The management of men with prostate cancer (PCa) with biochemical recurrence following local definitive therapy remains controversial. Early use of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) leads to significant side effects. Developing an alternative, clinically effective, and well-tolerated therapy remains an unmet clinical need. INO-5150 is a synthetic DNA therapy that includes plasmids encoding for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), and INO-9012 is a synthetic DNA plasmid encoding for interleukin-12 (IL-12). This phase 1/2, open-label, multi-center study enrolled men with PCa with rising PSA after surgery and/or radiation therapy. Patients were enrolled into one of four treatment arms: arm A, 2 mg of INO-5150; arm B, 8.5 mg of INO-5150; arm C, 2 mg of INO-5150 + 1 mg of INO-9012; and arm D, 8.5 mg of INO-5150 + 1 mg of INO-9012. Patients received study drug with electroporation on day 0 and on weeks 3, 12, and 24, and they were followed for up to 72 weeks. Sixty-two patients were enrolled. Treatment was well tolerated. 81% (50/62) of patients completed all visits. 85% (53/62) remained progression-free at 72 weeks. PSA doubling time (PSADT) was increased when assessed in patients with day 0 PSADT ≤12 months. Immunogenicity was observed in 76% (47/62) of patients by multiple assessments. Analysis indicated that CD38 and perforin co-positive CD8 T cell frequency correlated with attenuated PSA rise (p = 0.05, n = 50).

This phase II trial studies how well gallium-68 PSMA-11 PET/CT works for the diagnosis of prostate cancer with rising PSA following prostatectomy or radiation therapy (biochemically recurr...
This is a randomized, open-label, three-arm, phase 3 study in men with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer and PSA doubling time ≤ 9 months at the time of study entry.
Background: Some men who have been treated for localized prostate cancer with surgery or radiation still show signs of the disease in their blood. This is called biochemically recurrent p...

Cytolytic lymphocytes with the unique capacity of killing natural killer (NK)-resistant fresh tumor cells. They are INTERLEUKIN-2-activated NK cells that have no MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX restriction or need for antigen stimulation. LAK cells are used for ADOPTIVE IMMUNOTHERAPY in cancer patients.
The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm.

A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)
