  Purpose

RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's white blood cells may make the body build an immune response to kill cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of vaccine therapy in treating patients who have chronic myelogenous leukemia.

Further study details as provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI):

Study Start Date: January 2001
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the feasibility of vaccination with autologous heat shock protein 70 in patients with chronic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia.
  • Determine the toxicity of this vaccination in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo leukapheresis to obtain peripheral mononuclear cells (PMNCs). Heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) is derived from the autologous PMNCs. Patients receive HSP70 intradermally once weekly for 8 weeks.

Patients are followed for 2 weeks.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 10 patients will be accrued for this study.
