Vaccine Therapy in Treating Patients With Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Vaccines may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of vaccine therapy in treating patients who have breast cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Vaccination of High Risk Breast Cancer Patients With MUC-1 (Glycosylated) Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin Conjugates Plus the Immunological Adjuvant QS21|
|Study Start Date:||May 1999|
|Primary Completion Date:||June 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine if immunization with glycosylated MUC-1 antigen containing MUC-1(106) or MUC-1(33) with keyhole limpet hemocyanin conjugate plus immunological adjuvant QS21 induces an antibody, helper T cell and/or cytotoxic T cell response against MUC-1 in patients with high risk breast cancer expressing MUC-1.
OUTLINE: Patients receive glycosylated MUC-1 antigen containing MUC-1(106) or MUC-1(33) with keyhole limpet hemocyanin conjugate subcutaneously (SQ) plus immunological adjuvant QS21 SQ on weeks 1-3, 7, and 19 for a total of 5 vaccinations. Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 36 patients will be accrued for this study.
