Hope to Eradicate Lung Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, and Various Solid Tumors! China’s First Self-Replicating mRNA Vaccine JCXH-211 Successfully Launched~

mRNA Vaccine

mRNA Vaccine

Tumor immunotherapy, as an emerging method for diagnosing and treating tumors, has garnered widespread attention since its inception. Prior to the advent of tumor immunotherapy, the clinical treatment of solid tumors relied solely on traditional surgical removal, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Although these methods were effective, they came with significant drawbacks such as drug side effects and the risk of recurrence.

Since the 1990s, mRNA vaccines have been considered therapeutic vaccines. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, mRNA vaccines were used in clinical treatments, saving countless lives. Today, as the advantages of mRNA vaccines are gradually being discovered, they are now applied in multiple fields.

The advent of China’s first self-replicating mRNA vaccine JCXH-211 undoubtedly marks a new breakthrough in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of various solid tumors in China.

**What is the mRNA Vaccine JCXH-211?**

JCXH-211 is the world’s first self-replicating RNA drug encoding human interleukin-12 (IL-12) to enter clinical trials. This srRNA vaccine delivers mRNA encoding IL-12 into the cytoplasm, continuously expressing IL-12 to enhance the body’s immune response against tumor cells.

In preclinical studies involving various mouse and PDX disease models, JCXH-211 has shown the ability to effectively kill tumor cells, eliminate distant tumors, and prevent tumor recurrence. Comprehensive GLP toxicology studies have also demonstrated good safety.

JCXH-211 has a broad range of indications and is expected to effectively treat multiple solid tumors. The anticipated prospects are as follows:

**1. Lung Cancer:**

As one of the leading causes of cancer death worldwide, lung cancer is often diagnosed at a late stage due to difficulties in early detection. JCXH-211, through continuous expression of IL-12 and activation of immune cells, is expected to effectively control the growth and spread of lung cancer cells.

**2. Colorectal Cancer:**

Current clinical treatments for colorectal cancer primarily involve surgery and radiotherapy/chemotherapy, which can remove visible tumors but have a high recurrence rate. Periodic administration of JCXH-211 may significantly reduce recurrence and improve patient survival.

**3. Soft Tissue/Chondrosarcoma:**

These tumors are highly invasive and cover a wide range of areas, often affecting surrounding soft tissues and progressing rapidly. Current treatments are limited to surgery and radiotherapy/chemotherapy, which, although somewhat effective, are not thorough, leading to high recurrence rates. JCXH-211 could become a new treatment method, enhancing the body’s immune response to combat these stubborn cancer cells.

**4. Skin Cancer:**

Clinical treatments for skin cancer mainly include surgery and radiotherapy. While most skin cancers have a good prognosis, the effects on intractable melanoma are poor. The expression of IL-12 can activate specific T cells, greatly aiding in the elimination of melanoma cells.

**High-Efficiency Activation and Safety of the mRNA Vaccine JCXH-211!**

mRNA vaccines not only encode antigens to induce specific immune responses against tumors but also possess inherent immunostimulatory properties. This dual mechanism allows JCXH-211 to activate the immune system more efficiently, enhancing the overall anti-tumor effect.

Moreover, the safety of mRNA vaccines is well-recognized. Since DNA is the genetic material of most species, including humans and viruses, and is transcribed into mRNA before being translated into proteins to perform functions in the body, injecting mRNA into the human body does not enter the cell nucleus, thereby eliminating the risk of genomic insertion mutations. Additionally, mRNA can be naturally degraded and excreted from the body, preventing accumulation. Thus, JCXH-211 presents lower potential risks and is safer.

Currently, clinical trials are progressing steadily. With the rapid advancement of tumor immunotherapy, JCXH-211 is expected to become a standard treatment for various solid tumors, offering hope to many cancer patients.

