Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: NY-ESO-1
NY-ESO-1 combined with MPLA vaccine
Biological: NY-ESO-1 combined with MPLA
Each patient will receive six doses of the formulation, administered intra-muscular, with an interval of 4 weeks between doses, and the first immunization performed 6 weeks after the completion of standard treatment. NY-ESO-1 (250 mcg) amd MPLA (100 mcg).
Biological: NY-ESO-1 combined with MPLA vaccine
Immunization os cancer patients with NY-ESO-1 combined with MPLA vaccine

Detailed Description:
The safety and immunogenicity of the vaccine with the antigen NY-ESO-1 in combination with the MPLA will be evaluated in a phase 1 clinical trial conducted in patients with malignancies that express the antigen (lung, ovarian and melanoma). This study will involve 15 patients, who will receive 250 mcg of NY-ESO-1 and 100 mcg of MPLA.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • In this study, will be included fifteen patients aged over 18 years, with a confirmed diagnosis of malignant neoplasms, which have proven NY-ESO-1 expression by immunohistochemistry and have undergone the standard treatment.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Will be excluded from the study patients with continuous use of systemic steroids, immunosuppressive agents and antibiotics, and with severe chronic systemic disease.
