Brief Summary:
Phase II study investigating the safety, tolerability and effect on disease reccurence of Foxy-5 as neo-adjuvant therapy in resected colon cancer patients treated with FOLFOX chemotherapy regimen. It is a two-arm study and patients will be randomised to receive either standard therapy (surgery + FOLFOX 6 months regimen) or standard therapy + neo-adjuvant administration of Foxy-5 prior to- and following surgery (maximum of 39 administrations) until initiation of FOLFOX therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colon Cancer Drug: Foxy-5 Drug: FOLFOX regimen Procedure: Tumour resection (colon cancer surgery) Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Foxy-5 is a synthetic hexapeptide with a formylated N-terminus, derived from the protein sequence of the Wnt-5a protein. Low/no expression levels of Wnt-5 protein in primary tumour cells have been correlated to high risk of recurrent metastatic disease and shortened survival in several different types of cancer patients, including colon cancer.

Current standard therapy involves surgical removal of the tumour followed by 6 months treatment with chemotherapy (FOLFOX). Foxy-5 is expected to decrease migration of cancer cells, in subjects with low/absent levels of Wnt-5a protein in their primary tumour and hence result in lower recurrence and a better overall survival. The trial intends to establish the safety and tolerability of Foxy-5 and to evaluate early signs of anti-metastatic activity in subjects with resectable colon cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [Safety and Tolerability] [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until 28 days after the last dose of Foxy-5, assessed up to 120 days ]
    The incidence of adverse events (AEs) related to Foxy-5 administration of Grade 3 and higher according to the National Cancer Institute - Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE, version 5.0) and the Clavien-Dindo classification of surgical complications. cancer.

  2. ctDNA as surrogate marker for disease free period [ Time Frame: 2 years after resection of colon cancer ]
    The level of ctDNA in plasma of subjects with Wnt-5a low colon cancer as a surrogate parameter for disease recurrence in subjects with Wnt-5a low colon cancer treated with Foxy-5 compared to subjects with Wnt-5a low colon cancer who are in the Control Arm.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 2 years after resection of tumour ]
    OS at 2 years after resection of the colon cancer

  2. Disease-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years after resection of tumour ]
    DFS at 2 years after resection of the colon cancer

  3. Recurrence-Free Interval [ Time Frame: study start to 2 years after resection of tumour ]
    Recurrence-free interval (RFI) defined as the time from randomization to tumour recurrence.

  4. ctDNA in Wnt-5a high patients [ Time Frame: 2 years after resection of tumour ]
    The level of ctDNA in plasma of subjects with Wnt-5a high colon cancer.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Thymidine Kinase activity [ Time Frame: 1 year after resection of tumour ]
    The level of thymidine kinase activity in serum in relationship to Wnt- 5a expression in the tumour.
