Study Description
Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of vaccine therapy in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that has spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced). Vaccines made from peptides or antigens may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells.

Recurrent Melanoma Stage IIIB Skin Melanoma Stage IIIC Skin Melanoma Stage IV Skin Melanoma Biological: Recombinant Human Hsp110-gp100 Chaperone Complex Vaccine Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis Phase 1

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and clinically appropriate dose of human heat shock protein (hsp)110-gp100 chaperone complex melanoma vaccine (recombinant hsp110-gp100 chaperone complex vaccine) to recommend a phase II dose in stage IIIB/C and stage IV metastatic melanoma patients.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To examine the effect of the recombinant human hsp110-gp100 chaperone complex vaccine on measurable clinical tumor.

II. To determine gp100 and hsp110 specific cell mediated and humoral immune responses elicited by the chaperone complex vaccine.

III. To determine the effect of dose and serial administration of the chaperone complex vaccine on cell mediated and humoral immune responses.

IV. To quantify patient characteristics (human leukocyte antigen [HLA] subtype, immune cell function, etc.) that may correlate with immune response to the chaperone complex vaccine.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive recombinant hsp110-gp100 chaperone complex vaccine intradermally (ID) on days 1, 15, and 43 in the absence of unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 6 months.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MTD of recombinant human hsp110-gp100 chaperone complex melanoma vaccine based on the probability of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), graded according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after the last vaccine dose ]
    DLT is defined as grade 3 or 4 toxicity or grade 3 injection site toxicity, with the exception of grade 3 rigors/chills which will be tolerated for 48-72 hours if attributable to vaccine reaction.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective tumor response according to RECIST version 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Recombinant hsp110-gp100 chaperone complex vaccine specific cell mediated and humoral immune responses elicited by the chaperone complex vaccine as well as the effect of dose and serial administration on these responses will be assessed through the correlative science studies.

  • Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) =< 1.5 x ULN
  • Have measurable disease per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 criteria or physical exam
  • An anticipated overall survival of at least 6 months
  • Patients of child-bearing potential must agree to use acceptable contraceptive methods (e.g., double barrier) during treatment
  • Patient or legal representative must understand the investigational nature of this study and sign an Independent Ethics Committee/Institutional Review Board approved written informed consent form prior to receiving any study related procedure
  • Patients must have undergone/undergo testing for v-raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1 (BRAF) V600 mutation status
  • Patients must have documented, clinically measurable 7th edition American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) stage IIIB/C (bulky nodal and/or in transit disease) or stage IV (distant metastatic) melanoma; patients with brain metastases that have been appropriately treated with surgical resection and/or radiation are eligible for inclusion if they meet the performance status and life expectancy criteria; patients who are BRAF V600E mutation positive need to have failed, refused, or be ineligible for at least 2 lines of therapy (vemurafenib plus one other regimen)
  • Stage IIIB/C patients must have refused, be ineligible for, or have failed at least one standard of care regional therapy (isolated limb perfusion or infusion) or one non-vaccine based systemic therapy (such as, high dose interleukin [IL]-2, dacarbazine/temozolomide, ipilimumab, or participation in a clinical trial); patients who are BRAF V600E mutation positive need to have failed, refused, or be ineligible for at least 2 lines of therapy (vemurafenib plus one other regimen)
  • Stage IV patients must have refused, be ineligible for, or have failed at least one non-vaccine based systemic therapy (such as, high dose IL-2, dacarbazine/temozolomide, ipilimumab, or participation in a clinical trial); patients who are BRAF V600E mutation positive need to have failed, refused, or be ineligible for at least 2 lines of therapy (vemurafenib plus one other regimen)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant or nursing female patients
