Vaccine Therapy Plus QS21 in Treating Women With Breast Cancer Who Have No Evidence of Disease

2014-08-27 03:58:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Vaccines made from GM2-KLH and given with QS21 may make the body build an immune response to and kill tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of GM2-KLH vaccine plus QS21 in treating patients with breast cancer who have no evidence of disease.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether immunization with GM2-KLH vaccine plus the immunological adjuvant QS21 induces an antibody response against GM2 and cells expressing GM2 in disease free patients at high risk for recurrence of breast cancer.

OUTLINE: GM2-KLH vaccine plus QS21 is administered subcutaneously to sites on the upper arm and upper leg at weekly intervals for 4 weeks. Two additional vaccines are administered at weeks 12 and 24. Patients are followed every 3 months after the sixth vaccination.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 9 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
