The purpose of this trial is to determine the safety and efficacy of CVac compared with Standard of Care in ovarian cancer patients who are in remission after first or second-line therapy.
- To confirm the safety of administering CVac in this population.
- To determine the effects of CVac on progression-free survival (PFS).
- To determine overall survival (OS) for recurrent ovarian cancer patients who receive CVac after achieving remission in the first or second-line setting.
- Evaluation of host immunologic response to CVac administration.

The purpose of this study is to determine if an investigational cell therapy called Cvac can help EOC from returning when administered to patients who are in complete remission after surgi...
This research study is evaluating the effect (good and bad) of a dendritic cell/tumor fusion vaccine in combination with the laboratory made agents GM-CSF and imiquimod on the participants...
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's cancer cells may make the body build an immune response to and kill their tumor cells. Combining vaccine therapy with interferon gamma may be a mor...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and activity of DC/PC3, a dendritic cell vaccine used as immunotherapy for prostate cancer. The vaccine is made with each participants' o...
This is a phase I clinical trial of cytotoxic T cell injection induced by dendritic cells loaded with 6B11 anti-idiotype minibody (6b11 - OCIK injection) for recurrent platinum-resistant e...
Soluble PD-1 (sPD1) can bind with ligands PD-L1/PD-L2 on the surface of dendritic cells (DCs). Therefore, a sPD1 vaccine fused with an immunogen can increase T cell activation against cancer. Here, we...
Epithelial ovarian cancer is a common malignancy, with no clinically approved diagnostic biomarker. Engrailed-2 (EN2) is a homeodomain-containing transcription factor, essential during embryological n...
Human ovarian surface epithelial (HOSE) cells are a critical cell source for ovarian cancer research; however, they are difficult to obtain and maintain under standard laboratory conditions in large q...
DNA damage repair alterations play a critical role in ovarian cancer tumorigenesis. Mechanistic drivers of the DNA damage response consequently present opportunities for therapeutic targeting. The chr...
MicroRNA-542-3p (miR-542-3p) has been implicated in several cancers; however, its precise role in ovarian cancer is unclear. In this study, we found that miR-542-3p was significantly downregulated in ...
Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.
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 suspension of killed Bordetella pertussis organisms, used for immunization against pertussis (WHOOPING COUGH). It is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (DTP). There is an acellular pertussis vaccine prepared from the purified antigenic components of Bordetella pertussis, which causes fewer adverse reactions than whole-cell vaccine and, like the whole-cell vaccine, is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A superficial, epithelial Herpesvirus hominis infection of the cornea, characterized by the presence of small vesicles which may break down and coalesce to form dendritic ulcers (KERATITIS, DENDRITIC). (Dictionary of Visual Science, 3d ed)
Recirculating, dendritic, antigen-presenting cells containing characteristic racket-shaped granules (Birbeck granules). They are found principally in the stratum spinosum of the EPIDERMIS and are rich in Class II MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX molecules. Langerhans cells were the first dendritic cell to be described and have been a model of study for other dendritic cells (DCs), especially other migrating DCs such as dermal DCs and INTERSTITIAL DENDRITIC CELLS.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
