Immunotherapy holds promise in oncology for the potential to provide targeted anti-tumor therapy with minimal adverse events. The goal of this study is to assess immunotherapy directed to CD133 in an autologous dendritic cell product called ICT-121. CD133 antigen is overexpressed on many types of cancer cells and is associated with shortened survival. CD133 positive cancer stem cells are resistant to chemotherapy. Patients with recurrent glioblastoma who have the HLA A2 phenotype will receive autologous vaccine of DC pulsed with purified peptides from CD133. Approximately 20 patients with any recurrence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) will be treated. After informed consent and screening, patients will undergo apheresis to collect peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). Monocytes will be purified and cultured into dendritic cells (DC) that are pulsed with purified peptides from CD133 antigen. The pulsed dendritic cells will then be aliquoted and frozen. Patients will have the autologous DCs reinfused intradermally. Patients will receive at least four intradermal injections of the autologous DC vaccine and additional vaccines during a maintenance phase. The goal is to induce a cytotoxic T cell response to CD133 positive cells. The primary objective of the study is to assess safety and tolerability. Clinical response rates will be monitored as well as the immune responses to CD133.
