Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of dose-limiting toxicities and adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Occurrence of dose-limiting toxicities and adverse events whilst on study treatment (Day 1) and ending 30 days after the last study treatment administration; an expected average of 4 months

  • To evaluate the immune response to WT2725 [ Time Frame: Day 1 - within 28 days after last dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: July 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: WT2725
WT2725; injection
Biological: WT2725
WT2725 injection Study drug will be administered every 1-4 weeks

Detailed Description:

Treatment with other WT1 vaccines in clinical trials has shown evidence of immunogenicity and clinical response in various malignancies.

This study will assist with determining which dose level(s) to use in future clinical studies and will evaluate both clinical and immunological response.
