Safety & Activity of P501-AS15 Vaccine as a First-line Treatment for Patients With Hormone-sensitive Prostate Cancer Who Show Rising PSA
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Patients with hormone-sensitive prostate cancer and rising PSA, after primary tumor treatment, will be treated with the P501-AS15 vaccine as out-patients. The maximum dose will be 16 vaccinations, given over a period of approximately one year. Thereafter, the patients' long-term safety and PSA status will be followed over a period of approximately 11 months.
Condition or disease
Biological: P501-AS15 vaccine
This Phase I/II study will be conducted according to a multicenter, open-label, single-group design at approximately ten centers in Europe. At least 21 HSPC patients with rising PSA after primary tumor treatment will be enrolled in this study. All patients will be treated as out-patients and will receive the same treatment. The maximum dose will be 16 vaccinations. Follow-up: The patients' long-term safety and PSA status will be followed over a period of 48 weeks. The Protocol Posting has been updated in order to comply with the FDA Amendment Act, Sep 2007.
