Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the safety and tolerability of V930/V932 followed by EP in cancer patients [ Time Frame: Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether V930/V932 can elicit HER-2 specific and CEA specific immune responses measured using an ELISPOT assay [ Time Frame: Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 41

Study Completion Date: April 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Biological: V930
V930 - Over a 94 week duration, patients will receive a series of 5 injections (2.5 mg/injection), one every other week. Within 2 minutes of each injection of V930, each patient will be given an EP-IM injection consisting of two 60 msec pulses.
Experimental: 2
Biological: V932
V932 - Over a 94 week duration, patients will receive a series of 5 injections, 6 patients will initially received intramuscular V932 vaccinations at a low dose (0.5x109 vg/injection),and following a safety assessment, up to an additional 35 patients will be treated with the high dose V932 (0.5x1011 vg/injection).

Detailed Description:
The optional followup period for this study is 1 year after the last vaccination.
