Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: March 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Phase I study Biological: VEGFR1-1084, VEGFR2-169, and gemcitabine
One mg of each peptide will be administered by subcutaneous injection on days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of each 28-day treatment cycles. Gemcitabine will be administered intravenously at a fixed dose of 1000mg/m2 on day 1, 8 and 15.

Detailed Description:

Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1 and 2 (VEGFR1 andVEGFR2) are essential targets to tumor angiogenesis, and we identified that peptides derived from these receptors significantly induce the effective tumor specific CTL response in vitro and in vivo. According to these findings, in this trial, we evaluate the safety, tolerability and immune response of these peptide emulsified with Montanide ISA 51 in combination with gemcitabine
