An unmet clinical need exists for patients with cancers associated with human papillomavirus. A new phase I study at Providence Cancer Institute will evaluate a novel biologic therapy in patients with recurrent, locally advanced or metastatic human papillomavirus strain 16 positive (HPV16+) solid tumors:

SQZ-PBMC-HPV as Monotherapy and in Combination with Atezolizumab in HPV16+ Solid Tumors

In this open-label, multicenter study, investigators will evaluate the safety, dose escalation and dose expansion of SQZ-PBMC-HPV, an investigational antigen-presenting cell therapy directed against the E6 and E7 proteins of HPV16.

The investigational agent will be tested as monotherapy and in combination with atezolizumab (Tecentriq), an approved checkpoint inhibitor. Immunogenic effects and antitumor activity will also be studied.
