Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo-controlled Topical Resiquimod Adjuvant for NY-ESO-1 Protein Vaccination
The study is designed to see if a course of injections containing the NY-ESO-1 protein (a tumor antigen, marker expressed by tumors); in combination with an immune stimulant (adjuvant) Montanide, with or without resiquimod (another adjuvant) is well tolerated and safe in patients with surgically resected Stage IIB, IIC, Stage III or Stage IV (AJCC criteria) melanoma, a tumor that expresses NY-ESO-1. In addition, this study is designed to see if the patient's body's defense (immune) system can be boosted (strengthened) by this vaccine and if the addition of resiquimod to the vaccine makes this more likely.
There is no published data on the application of topical resiquimod in combination with an antigen in Montanide, therefore, this study includes a 2-part design where Part I represents a dose-escalation part with topical resiquimod in an open-label fashion. Part II represents the randomized part.
In Part I, 2 cohorts are planned: If no dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) occurs by day 8 of the last vaccination cycle in the last patient enrolled the first cohort, 3 additional patients (cohort 2) will be enrolled. If no DLT occurs by day 8 of the last vaccination cycle in the last patient enrolled the second cohort in Part I, the trial will proceed to Part II where patients will be randomized.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Transforming protein encoded by ras oncogenes. Point mutations in the cellular ras gene (c-ras) can also result in a mutant p21 protein that can transform mammalian cells. Oncogene protein p21(ras) has been directly implicated in human neoplasms, perhaps accounting for as much as 15-20% of all human tumors. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 126.96.36.199.
A pro-apoptotic protein and member of the Bcl-2 protein family that is regulated by PHOSPHORYLATION. Unphosphorylated Bad protein inhibits the activity of BCL-XL PROTEIN.
A multi-domain mitochondrial membrane protein and member of the bcl-2 Protein family. Bak protein interacts with TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN P53 and promotes APOPTOSIS.
A member of the Bcl-2 protein family and homologous partner of C-BCL-2 PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN. It regulates the release of CYTOCHROME C and APOPTOSIS INDUCING FACTOR from the MITOCHONDRIA. Several isoforms of BCL2-associated X protein occur due to ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of the mRNA for this protein.
The vitamin K-dependent cofactor of activated PROTEIN C. Together with protein C, it inhibits the action of factors VIIIa and Va. A deficiency in protein S; (PROTEIN S DEFICIENCY); can lead to recurrent venous and arterial thrombosis.

A vaccine formulated with a combination of TLR-2 and TLR-9 adjuvants and the recombinant major outer membrane protein elicits a robust immune response and significant protection against a C. muridarum challenge.
Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial pathogen in the World and there is a need for a vaccine. To enhance the immunogenicity of a vaccine formulated with the Chlamydi...
The caroteno-chlorophyll-protein, LHC IIc, is a relatively minor component of the PS II antenna. Isolated LHC IIc contains a major protein of 28 kDa along with a 26 kDa subunit in lower abundance. Pre...
Ninety local cultivars and 124 induced grain shape mutants were screened for their protein content and the distribution of protein in their endosperm. The protein content varied widely from 4.2 to 12....
We use a dissipative particle dynamic simulation to investigate the effects of shape complementarity on the protein-protein interactions. By monitoring different kinds of protein shape-complementarity...
Protein-protein interactions play critical roles in a wide variety of biological processes, and their dysregulations contribute to the pathogenesis of several diseases, including cancer. Chemical enti...
