|Brief Title ICMJE||Vaccine Therapy With or Without Fludarabine in Treating Patients With Stage IV Kidney Cancer|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Phase II Pilot Study of Tumor-Loaded Dendritic Cells Alone or Following a Non-Myeloablative Conditioning Regimen in Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma|
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's tumor cells and white blood cells may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining vaccine therapy with fludarabine may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying vaccine therapy and fludarabine to see how well they work compared to vaccine therapy alone in treating patients with stage IV kidney cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a pilot, randomized study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
All patients undergo surgery to remove tumor at metastatic sites to generate autologous tumor lysate. Patients then undergo leukapheresis to obtain peripheral blood mononuclear cells for the generation of dendritic cells (DC). The DC are then exposed to autologous tumor lysate and keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Patients are followed at 1, 3, and 7-9 weeks, at 4, 6, 9, and 12 months, and then every 6 months for 2 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 28 patients (14 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study within 2-3 years.
