Evaluation of a New Anti-cancer Immunotherapy in Adult Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients With a Suboptimal Clinical Response to Induction Chemotherapy

2014-08-27 03:16:34 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is being done to evaluate the clinical activity and safety of a WT1 Antigen-Specific Cancer Immunotherapeutic (WT1 ASCI) as post-induction therapy in adult patients with WT1-postivie Acute Myeloid Leukemia and with a suboptimal clinical response to induction chemotherapy. It will also be analyzed to what extent this treatment induces a specific immune response specific to the malignancy.

This protocol posting has been updated following Protocol amendment 1, Sep 2009.

Description

At least 40 patients will be enrolled in this study, divided in two cohorts of 20 patients each. One cohort will include patients in partial remission after induction therapy and one cohort will include patients in complete remission but with incomplete blood count recovery. Patients in both cohorts will receive the same study treatment according to the same administration schedule.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A trisaccharide antigen expressed on glycolipids and many cell-surface glycoproteins. In the blood the antigen is found on the surface of NEUTROPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES. In addition, CD15 antigen is a stage-specific embryonic antigen.

LYMPHOCYTE ACTIVATION by a specific ANTIGEN thus triggering clonal expansion of LYMPHOCYTES already capable of mounting an immune response to the antigen.

Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

A melanosome-specific protein that plays a role in the expression, stability, trafficking, and processing of GP100 MELANOMA ANTIGEN, which is critical to the formation of Stage II MELANOSOMES. The protein is used as an antigen marker for MELANOMA cells.
