The purpose of the study is to assess the safety, tolerability and the HPV-specific immune responses of different doses of ISA101 vaccine with or without pegylated IFNα as combination therapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel.
To qualitatively assess the safety profile and the HPV-specific immune responses of ISA101b vaccine compared to ISA101 at the same dose levels.
To assess the safety and the HPV-specific immune responses of ISA101b vaccine with carboplatin, paclitaxel with or without bevacizumab.

|Official Title:||A Multicenter, Open Label Phase I/II Study to Determine the Safety and Immune Modulating Effects of the Therapeutic Human Papilloma Virus 16 (HPV16) E6/E7 Long Peptides Vaccine (ISA101/ISA101b) Immunotherapy in Combination With Standard of Care Therapy (Carboplatin and Paclitaxel With or Without Bevacizumab) in Women With HPV16 Positive Advanced or Recurrent Cervical Cancer Who Have no Curative Treatment Options|

The maximum total treatment duration for a patient is six cycles (1 cycle is 21 days) for a total of 18 weeks. On day 15 of cycles 2, 3 and 4 patients are to receive the vaccination scheme of ISA101/ISA101b. Patients will be vaccinated with a fixed dose of ISA101/ISA101b every three weeks for a total of three rounds of vaccination. Four dose levels of ISA101 have been tested. ISA101b will be tested in bridging cohorts.
Four dose levels ISA101/ISA101b
Other Name: HPV Type 16 E6/E7 Synthetic Long Peptides Vaccine
- HPV-specific immune responses [ Time Frame: 4 months ]HPV-specific immune responses to different doses of the ISA101 vaccine with or without pegylated interferon alpha (INFα) as combination therapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel will be determined. The HPV-specific immune responses to ISA101b will be qualitatively compared to the responses at the same dose level(s) of ISA101.
- Evaluate the clinical efficacy by antitumor efficacy according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 [ Time Frame: one year ]
- Evaluate the general responsiveness of the immune system as measured by explorative assays. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
General responsiveness of the immune system as measured by explorative assays in particular:
- Lymphocyte proliferation
- Antigen Presenting Cell (APC) function tests
- Assay of myeloid and lymphoid cell composition
- Recall proliferative responses of Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells(PBMCs) in response to common microbial antigens

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||Female|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Women ≥ 18 years of age.
- Cervical cancer confirmed by histology.
- Advanced or metastatic or recurrent cervical cancer confirmed by clinical and/or radiological proof with no curative treatment options.
- For cohort 10 (and 12), i.e. patients eligible to receive bevacizumab at each site per standard of care, patients may be primary stage IVB (including persistent) or first recurrent carcinoma of the uterine cervix (squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, or adenosquamous carcinoma). Prior treatment with chemotherapy for recurrent disease is not permitted. However, one prior line of chemotherapy with platinum during primary radio-chemotherapy or platinum-base chemotherapy as neoadjuvant chemotherapy prior to surgery is permitted
- Tumour must be HPV16 positive.
- Patients should be eligible for chemotherapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel, and have consented with chemotherapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel, before the start of the informed consent procedure for the study.
- Performance status (WHO scale/ECOG) 1.
- Written informed consent according to local guidelines.
- Written approval by the treating physician/investigator of his/her clinical judgment that the patient has a reasonable life expectancy and is sufficiently fit and motivated to complete the study treatment and comply to all study procedures conform the protocol.
- Prior treatment with anti-HPV agents.
- Chronic systemic steroid use. Local application (i.e. stable doses of topical or inhaled corticosteroids) is allowed.
- Less than 4 weeks since the last treatment with other cancer therapies, (i.e. endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, etc), less than 8 weeks for cranial radiotherapy, and less than 6 weeks for nitrosoureas and mitomycin C.
- Toxicities resulting from previous anti-cancer therapy must be resolved to ≤ grade 2.
- Recent treatment (within 30 days of first study treatment) with another investigational drug.
- Patients with known hypersensitivity to any component of the Investigational Medicinal Product.
Any contraindication to the use of authorized applied products (i.e. paclitaxel, carboplatin or bevacizumab).
Haematology and biochemistry:
- Inadequate bone marrow function: Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) < 1.5 x 109/L, or platelet count < 100 x 109/L or hemoglobin < 6 mmol/L.
Inadequate liver function, defined as:
- Serum (total) bilirubin > 2 x upper normal limit (ULN);
- Aspartate Aminotransferase (ASAT) or Alanine Aminotransferase (ALAT) > 2.5 x ULN (> 5 x ULN in patients with liver metastases);
- Alkaline phosphatase levels > 2.5 x ULN (> 5 x ULN in patients with liver metastases, or > 10 x ULN in patients with bone metastases).
- Clinical suspicion or radiological evidence of brain or leptomeningeal metastases.
- Previous or current malignancies at other sites, with the exception of basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin and with the exception of other malignancies from which the patient may be considered cured as evidenced by complete regression of all lesions >10 years ago.
- Active HIV, chronic hepatitis B or C infection.
