GMO characterization

GMO is a:
DNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
JNJ-64041757 is a genetically modified version of Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) which is
intended for use as a human cancer immunotherapeutic in the treatment of advanced
adenocarcinoma of the lung. The genetic modifications result in the following changes:
1. Attenuation of virulence by the deletion of the coding sequences of two wild-type
virulence determinants (ActA and Internalin B)
2. Heterologous gene expression by stable integration of epidermal growth factor
variant III (EGFRvIII) human mesothelin (hMeso) expression cassette into the
tRNAArg locus of the Lm ΔactA/ΔinlB chromosome.
JNJ-64041757 is derived from the Live Attenuated Double-Deleted (LADD) Lm platform
strain ANZ-100. In the absence of comprehensive data for JNJ-64041757, data derived from
the platform strain (ANZ-100) and derived strains (CRS-207 and JNJ-64041809) are
referenced in support of this notification.
