|Cancer Neoplasms||Biological: ACIT-1||Phase 1 Phase 2|
The immune system has an important role in helping prevent cancer by destroying early cancer cells. When cancer does develop antigen-specific immune (T) cells are still present in the blood but are either not responding or are not effective. Vaccines stimulate these T cells to respond and kill cancer cells.
ACIT-1 is designed to stimulate tumour antigen-specific T cells to respond and kill cancer cells.

Experimental: Immunotherapy - pancreatic cancer
Intradermal injection of ACIT-1 cellular immunotherapy, a total of 2 doses, 4 weeks apart of either 10e5, 10e6, 10e7 or 3x10e7 cells. For patients with pancreatic or haematological cancer. Treatment will run concurrently with standard chemotherapy.
Experimental: Immunotherapy - other late stage cancers
Intradermal injection of ACIT-1 cellular immunotherapy, a total of 2 doses, 4 weeks apart of either 10e5, 10e6, 10e7 or 3x10e7 cells. For patients with other late stage cancers, not receiving any other standard treatment.
- Toxicity [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to 20 weeks. ]Toxicity based on the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) v4.03.
- Clinical benefit [ Time Frame: From start of treatment up to 14 months. ]Survival time
- Immune responses [ Time Frame: Baseline, weeks 4, 8 and 20 ]Changes in tumour antigen specific immune responses in the blood compared to baseline
