anti-PD-1 antibodies.

Study objectives:

  • Primary: Safety, tolerability
  • Secondary: Clinical efficacy, changes in various immune parameters in blood and tumor tissue

CV9202 (BI 1361849) – Phase 1

CV9202 (BI 1361849), a self-adjuvanting mRNA vaccine, targets six antigens commonly expressed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). CV9202 is currently being studied in a Phase 1/2, open-label 2-arm clinical trial to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of the addition of a vaccine therapy to one or two checkpoint inhibitors for NSCLC.

The clinical trial is in collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim and the Ludwig Cancer Research Institute.

Study objectives:

  • Primary: Safety and tolerability
  • Secondary: Objective response rate (ORR), PFS (progression free survival)

More information about the CV9202 study can be found at ClinicalTrials.gov.

CV9202 was previously studied in a Phase 1b clinical trial, which assessed the safety and tolerability of CV9202 vaccination in combination with local radiation designed to enhance immune responses in patients with NSCLC.
