The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of priming vaccinations, and subsequent boosting vaccinations with GVAX® Vaccine for Prostate Cancer. Clinical observations and laboratory measurements will be monitored to evaluate safety and toxicity. Additionally, the antitumor effects of GVAX® Vaccine for Prostate Cancer on serum PSA levels, will be evaluated and antitumor responses will be quantitated.
