  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether vaccination with tumor antigenic peptides and both IMP321/LAG-3 and Montanide adjuvants can induce an immune response in melanoma patients and to assess the safety and tolerability of this vaccination. Tumor responses following this vaccination will also be documented.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of vaccination will be assessed according to NCI CTC scale [ Time Frame: Change from baseline at week 31 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Immunological response (tumor antigen specific CD4 and CD8 T cell reactivity) will be measured by Tetramer analysis and ELISpot assays [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in CD8 T cells reactivity at week 31 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Tumor response will be assessed by radiology in patients with measurable disease [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in tumor response at week 31 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 27
Study Start Date: June 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group 1
2 vaccine injections in same limb (vaccine 1 : NY-ESO-1, MAGE-3.A2, NA-17 peptides + IMP321 + Montanide) (vaccine 2 : Melan-A, MAGE-A3-DP4 peptides + IMP321 + Montanide)
Biological: 2 vaccine injections in 1 limb
All participants receive the vaccine separated in 2 syringes with syringe 1 containing NA-17, MAGE-3.A2 and NY-ESO-1 peptides with IMP321/LAG3 ± Montanide, and syringe 2 containing Melan-A and MAGE-A3-DP4 peptides with IMP321/LAG-3 ± Montanide. The content of each syringe is injected s.c. in the same limb at about 5 cm distance from each other.
Experimental: Group 2
2 vaccine injections in different limbs (vaccine 1: NY-ESO-1, MAGE-3.A2, NA-17 peptides + IMP321 + Montanide) (vaccine 2: Melan-A, MAGE-A3-DP4 peptides + IMP321 + Montanide)
Biological: 2 vaccine injections in different limbs
All participants receive the vaccine separated in 2 syringes with syringe 1 containing NA-17, MAGE-3.A2 and NY-ESO-1 peptides with IMP321/LAG3 ± Montanide, and syringe 2 containing Melan-A and MAGE-A3-DP4 peptides with IMP321/LAG-3 ± Montanide.The content of each syringe is injected s.c. in different limbs.
Experimental: Group 3
2 vaccine injections in different limbs (vaccine 1: NY-ESO-1, MAGE-3.A2, NA-17 peptides + IMP321 + Montanide) (vaccine 2: Melan-A peptide + IMP321 + Montanide)
Biological: 2 vaccine injections in different limbs, the vaccine does not contain the MHC class II peptide MAGE-A3-DP4
All participants receive the vaccine separated in 2 syringes with syringe 1 containing NA-17, MAGE-3.A2 and NY-ESO-1 peptides with IMP321/LAG3 ± Montanide, and syringe 2 containing Melan-A peptide with IMP321/LAG-3 ± Montanide. The content of each syringe is injected s.c. in different limbs.
