08:24 EDTHTBXHeat Biologics amends bladder cancer protocol for early advancement into Phase 2
Heat Biologics announced that it has amended the Phase 1/2 clinical protocol for Vesigenurtacel-L in patients with high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer after transurethral resection of bladder tumor, or TURBT. The modified treatment regimen facilitates a more robust dose-response analysis and will permit Heat to advance directly into Phase 2 trials following enrollment of a single cohort of Phase 1 data rather than the two cohorts required by the original trial design. Heat expects to complete enrollment of the Phase 1 portion of the study in Q3 and anticipates the Phase 2 study will commence in Q4, one quarter earlier than initially expected. The original Phase 1/2 bladder cancer trial protocol called for evaluation of two doses of monotherapy Vesigenurtacel-L after induction bacillus Calmette Guérin, or BCG, to assess initial safety and determine the best dose to advance to Phase 2. The amended protocol changes the treatment regimen from monotherapy Vesigenurtacel-L following BCG to combination with BCG based on proposed synergy with the combination. This new regimen will start treatment with Vesigenurtacel-L earlier in the disease process and enable concurrent administration of BCG and HS-410 throughout the adjuvant therapy period. Furthermore, the revision advances both doses into Phase 2 to correlate the dose with recurrence rate. Heat's management team worked closely in consultation with its Clinical Advisory Board to develop this combination study with a clinically more meaningful and efficient design. The protocol revision is expected to allow for expedited advancement into Phase 2 and is accompanied by robust safety evaluation during the Phase 2 study. In the first seven patients treated to date, there have been no reported serious adverse events.

07:09 EDTHTBXHeat Biologics reports HS-410 Phase 2 trial placed on clinical hold by FDA
Heat Biologics announced that the company has recently concluded that the cell line on which HS-410 is based had been previously misidentified. Heat has advised the FDA of this conclusion, and the FDA has placed Heat's HS-410 Phase 2 clinical trial on partial clinical hold while they review the updated documentation provided by Heat. Heat believes the partial clinical hold does not relate to concerns regarding the safety of HS-410. All currently enrolled patients can continue receiving HS-410 treatment, or comparator drugs, as per the current study protocol, but no new patients can be enrolled in Heat's open-label, monotherapy arm until the partial clinical hold is lifted. Heat will amend all necessary documents including the related investigator brochure, study protocol and informed consent document. Heat is working diligently in collaboration with the FDA to resume enrollment in its clinical trial. Heat has confirmed that HS-410 drug product has remained consistent throughout all clinical trials and anticipates continuing development of HS-410 for the treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, or NMIBC, with the existing cell line, contingent upon FDA's removal of the partial clinical hold. All data generated and reported to date remains unchanged, including HS-410's positive safety profile, immune response and shared antigenic profile with patient tumors. Heat anticipates that the partial clinical hold will be resolved quickly and that enrollment timelines for its Phase 2 trial evaluating HS-410 either alone or in combination with standard of care, Bacillus Calmette-Guerin, or BCG, for the treatment of NMIBC will remain materially unchanged. As previously announced, Heat completed enrollment for the trial's randomized, combination arms in October 2015 and continues to expect to report topline efficacy, immune-response and safety data in Q4.
