The purpose of this study is to assess toxicities of angiogenic peptide vaccine therapy in treating HLA-A*2402 restricted patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hepatocellular Carcinoma Biological: antiangiogenic paptide vaccine Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 1 Study of HLA-A*2402 Restricted Antiangiogenic Peptide Vaccine Therapy Using Epitope Peptide Derived Feom VEGFR1 and VEGFR2 in Treating Patients With Unresectable, Recurrent, or Metastatic Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Further study details as provided by Fukushima Medical University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Toxicities as assessed by NCI-CACAE ver3 [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Differences of peptide specific CTL response in vitro among sequence of peptide vaccine administration [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • CD8 population [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • Change in level of regulatory T cells [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • Objective response rate [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Feasibility [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: March 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Vaccine
Biological: antiangiogenic paptide vaccine
for drugs include administration time frame
Other Name: VEGFR1 and VEGFR2 specific epitope vaccine

Detailed Description:
It has been required to develop new treatment modalities for patients with advanced heptatocellular carcinoma. Immunotherapy is one of the encouraging modalities for patients. We have to assess its toxicities, clinical response and immune responsiveness.
