Description

This is a Phase II study following up on a previous Phase I/II study in chemotherapy refractory metastatic disease with <90 day survival expectancy. In the Phase I/II study all patients progressed using RECIST criteria. However, 11/42 (26%) were alive at 1yr and 9/42 (21%) alive at 2 yr. Therefore, ...

This is a Phase II study following up on a previous Phase I/II study in chemotherapy refractory metastatic disease with <90 day survival expectancy. In the Phase I/II study all patients progressed using RECIST criteria. However, 11/42 (26%) were alive at 1yr and 9/42 (21%) alive at 2 yr. Therefore, CT scans did not correlate with clinical presentation and "pseudo-progression" was suspected. This study was designed to select subjects with visible tumor burden on the head, neck or tongue that could be measured and photographed so as not to rely solely on CT scans to determine anti-tumor debulking efficacy. Subjects are initially primed with intradermal AlloStim(TM) injections creating systemic anti-allo-specific cellular immunity. Tumor biopsy samples taken prior to dosing were processed into personalized Chaperone Rich Cell Lysate (CRCL) vaccine containing enriched heat shock proteins which are believed to chaperone tumor-specific neoantigens . AlloStim(TM) was then injected with CRCL into primed subjects to create tumor-specific cellular immunity. Subsequently, subjects are infused with intravenous AlloStim(TM) to cause extravasation of memory cells to the tumor lesions. The protocol including intradermal AlloStim(TM) day 0, 3, 7, 10. Intradermal AlloStim(TM)+CRCL on days 14, 17, 21, 24. Intravenous AlloStim(TM) day 28. This experimental treatment schedule will continue for 3 cycles.
