Study Design

Allocation randomized
Endpoint classification safety study
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
cyt107+genhevac+entecavir or tenofovir
4 patients per arm for each dose level. 3 patients receiving experimental treatment (CYT107 and vaccine) in addition to current antiviral treatment and 1 control patient only the current antiviral treatment
(Experimental)
cyt107+ entecavir or tenofovir
4 patients per arm for each dose level. 3 patients receiving experimental treatment (CYT107) in addition to current antiviral treatment and 1 control patient only the current antiviral treatment

Primary Outcomes

Measure
To determine the short and long-term safety and biological activity of CYT107 in patients with a HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B who have, at screening a HBV DNA undetectable stable for at least 3 months with antiviral treatment.
time frame: Week 12

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
To characterize the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CYT107 in humans chronically infected with HBV.
time frame: Week 12
To assess the effects of the tri-therapy (CYT107 + HBV vaccine + antiviral treatment) versus bi-therapy (CYT107 + antiviral treatment) versus control (antiviral treatment) on the markers of the HBV infection (antiviral activity)at W16 weeks and W52
time frame: Week 12 and Week 52
To quantify the effects of the tri-therapy (CYT107 + HBV vaccine + antiviral treatment) versus bi-therapy (CYT107 + antiviral treatment) versus control (antiviral treatment) on the immune system at W16 weeks
time frame: Week 16

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Chronic HBV-infected patients - HBeAg-negative patients - Age > 18 years - Patients with active chronic hepatitis at the start of the antiviral treatment - Patient with a HBV DNA undetectable (<70 copies/ml) stable for at least 3 months under entecavir or tenofovir treatment. - Ongoing treatment by entecavir or tenofovir at screening Note: previous treatment with pegylated IFN monotherapy, before the start of entecavir or tenofovir, is acceptable Exclusion Criteria: - Infection by HCV - Infection by HIV-1 and /or HIV-2 - Apart from HBV infection, presence of active infection requiring a specific treatment or a hospitalization - Previous treatment by lamivudine and/or nucleosides analogues - Inactive carrier - Cirrhosis - Other liver disease (notably from alcoholic, metabolic or immunological origin) - History of clinical autoimmune disease or active auto-immune disease - Type I diabetes mellitus - Severe asthma, presently on chronic medications

Additional Information

Official title A Phase Randomized Open Labelled Controlled Dose Escalation Study of Repeated Administration of "CYT107" (Glyco-r-hIL-7) Added on Antiviral Treatment and Vaccination in HBeAg-negative Chronic Hepatitis B-infected Patients
Principal investigator Pietro Andreone
Description This is a Phase I/IIa inter-patient dose-escalation study assessing weekly doses of Interleukin-7 (CYT107) in HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B infected adult patients. The dose escalation is aimed at establishing the safety of a biologically active doses of CYT107 added to the current antiviral therapy with entecavir or tenofovir and vaccination or not. At each dose level, study patients will receive one subcutaneous administration of CYT107 per week for a total of 4. Groups of 8 patients will be entered at each dose level of CYT107. Three dose levels are planned. At each dose level, patients are randomized between 2 arms of treatment: tritherapy (CYT107, vaccine and antiviral treatment) or bitherapy (CYT107 and vaccine). Each treatment group is composed of 4 patients, 3 receiving experimental treatments, 1 just the current antiviral treatment (control patient). According to the treatment arm, eligible patients initially receive a vaccine if in treatment group of tritherapy, thereafter, CYT107 is added for a cycle of four weekly injections (if not a control patient) at a defined dose level. If in treatment group of tritherapy, patients will receive 2 additional doses of vaccine. The treatment phase for the tritherapy group is from first vaccine D0 to last vaccine W12 and includes CYT107 administration from W4 to W7. The treatment phase for the bitehrapy group is from W4 to W7 corresponding to CYT104 injections. The patients are then followed on a regular basis until reaching 52 weeks after the D0. Participants will have 1 overnight hospitalization and 12 clinic visit on a period of 55 weeks. During the visits the following may be done: - medical history, physical examination, blood tests - electrocardiograms (ECG) - chest X-Ray - liver/spleen imaging - urine tests