Haematologica Spotlight:A Chinese team published the largest-scale pediatric-style regimen treatment for adult Ph-negative ALL

🔬 *Haematologica Spotlight* 🔬

A Chinese team published the largest-scale pediatric-style regimen treatment for adult Ph-negative ALL

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)

    is a hematological malignancy characterized by the proliferation of immature lymphoid cells in the bone marrow, peripheral blood, and extramedullary sites. While the prognosis for childhood ALL is relatively favorable, with a 5-year overall survival rate of 80-90%, adult ALL poses greater challenges. Approximately 20-30% of adult acute leukemias are ALL, with about two-thirds being Philadelphia chromosome-negative (Ph-negative) ALL. Conventional adult ALL treatments have shown high remission rates but also high relapse rates and poor long-term survival.
Haematologica

Haematologica

Inspired by the success of pediatric ALL treatments, especially in adolescent and young adult patients, the Hematology Center at the

Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College Hospital

    embarked on a groundbreaking journey. Their pioneering research, recently published in *Haematologica*, presents the results of the largest prospective cohort study in China investigating the efficacy of a pediatric-inspired regimen in adult Ph-negative ALL patients.
 

The study, led by Dr. Wang Jianxiang and his team,

    evaluated the IH-2014 regimen’s effectiveness in 415 newly diagnosed adult Ph-negative ALL patients treated between April 2014 and December 2021, with a median age of 27 years (range 14-65 years) and a median follow-up of 40.8 months. The overall 5-year overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) rates were 53.8% and 51.1%, respectively, with a chemotherapy-related mortality rate of 3.6%.
 

Patients achieving complete remission (CR)

    after induction therapy with available bone marrow minimal residual disease (MRD) data were categorized based on diagnostic risk: standard-risk (SR) MRD-negative (<0.01%) in 73 patients (18.8%), SR MRD-positive (≥0.01%) in 69 patients (17.7%), high-risk (HR) MRD-negative in 120 patients (30.8%), and HR MRD-positive in 127 patients (32.6%). The 5-year OS rates for these groups were 82.6%, 58.7%, 58.3%, and 36.1%, respectively (P<0.001), with corresponding cumulative relapse rates of 24.2%, 41.1%, 36.3%, and 50.1% (P<0.001). Multivariate analysis identified age ≥40 years and MRD positivity after induction as independent adverse prognostic factors for OS and DFS.
 
In conclusion, the IH-2014 regimen demonstrates significant efficacy and good tolerability in adult Ph-negative ALL patients, with younger patients (<40 years) benefiting more prominently. Induction treatment response combined with MRD levels serves as a valuable prognostic indicator for long-term survival and relapse, guiding allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation decisions in patients achieving first complete remission (CR1).
 
This study marks a pivotal milestone in advancing adult ALL treatment strategies, showcasing China’s remarkable progress in the field of hematology. Stay tuned for more groundbreaking research from our team!

Breakthrough Ultra CAR-T Therapy Shows High Disease Control Rate of 85.7% in Advanced Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer

Breakthrough Ultra CAR-T Therapy Shows High Disease Control Rate of 85.7% in Advanced Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer
As a skilled overseas social media writer, here’s a revamped article for international media promotion:
 
In a groundbreaking development, PRGN-3005, an Ultra CAR-T cell therapy, is making waves with an impressive disease control rate (DCR) of 85.7% in the treatment of advanced platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. Utilizing non-viral gene delivery technology, this therapy eliminates the need for ex vivo expansion, significantly reducing production time and costs. The ability to administer the treatment rapidly, as soon as the second day after non-viral gene transfer, not only lowers production time and costs but also enhances tumor targeting precision. This holds the potential to disrupt the current landscape of CAR-T cell therapy.
 
Published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the “Phase 1/1b Clinical Trial of PRGN-3005 in Recurrent or Refractory (r/r) Ovarian Cancer” reported promising outcomes. The study included 25 assessable patients with a median age of 64 (range: 38-76) who had undergone extensive pretreatment with a median of 8 prior therapeutic regimens. The patients were divided into three groups: intraperitoneal (IP) infusion (C1, n = 12), intravenous (IV) infusion (C2, n = 6), and intravenous cyclophosphamide low dose (IV LD, n = 7).
 
Post-treatment, 20% of all participants exhibited regression in at least one target lesion (evaluated by RECIST 1.1 criteria). Notably, the DCR for the IV LD group was an impressive 85.7%, with a 57% reduction in target tumor burden and an average 27.4% decrease in CA125. A patient in the IV LD group experienced a 28% reduction in target tumor burden after a second PRGN-3005 infusion at the 12-month mark. Importantly, no PRGN-3005-related dose-limiting toxicities, neurotoxicities, or ≥3-grade cytokine release syndrome (CRS) adverse reactions were observed.
 
