Brief Summary:
This Phase II will evaluate a new type of ovarian cancer immunotherapy based on a fundamentally new approach that has been successfully tested in a published clinical study of liver cancer. We will test new tableted preparation, V3-OVA, obtained from hydrolyzed, inactivated blood and tumors of patients with cancer of ovaries. Study will last 3 months, 20 patients will be recruited, given one pill per day for three months. The primary clinical endpoint is effect on tumor size and burden after 3 months. Secondary endpoint will be effect on levels of tumor markers on monthly basis compared to baseline.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Biological: Tableted vaccine (V3-OVA) containing ovarian cancer antigens Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Ovarian cancer (OC) - a malignant disease affecting the ovarian tissue - is the sixth most diagnosed cancer among women and causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. For treatment of OC, surgical intervention, chemotherapy, as well as radiation methods are used. Despite treatment, about 70% of patients have a relapse. Many different types of immunotherapy (especially checkpoint inhibitors) of OC being tested, but so far the successes have been insignificant, and serious side effects are frequent and unpredictable. This Phase II will evaluate a new type of ovarian cancer immunotherapy based on a fundamentally new approach that has been successfully tested in a published clinical study of liver cancer. We will test new tableted preparation, V3-OVA, obtained from hydrolyzed, inactivated blood and tumor tissues of patients with cancer of ovaries. Study will last 3 months, 20 patients will be recruited, given one pill per day for three months. The primary clinical endpoint is effect on tumor size and burden after 3 months. Secondary endpoint will be effect on levels of tumor markers on monthly basis compared to baseline.
