Tocagen Presents Preliminary Data from Toca 6 Trial Supportive of Immune Activation in Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors at CRI-CIMT-EATI-AACR International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference
The poster describes data available as of
In this preliminary analysis of immune activation in patients with advanced solid tumors, analysis of peripheral blood shows immune cell modulation that is consistent with what has been observed in preclinical studies and in patients with recurrent high grade glioma treated with Toca 511 & Toca FC in previous clinical trials. In addition, available tumor samples from three patients show Toca 511 infected both "hot" (T cells present) and "cold" (T cells low or absent) areas of metastatic tumor, suggesting Toca 511 can penetrate multiple tumor microenvironments. Toca 511 & Toca FC treatment was well tolerated.
"The encouraging preliminary immune activity data from the Toca 6 trial continue to support the proposed mechanism of action for Toca 511 & Toca FC and its potentbiial in the treatment of multiple cancers," said

About Toca 6
Toca 6 is a multi-center, open-label Phase 1b study evaluating Toca 511 & Toca FC in patients with advanced solid tumors. The study will evaluate the safety and presence of Toca 511 genes in tumors of patients with widely disseminated disease, immunologic activity in blood and tumor, and clinical activity such as tumor response and clinical benefit. More information can be found at www.tocagen.com/toca6 or by searching clinicaltrials.gov using the clinical trial identifier NCT02576665.
About Toca 511 & Toca FC
Tocagen is a clinical-stage, cancer-selective gene therapy company developing first-in-class, broadly applicable product candidates designed to activate a patient's immune system against their own cancer. Tocagen's lead investigational product candidate, Toca 511 & Toca FC, is under evaluation in a pivotal Phase 3 trial for recurrent high grade glioma (HGG), a disease with significant unmet medical need.
