TG4010 is an immunotherapy that has been designed to express the coding sequences of the MUC1 tumor-associated antigen and the cytokine, Interleukin-2 (IL2) in a modified Vaccinia virus (MVA).
The combination of TG4010 immunotherapy and chemotherapy has demonstrated significant efficacy in terms of progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with advanced stage NSCLC (Quoix et al. Lancet Oncol. 2015). TG4010 is currently being investigated in combination with nivolumab (ICI) for the 2nd-line treatment of advanced NSCLC (NCT02823990). A trial in 1st-line treatment of NSCLC is expected to begin at the end of 2017, evaluating the combination regimen of TG4010 + nivolumab + chemotherapy in patients whose tumors express low or undetectable levels of PD-L1.
