Vaccine Plus Interleukin-2 in Treating Patients With Advanced Melanoma
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of vaccine therapy plus interleukin-2 in treating patients who have advanced melanoma. Vaccines made from a person's cancer cells may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill cancer cells. Melanoma vaccine plus interleukin-2 may kill more cancer cells
Stage IV Melanoma
Biological: gp100:209-217(210M) peptide vaccine
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Melanoma Vaccine (NSC #683472/675756, IND #6123) and Low-Dose, Subcutaneous Interleukin-2 in Advanced Melanoma|
- Clinical response rate (CR or PR) [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment until disease progression/recurrence, assessed up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Response duration [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The Kaplan-Meier method will be used to estimate duration of response.
- Progression-free intervals [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The Kaplan-Meier method will be used to estimate time to progression.
- Immunologic response rate using ELISPOT assay [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Described in terms of frequency and kinetics. Agreement between clinical and immunological response will be measured using the kappa coefficient.
|Study Start Date:||March 2001|
|Primary Completion Date:||March 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (gp100:209-217, aldesleukin )
Patients receive gp100:209-217(210M) emulsified in Montanide ISA-51 SC on day 1 and interleukin-2 SC on days 1-5 and 8-13. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients with a CR receive 3 additional courses after achieving CR.

I. Determine clinical response rates in patients with advanced melanoma treated with gp100:209-217(210M) melanoma vaccine and low-dose interleukin-2.
II. Assess response duration and progression-free intervals in these patients receiving this treatment.
Patients receive gp100:209-217(210M) emulsified in Montanide ISA-51 subcutaneously (SC) on day 1 and interleukin-2 SC on days 1-5 and 8-13. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients with a complete response (CR) receive 3 additional courses after achieving CR.
Patients are followed every 9 weeks for 3 years or until disease recurrence.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 25-50 patients will be accrued for this study within 3.5 years.
