Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have peritoneal recurrence of epithelial adenocarcinoma or carcinosarcoma of ovarian, tubal, or peritoneal origin. Histologic documentation of the original primary tumor is required via the pathology report. Original tumor blocks from primary diagnosis will be reviewed by our study pathologist at Magee.
  • Patients must have completed front-line taxane/platinum-based therapy of their primary tumor with a progression free interval of greater than 6 months from last therapy and measurable relapsed disease must be present in the abdomen greater than 1 cm.
  • Patients must have documentation of a defined initial progression free interval (PFI 1) of greater than 6 months following front-line therapy.
  • Patients must have documentation of relapse that includes either doubling of CA125 serum levels confirmed by measurements greater than one week apart or identification of a new measurable lesion greater than 1 cm in the peritoneal cavity either by CT/MRI, PET/CT scan or physical exam (expanding pockets of ascites fluid that may serve as an alternative source of tumor cells) if the index lesion is not accessible for biopsy for vaccine formulation. Recurrence outside the peritoneal cavity will be accessed using standard RECIST criteria.
  • Patients must be reasonable candidates for laparoscopy and IP platinum regimen with no prior evidence of clinically significant intra-abdominal adhesions, persistent abdominal wall infections, renal toxicity, or bowel obstruction.
  • Prior to enrollment, the CA125 should have been elevated to at least double the level seen at the nadir value following the first complete response and measurable intraperitoneal disease that can be identified radiologically and accessed by laparoscopy/laparotomy for a biopsy and peritoneal catheter placement.
  • Patients must have documented available tumor greater than 1 cm of bulk tumor mass or 200 cc of ascites fluid for tumor isolation prior to starting chemotherapy.
  • Patients of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to the study entry and be practicing an effective form of contraception. If applicable, patients must discontinue breastfeeding prior to the first date of treatment on this study.
  • Patient may be required to undergo leukapheresis (depending on the study phase/cohort) and must agree to leukapheresis if so assigned.
  • Patients must agree to appropriate clinical monitoring to receive the study regimens.
  • Bone marrow function: Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1,500/µL, equivalent to CTCAE v4 grade 1. Platelets greater than or equal to 100,000/µL; hemoglobin greater than or equal to 8.0 g/dL.
  • Renal function: creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 x institutional upper limit normal (ULN), CTCAE v4 grade 1.
  • Hepatic function: Bilirubin less than or equal to 1.5 x ULN (CTCAE v4 grade 1). SGOT and alkaline phosphatase less than or equal to 2.5 x ULN (CTCAE v4 grade 1).
  • Patients who have signed informed consent and authorization permitting release of personal health information.
  • Patients must be ≥ 18 years of age.
  • Patients must have a GOG Performance Status of 0 or 1.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have an active autoimmune disease (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), ankylosing spondylitis).
  • Patients with a known allergy to cisplatin chemotherapy. Patients with carboplatin allergy may be included if they tolerate a test dose of IV cisplatin given in monitored floor conditions.
  • Patients being chronically treated with immunosuppressive drugs such as cyclosporin, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), or systemic corticosteroids.
  • Patients with a recognized immunodeficiency disease including cellular immunodeficiencies, hypogammaglobulinemia or dysgammaglobulinemia; patients who have acquired, hereditary, or congenital immunodeficiencies.
  • Patients with uncontrolled diseases other than cancer will be excluded.
  • Patients who are pregnant or nursing.
  • Patients who have contraindications to the use of NSAID's like chronic renal failure, coronary artery disease, or bleeding ulcers.
  • Patients with tumors of low malignant potential, except ovarian pseudomyxoma or with no peritoneal disease.
  • Patients with a history of other invasive malignancies, with the exception of non-melanoma skin cancer, are excluded if there is any evidence of other malignancy being present within the last five years. Patients are also excluded if their previous cancer treatment contraindicates this protocol therapy.
  • Patients with previous pelvic radiation therapy.
