|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Acute Myelogenous Leukemia AML||Biological: DC AML Vaccine||Phase 2|
- On this study participants will receive the DC AML vaccine and GM-CSF 4-8 weeks after completion of chemotherapy for acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). GM-CSF is a drug that stimulates white blood cells and is given with the DC AML Vaccine in an effort to enhance the effect of the vaccine. Participants will receive 2-3 doses of the vaccine at 4 week intervals.
- All participants will undergo the following procedures: Isolation of tumor cells by either bone marrow biopsy or blood draw; Initial chemotherapy for AML with standard therapy; Leukopheresis (collection of white blood cells from the blood).
- All participants will also have blood tests, a physical exam, and an electrocardiogram prior to each dose of vaccine.
- Four weeks following the final vaccination, participants will undergo a skin test called "delayed-type hypersensitivity" (DTH). This is an injection of the tumor cells under the skin to measure how the immune system responds. The tumor cells are broken up and irradiated to prevent their growth.

DC AML Fusion Vaccine
Biological: DC AML Vaccine
Group 1: 2-3 doses of the vaccine at 4 week intervals
- Toxicity [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To assess the toxicity associated with treating AML patients with DC/AML fusion cells in the post-chemotherapy setting
- Immune Response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To explore immunological response to DC/AML fusion vaccination in patients who have achieved a chemotherapy-induced remission.
- T-cell and Immune Response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To correlate levels of circulating activated and regulatory T cells with immunologic response
- Disease Response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To define anti-tumor effects by determining time to disease progression.
