Experimental: Intra-tumoral Electroporation of pIL-12
Participants will receive intra-tumoral injection of pIL-12 followed immediately by electrical discharge around the tumor site resulting in electroporation of plasmid DNA into tumor cells. For each lesion selected for therapy, a total of three electroporation treatments will be performed.
Biological: IL-12p DNA
Plasmid IL-12 will be administered as an intratympanic (IT) injection.
Other Names:Procedure: Intratumoral Electroporation
The electroporation apparatus with the electrical contacts will be placed around the tumor site and activated.
Other Name: plasmid electroporation
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]MTD of intralesionally electroporated IL-12 plasmid (pIL-12) as well as a recommended dose for Phase II study. Dose-Limiting Toxicity (DLT): will be defined as hematologic toxicities or diarrhea greater than grade 3, and nonhematologic toxicities greater than grade 2 as defined in the NCI common toxicity criteria, Version 3.0. Significant local skin breakdown, cellulitis, bleeding or ulceration will preclude treatment of particular tumor nodules although treatment of other nodules can continue.
- Local and Systemic Response [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Number of participants with tumor response.
- Local and Systemic Expression of IL-12 and IFN Gamma [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Cytokine expression measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
