Personalized Cellular Vaccine for Glioblastoma (PERCELLVAC)

2016-03-18 04:48:39 | BioPortfolio


Dendritic cell-based cellular vaccine for tumor therapy has shown efficacy. This study is designed to perform a personalized clinical trial by first analyzing the expression of tumor associated antigens in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma and then immunizing the patients with personalized DC-based cellular vaccine. In addition, allogeneic peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) will be used as cellular vehicle for immunization. Safety and efficacy will be observed in the study.


This is a single-institution, open label, single-arm, Phase I/II study designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of personalized cellular tumor vaccine for patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM). Newly diagnosed GBM patients will undergo tumor resection. The tumors will be analyzed for the expression of a panel of glioma-associated antigens and immune-related genes. Post surgical treatment will be 6 weeks standard chemotherapy with temozolomide and concurrent radiotherapy and continue cycles of temozolomide within a 28-day window. Patients will undergo leukapheresis either after surgery or after concurrent radio/chemotherapy. Based on individual tumor antigen expression, in vitro transcribed mRNA will be generated and used to pulse in vitro generated DCs. The patients will be pre-conditioned for DC vaccination with either tetanus toxoid vaccine or imiquimod cream. Allogeneic PBMCs will be pulsed with tumor antigen mRNA. The patients will be immunized intradermally for a total of twelve times with DC or PMBC cellular vaccines. Safety and efficacy will be monitored. The primary objective is to assess the safety of the personalized cellular vaccines. The secondary objective is to assess the specific T cell response to immunized vaccines. In addition, the antitumor efficacy of the vaccines will be measured by radiological response (MRI), iRANO, progression-free survival and overall survival.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

A bacterial vaccine for the prevention of brucellosis in man and animal. Brucella abortus vaccine is used for the immunization of cattle, sheep, and goats.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
