Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Phase III Study of DCVAC/PCa Added to Standard Chemotherapy for Men With Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized, Double Blind, Multicenter, Parallel-group, Phase III Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of DCVAC/PCa Versus Placebo in Men With Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Eligible for 1st Line Chemotherapy
Brief Summary The VIABLE study sought to confirm the hypothesis that the combination of docetaxel with DCVAC/PCa followed by a maintenance therapy with DCVAC/PCa would improve overall survival in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.
Detailed Description This was a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, international, parallel-group phase III study. Patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who were candidates to receive standard of care first-line chemotherapy with docetaxel plus prednisone were randomized 2:1 into one of two arms: an investigational arm (DCVAC/PCa) and a control arm (placebo) in addition to chemotherapy (docetaxel plus prednisone).
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 3
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Biological: DCVAC/PCa
    DCVAC/PCa concurrently with docetaxel plus prednisone every 3 weeks (± 7 days). DCVAC/PCa was administered at least 7 days before or and at least 7 days after the nearest chemotherapy (days 8-15 of chemotherapy cycles). After discontinuation of chemotherapy for any reason, each following dose of DCVAC/PCa was given every 4 weeks (-7/+14 days) for up to a total of 15 doses.
    Other Name: Stapuldencel
  • Biological: Placebo
    Placebo concurrently with docetaxel plus prednisone every 3 weeks (± 7 days). Placebo was administered at least 7 days before or and at least 7 days after the nearest chemotherapy (days 8-15 of chemotherapy cycles). After discontinuation of chemotherapy for any reason, each following dose of placebo was given every 4 weeks (-7/+14 days) for up to a total of 15 doses.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: DCVAC/PCa with standard of care chemotherapy
    Combination therapy with DCVAC/PCa and standard of care chemotherapy (docetaxel and prednisone)
    Intervention: Biological: DCVAC/PCa
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo with standard of care chemotherapy
    Combination therapy with placebo and standard of care chemotherapy (docetaxel and prednisone) as comparator
    Intervention: Biological: Placebo

  • Treatment with anti-androgens, inhibitors of adrenal-produced androgens or other hormonal tumor-focused treatment performed on the day of randomization (except for GnRH/LHRH agonists or antagonists) to exclude possible anti-androgen withdrawal response. This criterion is not applicable to subjects who have never responded to anti-androgen treatment, as there is no risk of anti-androgen withdrawal response.
  • Treatment with immunotherapy against PCa within 6 months before randomization.
  • Treatment with radiopharmaceutical within 8 weeks before randomization.
  • Participation in a clinical trial using non-immunological experimental therapy within 4 weeks before randomization.
