  Purpose

Background:

  • Melanoma antigen recognized by T-cells (MART-1) and gp100 are two genes found in melanoma cells. An experimental procedure developed for treating patients with advanced melanoma uses these genes and a type of virus to make special cells called anti-MART-1 and anti-gp100 cells, which are designed to destroy the patient's tumor. The cells are created in the laboratory using the patient's own tumor cells or blood cells.
  • The procedure also uses one of two vaccines-the anti-MART-1 peptide or the anti-gp100 peptide-to stimulate cells in the immune system that may increase the effectiveness of the anti-MART-1 and anti-gp100 cells. Both vaccines are made from a virus that is modified to carry a copy of the MART-1 gene or gp100 gene. The virus cannot cause disease in humans.

Objectives:

- To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of anti-MART-1 and anti-gp100 cells and peptide vaccines for treating patients with advanced melanoma.

Eligibility:

- Patients 18 years of age with metastatic melanoma for whom standard treatments, including aldesleukin (IL-2) therapy to boost immune response, have not been effective.

Design:

  • Participants have an initial evaluation with complete medical history, as well as scans, x-rays, and other tests as directed by researchers. Most of the treatments for this study will be given on an inpatient basis.
  • Before the treatment begins, participants will undergo leukapheresis (removal of selected blood cells) to obtain cells for preparing the anti-MART-1 and anti-gp100 cells, and for later stem cell transplantation.
  • Preinfusion treatment: 5 days of chemotherapy and 2 days of total-body irradiation to prepare the immune system for receiving the anti-MART-1 and anti-gp100 cells.
  • Infusion of cells, followed by IL-2 treatment to improve immune response. IL-2 is given as a 15-minute infusion through a vein every 8 hours for a maximum of 15 doses (over 5 days).
  • After the cell infusion, participants will be divided into two groups and will receive either the gp100 peptide or MART-1 vaccine, given once a week for 3 weeks. Participants will also have stem cell transplantation (from previously collected stem cells) to promote cell survival.
  • Periodic follow-up clinic visits after hospital discharge for physical examination, review of treatment side effects, laboratory tests and scans every 1 to 6 months.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complete Response Rates for Patients With Metastatic Melanoma [ Time Frame: Every 4-6 weeks after initial treatment regimen. If the patient has stable disease or tumor shrinkage, complete evaluations will be repeated every 1-3 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete response was assessed by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria. Complete response is a disappearance of all target lesions. Partial response is at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter (LD) of target lesions taking as reference the baseline sum LD. Progression is at least a 20% increase in the sum of the LD of target lesions taking as reference the smallest sum LD recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions. Stable disease is neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD taking as reference the smallest sum LD.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Toxicity Profile [ Time Frame: 32 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Here is the number of participants with adverse events. For a detailed list of adverse events, see the adverse event module.

    3. Positive for gp100 and melanoma antigen recognized by T-cells (MART-1) (at least 1 plus and greater than 5 percent) as assessed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) approved test in the Laboratory of Pathology, Center for cancer Research (CCR), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
    4. Greater than or equal to 18 years of age.
    5. Willing to sign a durable power of attorney.
    6. Able to understand and sign the Informed Consent Document.
    7. Clinical performance status of Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) 0 or 1.

    1. Seronegative for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody. (The experimental treatment being evaluated in this protocol depends on an intact immune system. Patients who are HIV seropositive can have decreased immune-competence and thus be less responsive to the experimental treatment and more susceptible to its toxicities.)

    l. Hematology:

    1. Absolute neutrophil count greater than 1000/m^3

    1. Serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT)/aspartate aminotransferase (AST) less than or equal to 2.5 times the upper limit of normal.
    2. Serum creatinine less than or equal to 1.6 mg/dl.
    3. Total bilirubin less than or equal to 1.5 mg/dl, except in patients with Gilbert's Syndrome who must have a total bilirubin less than 3.0 mg/dl.

    n. Women of child-bearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test because of the potentially dangerous effects of the preparative chemotherapy on the fetus.

    o. More than four weeks must have elapsed since any prior systemic therapy at the time the patient receives the preparative regimen, and patients' toxicities must have recovered to a grade 1 or less (except for toxicities such as alopecia or vitiligo).

    p. Six weeks must have elapsed since prior anti-CTLA4 (cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4) antibody therapy to allow antibody levels to decline, and patients who have previously received anti-CTLA4 antibody must have a normal colonoscopy with normal colonic biopsies.

EXCLUSION CRITERIA:

  1. Women of child-bearing potential who are pregnant or breastfeeding because of the potentially dangerous effects of the preparative chemotherapy on the fetus or infant.
  2. Active systemic infections; coagulation disorders or other major medical illnesses of the cardiovascular, respiratory or immune system; myocardial infarction; cardiac arrhythmias; obstructive or restrictive pulmonary disease.
  3. Any form of primary immunodeficiency (such as Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Disease).
  4. Systemic steroid therapy.
  5. History of severe immediate hypersensitivity reaction to any of the agents used in this study.
  6. History of coronary revascularization
  7. Documented left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of less than 45 percent in patients with:

a) Clinically significant atrial and/or ventricular arrhythmias including but not limited to: atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, 2 degree or 3 degree heart block
