Brain Cancer Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm

Brain Cancer Overview

A brain tumor, known as an intracranial tumor, central nervous system (CNS) tumors represent a group of diseases that have in common the abnormal development of mass lesions in the brain, spinal cord or its coverings. A brain tumor can be classified into two main groups, i.e. primary and metastatic. A primary brain tumor is often described as “low grade” or “high grade.” A low-grade tumor generally grows slowly, but it can turn into a high-grade tumor, whereas a high-grade tumor is more likely to grow faster. Secondary brain tumors, also called brain metastases, are much more common than primary tumors in adults. The most common types of primary tumors in adults are meningiomas and astrocytomas, such as glioblastomas. In children, the most common types of brain tumors include medulloblastomas, low-grade astrocytomas (pilocytic), ependymomas, craniopharyngiomas, and brainstem gliomas. All types of brain tumors produce symptoms that vary depending on the part of the brain involved. These symptoms may include headaches, seizures, problems with vision, vomiting and mental changes. Even though the exact cause of most brain tumors is unknown, some uncommon risk factors include exposure to chemicals, radiation, and family history of brain tumors. 

 

Brain Cancer Diagnosis

Most brain tumors are not diagnosed until after symptoms appear. In general, diagnosing a brain tumor usually begins with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Once MRI shows a tumor in the brain, the most common way to determine the type of brain tumor is to look at the results from a tissue sample after a biopsy or surgery. Blood tests are also done to help diagnose certain brain tumors such as pituitary gland, pineal region and germ cell tumors.

 

Sophisticated imaging techniques are used to pinpoint brain tumors. Diagnostic tools used for this purpose include computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) and MRI. Other MRI sequences can help the surgeon plan the resection of the tumor based on the location of the normal nerve pathways of the brain. Intraoperative MRI is also used during surgery to guide tissue biopsies and tumor removal. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is used to examine the tumor’s chemical profile and determine the nature of the lesions seen on the MRI. Positron emission tomography (PET scan) can help detect recurring brain tumors.

 

Brain Cancer Treatment

Treatment options for brain cancers include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy. The treatment options and recommendations depend on several factors like the size, type, and grade of the tumor, whether the tumor is putting pressure on vital parts of the brain, if the tumor has spread to other parts of the CNS or the body, the possible side effects and finally, the treatment preferences and overall health of the patient.

 

For a low-grade brain tumor, surgery may be the only treatment needed, especially if all of the tumor can be removed. If there is visible tumor remaining after surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy may be used. For higher-grade tumors, treatment usually begins with surgery, followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Brain Cancer Marketed Drugs

 

Avastin: Genentech

Avastin (Bevacizumab) is a recombinant humanized monoclonal IgG1 antibody, which acts as angiogenesis inhibitor by blocking its target, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Bevacizumab binds to the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) with its receptor VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2, which are present on the surface of endothelial cells. This helps in reducing the activity of VEGF and regressing the vascularization of tumors, which normalizes the tumor vasculature and inhibits the formation of new tumor vasculature, thereby preventing the tumor growth. VEGF is a chemical signal that stimulates angiogenesis in a variety of diseases, especially in cancer. Bevacizumab was the first clinically available angiogenesis inhibitor in the United States. Avastin is indicated for the treatment of glioblastoma with progressive disease in adult patients following prior therapy as a single agent.

Temodar/Temodal: Merck

The active pharmaceutical ingredient in Temodar/Temodal, is an imidazotetrazine derivative of the alkylating agent dacarbazine, used for the treatment of newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme and refractory anaplastic astrocytoma. The therapeutic benefit of temozolomide is due to its ability to alkylate/methylate DNA. This alkylation/methylation destroys the DNA and triggers the death of the tumor cells. Temozolomide targets selectively tumoral tissues; it has an anti-neoplastic effect; it has minimum influence on adjacent brain tissues; it has no severe systemic toxicity, and it is eliminated rapidly. Temodar/Temodal was initially commercialized by Merck in the different countries, whereas Baxter Oncology was responsible for the manufacture of Temodar injection. However, due to patent expiry, the market holds the generic version of the drug. Recently, the gel formulation of Temozolomide has also been approved by Double Bond Pharmaceuticals.

Ofranergene obadenovec (VB-111): VBL Therapeutics

Ofranergene obadenovec (VB-111) is a first-in-class, targeted anticancer gene-therapy agent that is being developed by VBL Therapeutics to treat a wide range of solid tumors such as GBM. It is a non-replicating adenovirus 5 (Ad-5, El-deleted) carrying a proapoptotic human Fas-chimera transgene that targets angiogenic blood vessels and leads to vascular disruption. In patients, improvement has been experienced in post treatment fever suggesting that VB-111’s mode of action involves induction of a tumor-directed immune response. This mechanism retains activity regardless of baseline tumor mutations or the identity of the proangiogenic factors secreted by the tumor. VB-111 is the first agent, based on transcriptional targeting of tumor endothelium, to be assessed in a clinical trial. The drug is being investigated using VBL’s proprietary Vascular Targeting System (VTS) platform Technology to target endothelial cells in the tumor vasculature for cancer therapy, which is conveniently administered as an intravenous infusion once every 2 months.

Durvalumab (MEDI4736): MedImmune

Durvalumab is an investigational human monoclonal antibody directed against the programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) protein in development by MedImmune. Signals from PD-L1 help tumors avoid detection by the immune system. Durvalumab blocks these signals, countering the tumor’s immune-evading strategies. The antibody belongs to an emerging class of immunotherapies commonly referred to as checkpoint inhibitors; because they remove checks, the body places on immune activation. The mechanism of action of Durvalumab includes PD-L1 expression on tumor cells and tumor-associated immune cells in the tumor microenvironment that can be induced by inflammatory signals and cytokines. PD-L1 blocks T-cell function and activation by interacting with PD-1 and CD80 (B7.1) and reduces cytotoxic T-cell activity, proliferation, and cytokine production.

