NEWS -- Provectus Biopharmaceuticals Announces Presentation of Meta-Analysis Results of Single-Agent PV-10® in Stage III Cutaneous Melanoma at Society for Melanoma Research (SMR) 2021
  • 184 patients: 44.9 months median overall survival
  • 774 PV-10-injected lesions (121 patients): 56% complete response
KNOXVILLE, TN, Nov. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Provectus (OTCQB: PVCT) today announced that results from a meta-analysis of response, survival, and safety data from the Company’s Phase 2 and 3 clinical trials (NCT00521053 and NCT02288897, respectively) and expanded access program (EAP) (NCT01260779) of single-agent cancer immunotherapy PV-10 (rose bengal disodium) for the treatment of Stage III cutaneous melanoma was presented at the SMR 2021 Virtual Congress (the Society for Melanoma Research annual meeting), which was held online from October 28th to 31st.

A copy of the poster presentation is available on Provectus’ website at https://www.provectusbio.com/media/docs/publications/SMR-2021-PV-10-in-Stage-III-Melanoma.21Oct2021.pdf.

Highlights of the SMR 2021 presentation:
  • Baseline characteristics
    • Efficacy evaluable population (EEP)
      • 121 clinical trial and EAP patients; 88% in-transit melanoma
      • 55% male; median age of 71 years (range 33-97)
      • 744 PV-10-injected lesions
    • Clinical evaluable population (CEP)
      • 57 EAP patients
      • 422 PV-10-injected lesions
  • Safety (104 patients)
    • Adverse events were predominantly transient, locoregional to the PV-10-injection site, and mild-to-moderate grade
  • Injected-lesion response
    • Efficacy evaluable population
      • 56% complete response (CR), 64% objective response rate (ORR), 78% disease control rate (DCR)
    • Clinical evaluable population
      • 56% CR, 65% ORR, 91% DCR
  • Time-to-event metrics (EEP)
    • Time-to-response (TTR): median 2.4 months, mean 2.6, range 0.7-12
    • Time-to-progression (TTP): median not reached
    • Time-to-treatment failure (TTF): median not reached
  • Survival (184 patients)
    • Overall survival (OS): median 44.9 months
    • Disease-specific survival (DSS): median 53.8 months[/list
Dominic Rodrigues, Vice Chair of the Company’s Board of Directors, said, “For a Stage III cutaneous melanoma patient population with unique locoregional disease characteristics having a serious condition and facing an unmet medical need, these PV-10 data unequivocally display a positive risk-benefit profile: rapid response to PV-10 treatment, a high injected-lesion complete response rate, and an attractive safety profile.”

Mr. Rodrigues added, “This meta-analysis represents approximately 12 years, 185 patients, and 1,200 lesions worth of PV-10 data. The results categorically quantify a robust response of Stage III melanoma lesions to intralesional PV-10 treatment that is temporally consistent and reproducible across multiple different countries, sites, principal investigators, and study protocols. The data compare very favorably with those reported for drug products approved for Stage III melanoma, such as oncolytic virus and immune checkpoint blockade therapies.”

About PV-10

Intralesional (IL) administration of PV-10 for the treatment of solid tumor cancers can yield immunogenic cell death within hours of tumor injection, and induce tumor-specific reactivity in circulating T cells within days. This PV-10-induced functional T cell response may be enhanced and boosted in combination with immune checkpoint blockade (CB). In CB-refractory advanced cutaneous melanoma, PV-10 may restore disease-specific T cell function. IL PV-10 has been administered to over 450 patients with cancers of the skin and of the liver. It is administered under visual, tactile, or ultrasound guidance to superficial malignancies, and under CT or ultrasound guidance to visceral hepatic tumors. IL PV-10 is also undergoing preclinical study for pediatric solid tumor cancers (including neuroblastoma, Ewing sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and osteosarcoma).

Systemic administration of PV-10 is undergoing preclinical study as prophylactic and therapeutic treatments for high-risk and refractory adult solid tumor cancers, and as a treatment for relapsed and refractory blood cancers.

Different formulations and routes of administration of PV-10 and rose bengal disodium are also undergoing clinical and/or preclinical study in virology, microbiology, ophthalmology, dermatology, and animal health.