These results underscore the favorable tolerability of PRGN-3005 Ultra CAR-T therapy in treating ovarian cancer, demonstrating an encouraging disease control rate (DCR) and an overall reduction in tumor burden.
 
While CAR-T therapy has shown great promise in treating hematologic malignancies and several products have been approved, its application in solid tumor treatment is still in the clinical experimental stage. Nevertheless, with the continuous evolution of CAR-T generations, the emergence of more prominent targets, and improvements in proliferation and cytokine release aspects, the conquest of advanced solid tumors by CAR-T therapy seems imminent. Numerous clinical trials are already underway, offering hope for complete remission in fortunate patients.

The introduction of CAR-T cell therapy has been a paradigm shift, altering the long-term outcomes for R/R B-ALL patients.
Inaticabtagene Autoleucel demonstrates superior efficacy:
Higher overall response rates (ORR) at 3 months and beyond, with median duration of response (DOR) and overall survival (OS) surpassing other products.
Patients treated with Inaticabtagene Autoleucel exhibit similar long-term benefits in OS, whether or not they undergo subsequent transplantation.
 
Inaticabtagene Autoleucel boasts enhanced safety:
Lower incidence rates of grade 3 cytokine release syndrome (CRS), grade 3 immune effector cell-associated neurotoxicity syndrome (ICANS), and infusion-related mortality compared to other CAR-T products.
 
Moreover, in minimal residual disease-positive (MRD+) B-ALL patients, CAR-T cell therapy has shown significant progress. It eradicates MRD, improves survival rates, and may serve as a first-line consolidation therapy for CR patients, aiding in:
 
Higher remission rates
Reduced transplant requirements, mitigating transplant-related complications
Maintenance of long-term remission for those unsuitable for allo-HSCT or unwilling to undergo it
 
Improved overall survival
Lower intensity and duration of intensive chemotherapy, leading to shorter treatment times and enhanced compliance.
 
The Future Outlook: Believing in the potential of CAR-T cell therapy, it is anticipated that this innovative treatment will extend hope to currently incurable diseases such as solid tumors and brain tumors. The strides made in Chinese medical innovation, exemplified by Inaticabtagene Autoleucel, signal a promising future for the global landscape of CAR-T cell therapy.

A recent clinical trial has unveiled a new prospect for treating relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The study delved into the safety and efficacy of a natural selection CD7 CAR-T cell (NS7 CAR-T cell) in treating CD7+ relapsed/refractory AML patients.
 
The research involved 10 cases of CD7+ relapsed/refractory AML, where 30% of AML patients expressed CD7. Following treatment with NS7 CAR-T cell infusion, the results showed that within 4 weeks post-infusion, 70% of patients achieved complete bone marrow remission (CR), with 6 patients achieving a deep remission at the level of minimal residual disease (MRD). Notably, the loss of CD7 was identified as a primary reason for non-response in some patients.
 
The study also indicated that the majority of patients (80%) experienced mild cytokine release syndrome (CRS) post-infusion, with no observed neurotoxicity.
Furthermore, for select patients, continuing with a second allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation post NS7 CAR-T cell treatment resulted in promising long-term outcomes. However, further exploration is required for patients who did not undergo consolidative transplants to enhance treatment efficacy.
 
Professor Lu Peihua(Lu Daopei Hospital) remarked that this study highlights the potential of CD7 CAR-T cells as a bridging therapy before transplantation, demonstrating preliminary therapeutic efficacy for relapsed/refractory AML patients. Nevertheless, a comprehensive evaluation of its efficacy requires a larger sample size and longer-term follow-up.
 
This preliminary study represents a significant advancement in the field of AML treatment, but collaborative efforts and more research are still necessary. Looking ahead, we anticipate further studies and treatment outcomes to bring more beneficial therapeutic options for the long-term survival of patients, supported by a broader patient cohort and collaborative efforts from the medical community.
 
The outlook for this CD7 CAR-T cell therapy is promising, especially for AML patients who have undergone various treatments and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplants. We look forward to more in-depth research and treatment outcomes in the future, offering more beneficial treatment choices for long-term survival among patients.
