Brief Summary:
The main purpose of this study is to assess the clinical activity of Pembrolizumab and SurVaxM in participants with recurrent glioblastoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Recurrent Glioblastoma Drug: Pembrolizumab Drug: SurVaxM Drug: Sargramostim Drug: Montanide ISA 51 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Primary objective: Assess clinical activity of Pembrolizumab and SurVaxM in participants with recurrent glioblastoma using progression free survival at 6 months (PFS-6).

Secondary objective: : Assess safety and tolerability of Pembrolizumab and SurVaxM in participants with recurrent glioblastoma.

This is a Phase II study of two arms in participants with recurrent glioblastoma. Arm A will include participants with first recurrence of glioblastoma who have failed prior chemotherapy and radiation but have not received any immunotherapy. Arm B is an exploratory arm of 10 participants who have failed prior anti-PD1 therapy.

All patients will receive the study drug combination consisting of SurVaxM and pembrolizumab (PEM) with no randomization, stratification or dose escalation.
