Oncolytics Biotech Inc. reports positive interim results of UK phase Ia/Ib trials
Date:9/28/2007

disease in two, non-treated tumours at one, two and three months post treatment.

The squamous cell scalp patient experienced stable disease in the target tumour for two months which then became a partial response at three months. This patient also experienced stable disease in one non-treated tumour measured at three months post-treatment. Patients in the Ib portion received either two, four or six intratumoural doses of REOLYSIN at 1x1010 TCID50 with a constant localized radiation dose of 36 Gy given in 12 fractions. Of the six patients who have completed the study to date, three patients (colorectal, melanoma and lung cancer) experienced tumour regression in the target tumour, as well as stable disease in non-treated tumours.

The colorectal patient experienced a partial response with a more than 50% regression in the target tumour as well as stable disease in four, non-treated tumours measured at one month following treatment. A melanoma patient experienced minor regression in the target tumour as well as stable disease in two, non-treated tumours at one and two months following treatment. A lung cancer patient experienced minor regression in the target tumour, as well as stable disease in three, non-treated tumours at two months following treatment.

The treatment has been well tolerated, with mostly Grade 1 or 2 toxicities noted including fatigue, lymphopenia, fever, and neutropenia. Grade 3 toxicities including cellulitis, dysphasia and diarrhoea were related to disease progression and not to the combination treatment. Viral replication was unaffected by cellular irradiation.

The primary objective of the Phase Ia/Ib trial is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), dose limiting toxicity (DLT), and safety profile of REOLYSIN when administered intratumourally to patients receiving radiation treatment. A secondary objective is to examine any evidence of anti-tumour activity. Eligible patients include those who have been diagnosed
