Incidence of toxicity, assessed according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
The maximum grade of toxicity for each category of interest will be recorded for each patient and the summary results will be tabulated by category and grade.
Toxicity of drug (012140-2) [ Time Frame: Immediately after first dose for 24 weeks, death or progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Complete list of historical versions of study NCT01250470 on Archive Site
Immune response, defined as a patient who has responded in either interferon gamma (IFN-γ) enzyme-linked immunosorbent spot (ELISPOT) or multimer assays [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
For both assays, time course and magnitude of responses will be plotted and data will be treated using mixed-effect modeling. In addition, Fisher's exact test will be used to determine whether ELISPOT and multimer responses are associated. Additional exploratory analyses will be done as appropriate, and will be data-driven; hypothesis testing is not anticipated. Results will be displayed in plots and tables.
  • Immune response [ Time Frame: Baseline, weeks 2, 4, 6,12, 16, 20 and 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Therapeutic efficacy [ Time Frame: Baseline, weeks 8 and 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Vaccine Therapy and Sargramostim in Treating Patients With Malignant Glioma
Phase I Study of Safety, Tolerability and Immunological Effects of SVN53-67/M57-KLH in Patients With Survivin-Positive Malignant Gliomas

This phase I trial is studying the side effects of vaccine therapy and sargramostim in treating patients with malignant glioma. Vaccines made from survivin peptide may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells.


I. To determine the toxicity profile of the SVN53-67/M57-KLH peptide in Montanide ISA 51 (montanide ISA-51/survivin peptide vaccine) plus with GM-CSF (sargramostim).


I. To measure the immune responses induced by SVN53-67/M57-KLH with Montanide ISA 51 with GM-CSF.


I. To collect preliminary data on therapeutic efficacy of this combination against malignant glioma.


Patients receive montanide ISA-51/survivin peptide vaccine subcutaneously (SC) followed by sargramostim SC on day 0. Treatment repeats every 2 weeks for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at weeks 16, 20, and 24.

  • Karnofsky performance status (KPS) greater than or equal to 70
  • Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-A *02 or HLA-A *03 blood cell haplotype documented by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis or flow cytometry
  • Survivin expression on patient's tumor cells documented by immunohistochemistry
  • Must be free of systemic infection; subjects with active infections (whether or not they require antibiotic therapy) may be eligible after complete resolution of the infection; subjects on antibiotic therapy must be off antibiotics for at least 7 days before beginning treatment
  • White blood count >= 3000/mm^3
  • Platelets >= 100,000/mm^3
  • Hemoglobin >= 10.0 g/dL
  • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)(serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT])/alanine aminotransferase (ALT)(serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]) =< 2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Total bilirubin =< 2.0 mg/dL
  • Serum creatinine =< 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Patients of child-bearing potential must agree to use acceptable contraceptive methods during treatment and for three months after its completion; women must have a negative serum pregnancy test
  • Patients who have had recent cranial surgery are eligible for inclusion, but the vaccine may not be administered prior to post-operative day 14
  • Patient or legal representative must be able to read, understand the investigational nature of this study and sign an Institutional Review Board approved written informed consent form prior to receiving any study related procedure

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Inability to obtain histologic proof of malignancy or material unavailable for survivin testing
  • Systemic corticosteroid therapy > 12 mg of dexamethasone or equivalent per day at study entry; patient should be on stable dose
