RATIONALE: Vaccines may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells.
- Determine the toxicity of vaccination comprising recombinant vaccinia-MUC-1 and recombinant vaccinia-TRICOM vaccine in patients with metastatic breast cancer.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen when administered with sargramostim (GM-CSF) in these patients.
- Determine the host immune reactivity in patients treated with this regimen with or without GM-CSF.
- Determine the antitumor activity in patients treated with this regimen with or without GM-CSF.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation study.
Patients receive vaccination comprising recombinant vaccinia-MUC-1 and recombinant vaccinia-TRICOM vaccine intradermally on days 1 and 29 (for a total of 2 doses) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of recombinant vaccinia-MUC-1 and recombinant vaccinia-TRICOM vaccine until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, an additional 10 patients (including 5 HLA-A2-positive patients) receive vaccination as above at the MTD and sargramostim (GM-CSF) subcutaneously on days 1-4 and 29-32.
Patients are followed at 4 weeks, monthly until disease progression, and then annually for up to 15 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 11-22 patients will be accrued for this study within 18-24 months.

The purpose of this study is to follow responses to treatment with vaccinia immune globulin (VIG) for safety and clinical benefit [during HIV vaccine research]. VIG is purified from human...
In 2002, the United States implemented a new program for smallpox vaccinations among military personnel using a live vaccinia virus product. Approximately 2.4 million US military service members and h...
Smallpox, or vaccinia, has been eradicated worldwide as a disease; however, it may be weaponized and is thus a required immunization when military members deploy to certain parts of the world.
Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA) is a live, viral vaccine under advanced development as a non-replicating smallpox vaccine. A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase III clinical trial was co...
Vaccinia virus (VACV) A14 is a major envelope protein and a dominant antibody target in the smallpox vaccine. However, the role of anti-A14 antibodies in immunity against orthopoxviruses is unclear. H...
We diagnosed vaccinia virus infection in five male workers directly exposed to rabbit-skin powder contaminated by vaccinia virus via skin contact and inhalation. Four of the workers had been vaccinate...
A live VACCINIA VIRUS vaccine of calf lymph or chick embryo origin, used for immunization against smallpox. It is now recommended only for laboratory workers exposed to smallpox virus. Certain countries continue to vaccinate those in the military service. Complications that result from smallpox vaccination include vaccinia, secondary bacterial infections, and encephalomyelitis. (Dorland, 28th ed)
The type species of ORTHOPOXVIRUS, related to COWPOX VIRUS, but whose true origin is unknown. It has been used as a live vaccine against SMALLPOX. It is also used as a vector for inserting foreign DNA into animals. Rabbitpox virus is a subspecies of VACCINIA VIRUS.
The cutaneous and occasional systemic reactions associated with vaccination using smallpox (variola) vaccine.
A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
