HER-2 Pulsed DC Vaccine to Prevent Recurrence of Invasive Breast Cancer (Adjuvant)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.
Sponsor:
Collaborator:
Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT02063724
First received: February 6, 2014
Last updated: July 7, 2017
Last verified: July 2017
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and immunogenicity of HER-2 pulsed DC1 vaccine in high risk HER-2 high and intermediate expression breast cancers. Participants will have HER-2 driven IBC at least Stage IIIA with N2 following chemotherapy with/without trastuzumab or recurrence exclusive of new primary tumor but rendered NED. Mammogram, laboratory studies, CT, and leukapheresis will be performed, in addition to vaccine administration.

Condition Intervention Phase
Breast Cancer Biological: HER-2 pulsed Dendritic Cell Vaccine Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Pilot Phase I HER-2 Pulsed DC Vaccine to Prevent Recurrence for Patients With HER-2 Driven High Risk Invasive Breast Cancer

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: 15, 30, 45, & 60 minutes post vaccine ]
    Blood pressure will be obtained just prior to the vaccination then every 15 minutes for the first hour after the dose is given in order to identify and measure any change from baseline.

  • Change in Temperature [ Time Frame: 15, 30, 45, & 60 minutes post vaccine ]
    Temperature will be obtained just prior to the vaccination then every 15 minutes for the first hour after the dose is given in order to identify and measure any change from baseline.

  • Change in Pulse [ Time Frame: 15, 30, 45, & 60 minutes post vaccine ]
    Pulse will be obtained just prior to the vaccination then every 15 minutes for the first hour after the dose is given in order to identify and measure any change from baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immune Response [ Time Frame: 6-8 weeks, 1 year ]
    Participants will undergo leukapheresis after completion of 6 vaccines and 3 boost vaccines for the purpose of obtaining lymphocytes and monocytes for in vitro immunologic testing.

  • Mammogram [ Time Frame: 6-8 weeks ]
    All participants will have a post-vaccine bilateral mammogram to evaluate response to vaccination. Mammograms will be performed within two weeks after the 6th vaccination.


Enrollment: 15
Study Start Date: January 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: HER-2 Pulsed Dendritic Cell Vaccine
6 weekly HER-2 pulsed dendritic cell vaccines followed by 3 booster vaccines once every 3 months. Each dose will consist of between 1.0-2.0 x 10^7 cells and will be injected into 1-2 different normal groin lymph nodes or axillary nodes.
Biological: HER-2 pulsed Dendritic Cell Vaccine
6 weekly HER-2 pulsed dendritic cell vaccines followed by 3 booster vaccines once every 3 months. Each dose will consist of between 1.0-2.0 x 10^7 cells and will be injected into 1-2 different normal groin lymph nodes or axillary nodes.

Detailed Description:

Dendritic cell cancer vaccines combined with chemotherapy may increase complete responses giving breast cancer specific immune cells greater opportunity to function while the immune repertoire is being shifted by chemotherapy to anti-breast cancer response and offer the chance to test secondary prevention of breast cancer in high risk settings. Participants with HER-2 driven IBC at least Stage IIIA with N2 (4 positive nodes) following chemotherapy with or without trastuzumab or those with recurrence exclusive of new primary tumor but rendered NED will be undergo mammograms, laboratory studies, and leukapheresis. Vaccines will be manufactured using participants' leukapheresis product, which will be administered in the Clinical Research Center 1 Dulles Building weekly for 6 weeks. Three booster vaccines will be administered at 3 month intervals following the initial induction vaccines. Immune analysis will be done after participant receives all induction vaccines and again after they receive all booster vaccines.

This study began at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania and will be continued at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute.
