Vaccine Therapy in Treating Patients With Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's white blood cells may make the body build an immune response to kill cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of vaccine therapy in treating patients who have chronic myelogenous leukemia.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Feasibility And Toxicity Study Of Vaccination With HSP70 For The Treatment Of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia In Chronic Phase|
|Study Start Date:||January 2001|
- Determine the feasibility of vaccination with autologous heat shock protein 70 in patients with chronic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia.
- Determine the toxicity of this vaccination in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo leukapheresis to obtain peripheral mononuclear cells (PMNCs). Heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) is derived from the autologous PMNCs. Patients receive HSP70 intradermally once weekly for 8 weeks.
Patients are followed for 2 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 10 patients will be accrued for this study.
