NCT02526316
First received: August 10, 2015
Last updated: June 30, 2017
Last verified: June 2017
  Purpose
The study will include 10 patients with HPV-associated ano-genital cancer (cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile, anal) or HPV-associated head and neck cancer, who are planned to receive a cisplatin-based chemotherapy (alternatively a carboplatin-based chemotherapy may be selected by investigators choice). Patients will receive P16_37-63 peptide (100 µg) combined with Montanide® ISA-51 VG subcutaneously once a week for four weeks, followed by a 4 week rest period (1 cycle). The vaccination is to be started one week before the initiation or continuation of the cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Concurrent radiation is allowed and should be documented. The vaccination schedule will be repeated up to a total of 3 cycles (= 6 months) or until progression or intolerable toxicity. If chemotherapy is withheld (e.g. for toxicity), vaccination treatment can be continued.

Arms Assigned Interventions
P16_37-63 Vaccination
Patients will receive P16_37-63 peptide (100 μg) combined with Montanide® ISA-51 VG subcutaneously once a week for four weeks, followed by a 4 week rest period (1 cycle). The vaccination is to be started one week before the initiation or continuation of the cisplatin-based chemotherapy.
Biological: P16_37-63 peptide combined with Montanide® ISA-51 VG
Patients will receive P16_37-63 peptide (100 µg) combined with Montanide® ISA-51 VG vaccination subcutaneously once a week for four weeks, followed by a 4 week rest period
Biological: P16_37-63 peptide without Montanide® ISA-51 VG
Patients will receive 30 mcg P16_37-63 peptide injected intradermally for test on delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) reactions.

Detailed Description:

10 patients with HPV- and p16INK4a-positive cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile, anal or head and neck cancer will be enrolled. The p16INK4a-peptide (p16INK4a-37-63, 100 mcg) mixed with MONTANIDE ISA-51 VG (0.3 ml) will be administered subcutaneously once weekly for four weeks, followed by a 4-week rest period (1 cycle). This schedule will be repeated for a total of 3 cycles (= 6 months) or until tumor progression or intolerable toxicity is documented. The first application will be done one week before chemotherapy initiation or continuation. Concurrent radiation is allowed and should be documented. If chemotherapy is withhold for toxicity, vaccination treatment can be continued.

Patients will be seen at baseline/screening and at every visit for safety assessment until disease progression or discontinuation of trial therapy for other reasons. Immunological assessments will be made in all patients. The immunological assessment includes the delayed time hypersensitivity response (DTH) against the P16_37-63 peptide. Therefore in week 1, 9, 17 and 25, 30 mcg P16_37-63 peptide solution without MONTANIDE ISA-51 VG will be injected at a separate site from the vaccination site intradermally. Immunological responses are evaluated at baseline and after vaccination in weeks 9, 17 and 25 (ELISPOT) and in weeks 1, 3, 9, 11, 17, 19 and 25 (ELISA) and are compared to the antigen-specific immune response measured before vaccination (week 1). Radiological tumor assessment (CT, MRI) will be performed at baseline and then every 8 weeks (after every cycle). There will be a follow- up visit four weeks after the last vaccination for safety. Further follow-up regarding progression and death can be performed, e.g. via a phone call. Autoimmunity will be assessed every 8 weeks. Safety of the immunization will be analyzed as assessed by the number and severity of adverse events categorized according to CTC criteria