Tasadenoturev (DNX-2401): DNAtrix

DNX-2401, explored by DNAtrix, is oncolytic immunotherapy designed to fulfill the dual requirements of high potency and safety. In order to achieve this, two stable genetic changes in the adenovirus genome were engineered that cause it to replicate selectively in retinoblastoma (Rb) pathway deficient cells and infect tumor cells efficiently. Results from preclinical and clinical studies indicate that DNX-2401 replicates in human tumors, elicits tumor necrosis, triggers intratumoral immune cell infiltration and can lead to long term tumor destruction.

 

DNAtrix is planning a Phase III study to investigate the drug as a monotherapy for glioblastoma patients. Additionally, the company is also evaluating DNX-2401 in a Phase I study for the treatment of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, where the company received FDA Fast Track and Rare Pediatric Disease designations.

Everolimus (RAD001): Novartis

Everolimus (RAD001) is an orally administered drug that works by interrupting the PI3K/Akt/mTOR cell-signaling pathway that is overactive in certain tumors. The drug inhibits explicitly mTOR, a protein that may help many tumors grow, thereby stopping the hyperactivation. It binds to an intracellular protein, FKBP-12, resulting in an inhibitory complex formation with mTOR complex 1 (mTORC1) and thus inhibition of mTOR kinase activity. The drug has already been approved as an anti-cancer agent for other tumor types and is currently being investigated to treat low-grade gliomas..

Brain Cancer Market Outlook

Brain tumors are solid tumors arising from transformed cells of the brain. These tumors can be of low grade (Grade I and II) or high grade (Grade III and IV). Of these, high grade tumours tend to grow rapidly and spread faster than tumours of a lower grade.

 

Though, there are several subtypes of these tumours but DelveInsight has only considered the most common ones for which certain pipeline therapies are being investigated.

 

Brain tumors, specifically HGGs are very difficult tumors to treat due to the problems in completely removing the tumor and their resistance to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. As there is no ideal treatment, therefore it is quite challenging as some cells may respond well to certain therapies, while others may not be affected at all. Because of this, the treatment plan for the indication may combine several approaches. The treatment often comprises a combination of several therapies, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or stereotactic radiosurgery followed by the additional/adjuvant treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, after surgery. Treatment is palliative and may include surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. The best treatment options for each person depends on many factors like the size and location of the tumor, the extent to which the tumor has grown into the surrounding normal brain tissues, and the affected person’s age and overall health.

 

Other than these current therapies, the brain tumor pipeline is robust and possesses multiple potential drugs in late and mid-stage developments, which is yet to be launched. The pipeline involves drugs with a varied mechanism of action along with different routes of administration, ranging from oral, intravenous, intratumoral, subcutaneous, etc. It is interesting to note that the emerging market of brain tumor includes budding gene therapies, i.e., Ofranergene obadenovec (VBL Therapeutics) and Ad-RTS-hIL-12 in combination with Veledimex (Ziopharm) along with four vaccine/immunotherapy candidates such as VBI-1901, AV-GBM-1 and ITI-1000 (pp65 DC Vaccine), Tasadenoturev (DNX-2401) by VBI Vaccines, Aivita Biomedical, Immunomic Therapeutics, and DNAtrix, respectively.

 

The potential candidates with promising results in late- or phase III stage of clinical development include Ofranergene obadenovec (VB-111; VBL Therapeutics), Trans Sodium Crocetinate (Diffusion Pharmaceuticals), Eflornithine (Orbus Therapeutics) and Regorafenib (Bayer). Out of these, Orbus therapeutics’ Eflornithine is the only therapy being investigated solely for recurrent anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) while a majority of therapies in the pipeline are being investigated for GBM.

 

Followed by the late-stage products, a wide array of mid-stage or phase II promising interventions are expected to be launched in the near future in the market which include Durvalumab (MEDI4736; MedImmune), Tasadenoturev (DNX-2401; DNAtrix), ONC201 (Oncoceutics), Selinexor (KPT-330; Karyopharm Therapeutics), VBI-1901 (VBI Vaccines), Paxalisib (GDC-0084; Kazia Therapeutics), AV-GBM-1 (Aivita Biomedical), MDNA55 (Medicenna Therapeutics), VAL-083 (Dianhydrogalactitol; DelMar Pharmaceuticals), ITI-1000 (pp65 DC Vaccine; Immunomic Therapeutics), Everolimus (Novartis), Ad-RTS-hIL-12 in combination with Veledimex (Ziopharm) and INO-5401 + INO-9012 + Cemiplimab (REGN2810; Inovio Pharmaceuticals).

Analyst Comments

  • The marketed drugs for HGG include Avastin (Genentech) and Temodar/Temodal (Merck). However, due to patent expiry, the market holds the generic version of both the drugs. This creates a huge competition among the generic version of these drugs and the emerging therapies due to the fact that generics are more cost-effective for the patients than a novel therapy. Additionally, due to limited knowledge about the overall survival benefit of bevacizumab, it is not indicated in unselected patients with newly diagnosed G
  • There have been substantial advances in understanding of the molecular aberrations found in malignant gliomas. These key discoveries include the isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) mutation, codeletion of the short arm of chromosome 1 and long arm of chromosome 19 (1p19q), O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) gene promoter methylation and histone H3-K27M mutation.
  • Currently, both Grade III and Grade IV HGGs follow similar treatment regimens due to lack of research and developmental activities about Grade III tumours. Therefore, moving further, there is a need for development of therapies specific for anaplastic form of tumors.
