Phase I Pilot Study of Ad5-CB-CFTR, an Adenovirus Vector Containing the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator Gene, in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the safety and efficacy of gene transfer into the nasal epithelium using Ad5-CB-CFTR, an E1-deleted adenovirus vector containing the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene, in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).
II. Determine whether ion transport abnormalities in CF airway cells can be corrected.
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Study Start Date:||January 1993|
Groups of 3 patients receive 1 of 4 doses of Ad5-CB-CFTR, a recombinant E1-deleted adenovirus serotype 5 vector containing the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene. Ad5-CB-CFTR is administered to 1 nasal cavity and the vehicle alone is administered to the opposite nasal cavity as the control.
