Further study details as provided by Dendreon:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • A descriptive summarization of key product parameters for sipuleucel-T produced at a European manufacturing facility. [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 month from first product manufactured ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Key product parameters are measured with each product manufactured and will be summarized:

    • CD54+ cell count
    • cumulative CD54 upregulation
    • cumulative total nucleated cell (TNC) count
    • product viability (percentage)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the safety of sipuleucel-T manufactured at a European manufacturing facility. [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety will be assessed by collecting adverse events, laboratory samples, vital signs, ECOG performance status, and physical examinations.

Estimated Enrollment: 45
Study Start Date: June 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: sipuleucel-T
Each dose of sipuleucel-T contains a minimum of 50 million autologous CD54+ cells activated with PAP-GM-CSF. The recommended course of therapy for sipuleucel-T is 3 complete doses, given at approximately 2-week intervals.
Biological: sipuleucel-T
Each dose of sipuleucel-T contains a minimum of 50 million autologous CD54+ cells activated with PAP-GM-CSF. The recommended course of therapy for sipuleucel-T is 3 complete doses, given at approximately 2-week intervals.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically documented adenocarcinoma of the prostate
  • Metastatic disease as evidenced by soft tissue and/or bony metastases on bone scan and/or computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen and pelvis at any time prior to registration
  • Castrate resistant prostate cancer
  • Serum PSA ≤ 5.0 ng/mL
  • Castration levels of testosterone (≤ 50 ng/dL; ≤ 1.74 nmol/L) achieved via medical or surgical castration. Surgical castration must have occurred at least 3 months prior to registration.
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 1
  • Adequate hematologic, renal, and liver function
  • Negative serology tests indicating no active infection with human immunodeficiency virus types 1 and 2 (HIV-1/2), human T cell lymphotropic virus types 1 and 2 (HTLV-I/II), and Hepatitis B and C viruses.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The presence of known brain metastases
  • A requirement for systemic immunosuppressive therapy for any reason
  • Treatment with any investigational vaccine within 2 years prior to registration
  • Any previous treatment with sipuleucel-T
  • Any previous treatment with ipilimumab (Yervoy[TM], MDX-010, or MDX-101) or denosumab (Xgeva[TM])
  • Pathologic long-bone fractures, imminent pathologic long-bone fracture (cortical erosion on radiography > 50%), or spinal cord compression
  • Known malignancies other than prostate cancer that are likely to require treatment within 6 months of registration
  • A history of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to sipuleucel-T or GM-CSF
  • More than 2 chemotherapy regimens at any time prior to registration
  • Treatment with any chemotherapy within 90 days of registration
  • Received granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) or GM-CSF within 90 days prior to registration
  • Treatment with any of the following medications or interventions within 28 days of registration:
  • Systemic corticosteroids. Use of inhaled, intranasal, intra-articular, and topical steroids is acceptable, as is a short course (i.e., ≤ 1 day) of corticosteroids to prevent a reaction to the IV contrast used for CT scans.
  • Non-steroidal anti-androgens (e.g., bicalutamide, flutamide, or nilutamide)
  • External beam radiation therapy or major surgery requiring general anesthetic
  • Any other systemic therapy for prostate cancer including secondary hormonal therapies, such as megestrol acetate (Megace®), diethylstilbestrol (DES), and ketoconazole. Medical castration therapy is not exclusionary.
  • Immunosuppressive therapy
  • Treatment with any other investigational product
  • Any infection requiring parenteral antibiotic therapy or causing fever (temperature > 100.5°F or 38.1°C) within 7 days prior to registration.
  • Any medical intervention or other condition which, in the opinion of the Investigator or the Dendreon Medical Monitor, could compromise adherence with study requirements or otherwise compromise the study's objectives.
