NCT02061423
First received: February 10, 2014

  Purpose
This trial will determine the safety and immune activity of HER-2 pulsed DC1 vaccine in participants with high risk HER-2pos breast cancer with residual disease post neoadjuvant therapy. Participants will have estrogen independent stage I III breast cancer with residual disease in the breast or axillary nodes post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Mammogram, laboratory studies, CT, and leukapheresis will be performed, in addition to vaccine administration.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: up to 60 minutes post vaccine ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Blood pressure will be obtained just prior to the vaccination then, every 15 minutes for the first hour after the dose is given.

  • Temperature [ Time Frame: up to 60 minutes post vaccine ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Temperature will be obtained just prior to the vaccination then, every 15 minutes for the first hour after the dose is given.

  • Pulse [ Time Frame: up to 60 minutes post vaccine ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Pulse will be obtained just prior to the vaccination then, every 15 minutes for the first hour after the dose is given.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immune Response [ Time Frame: 6-8 weeks, 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants will undergo leukapheresis after completion of 6 vaccines and 3 boost vaccines for the purpose of obtaining lymphocytes and monocytes for in vitro immunologic testing.

  • Mammogram [ Time Frame: 6-8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All participants will have a post-vaccine bilateral mammogram to evaluate response to vaccination. Mammograms will be performed within two weeks after the 6th vaccination.

Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: HER-2 Pulsed Dendritic Cell Vaccine
6 weekly HER-2 pulsed dendritic cell vaccines followed by 3 booster vaccines once every 3 months. Each dose will consist of between 1.0-2.0 x 107 cells and will be injected into 1-2 different normal groin lymph nodes or axillary nodes.
Biological: HER-2 pulsed Dendritic Cell Vaccine
6 weekly HER-2 pulsed dendritic cell vaccines followed by 3 booster vaccines once every 3 months. Each dose will consist of between 1.0-2.0 x 107 cells and will be injected into 1-2 different normal groin lymph nodes or axillary nodes.

Detailed Description:

Dendritic cell cancer vaccines combined with chemotherapy may increase complete responses giving breast cancer specific immune cells greater opportunity to function while the immune repertoire is being shifted by chemotherapy to anti-breast cancer response and offer the chance to test secondary prevention of breast cancer in high risk settings. Participants with estrogen independent (as determined by lack of estrogen receptor expression on primary or residual tumor) stage I III breast cancer with residual disease in the breast or axillary nodes post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy will be undergo mammograms, laboratory studies, and leukapheresis. Vaccines will be manufactured using participants' leukapheresis product, which will be administered in the Clinical Research Center 1 Dulles Building weekly for 6 weeks. Three to six booster vaccines will be administered following the initial induction vaccines, should the participant demonstrate no HER-3 or HER-1 response post induction vaccines. Immune analysis will be done after participant receives all induction vaccines and again after they receive all booster vaccines.

This study began at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania and will be continued at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute.
