  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to test the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of Personalized Genomic Vaccine 001 (PGV001) in subjects with advanced non-hematologic malignancies. PGV001 is a peptide vaccine that is based on a patient's own tumor sequence. Each patient's tumor is sequenced and peptides that correspond to the tumors are made. These peptides combined with the adjuvant Poly-ICLC (Hiltonol®, Oncovir) make PGV001. The adjuvant Poly-ICLC is added to boost the immune response to the peptides and together will expand immune cells to target cancer.

    7. All epithelial carcinoma of the ovary, fallopian tube, or other uterine adnexa
  • The subject must be medically capable of providing the necessary tissue sample for sequencing, either by surgical resection or open-surgical or core biopsy sampling of the primary tumor.

    a. This requirement may be satisfied by providing an archival tissue sample in the form of a formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded or frozen tissue block from an earlier resection.

  • The subject must have no measurable disease at the time of investigational product administration.

    1. The subject must complete all prior surgery requiring general anesthesia at least four (4) weeks before administration of the investigational product. The subject must complete all surgery requiring local/epidural anesthesia at least seventy-two (72) hours prior to administration of the investigational product.
    2. The subject must complete all prior systemic chemotherapy therapy, and all adverse events have either returned to baseline or have stabilized at least four (4) weeks prior to administration of the investigational product.
    3. The subject must complete all prior systemic radiation therapy at least four (4) weeks prior to administration of the investigational product. The subject must complete all prior focal radiation therapy at least two (2) weeks prior to the administration of the investigational agent. The subject must not have received a radiopharmaceutical within eight (8) weeks prior to the administration of the investigational product.
    4. The subject may continue hormonal therapy (i.e tamoxifen, anastrozole) during the study.
  • The risk of disease recurrence with a five (5) year time period, as estimated by the treating physician, must be greater than or equal thirty percent (30%).
  • The subject must have a life expectancy greater than twelve (12) months at the time of screening.

    2. Platelet count ≥ 50,000/mm3,
    3. Creatinine ≤ 2.5 mg/dL,
