Safety Study of a Recombinant Protein Vaccine to Treat Esophageal Cancer

2014-08-27 03:18:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the biological recommended dose of IMF-001.

Description

The prognosis of esophageal cancer is improved with the improvement of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. However, there are no standard therapies established for recurrent esophageal cancer. NY-ESO-1 antigen is expressed in 33% of patients. NY-ESO-1 protein is applicable without limitation by HLA types, and injected as a complex with cholesteryl pullulan (CHP), forming nano-particles (IMF-001), it can activate both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. In this phase 1 study, the safety and the biological recommended dose will be determined.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.

Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.

Disorders affecting the motor function of the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; the ESOPHAGUS body, or a combination of these parts. The failure of the sphincters to maintain a tonic pressure may result in gastric reflux of food and acid into the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX). Other disorders include hypermotility (spastic disorders) and markedly increased amplitude in contraction (nutcracker esophagus).

A mild form of LIMITED SCLERODERMA, a multi-system disorder. Its features include symptoms of CALCINOSIS; RAYNAUD DISEASE; ESOPHAGEAL MOTILITY DISORDERS; sclerodactyly, and TELANGIECTASIS. When the defect in esophageal function is not prominent, it is known as CRST syndrome.
