UCPVax Plus Nivolumab Versus Docetaxel as Second Line Therapy in Advanced Non Small Cell Lung Cancer

2020-02-16 17:41:18 | BioPortfolio


Lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy and the leading cause of cancer-related mortality both in men and women worldwide. NSCLC accounts for about 85% of lung cancers. Median survival for patients with advanced NSCLC ranges between 8 and 10 months for those with squamous tumors to 10 to 14 months for molecularly unselected patients with adenocarcinoma enrolled in the most recent phase III clinical trials of modern chemotherapy regimens. Thus, there is a clear need to improve the therapeutic options for the treatment of patients with NSCLC disease.

Immunotherapy is proven to be an effective therapeutic approach in a variety of cancers and is likely to become a key part of the clinical management of NSCLC. The basic concept of these anticancer ICB therapies is to restore antitumor immunity, especially T cell functions.

Nivolumab (NIVO), which is an anti-PD-1 antibody, has shown promising results in 2nd line treatment for advanced NSCLC.

UCPVAx is a therapeutic vaccine based on the telomerase-derived UCP designed to induce strong TH1 CD4 T cell responses in cancer patients.

So investigators propose to evaluate the efficacy of UCPVax plus Nivolumab in patients with advanced non small cell lung cancer as second line systemic therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.

Laboratory processes prior to specimen analysis. These processes include study design, compliance of the subjects investigated, compliance in adherence to protocols, choice of specimens utilized and sample collection.

The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.

A type of scanning probe microscopy in which a very sharp conducting needle is swept just a few angstroms above the surface of a sample. The tiny tunneling current that flows between the sample and the needle tip is measured, and from this are produced three-dimensional topographs. Due to the poor electron conductivity of most biological samples, thin metal coatings are deposited on the sample.
