Experimental: nDC vaccination arm
Patients in the nDC vaccination arm will receive a maximum of 3 cycles each consisting of 3 nDC injections intranodally (3-8x10^6 nDC).
Biological: nDC vaccination
Placebo Comparator: placebo arm
Patients will receive a maximum of 3 cycles each consisting of 3 placebo injections intranodally.
Biological: placebo injection
- Recurrence-free survival rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The primary objective of this study is to determine whether adjuvant nDC vaccination, after complete radical lymph node dissection or sentinel node procedure in stage IIIB and IIIC melanoma patients, improves 2-year RFS rate as compared to treatment with matching placebo. Defined as the percentage of patients who are alive and without recurrence of melanoma 2 years after randomization.
- Recurrence-free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years and 5 years ]Median RFS duration will be assessed by physical examination and CT of the chest and abdomen every 3-12 months, or on clinical indication, during 5 years.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: 2-years and median ]
- Tumor specific T-cell response [ Time Frame: week 1, week 9, week 10, week 31, week 39, week 57, week 65, week 78, month 24, month 60 ]
- Quality of Life Questionnaires [ Time Frame: baseline, week 14, week 26, month 12, month 24, month 36, month 60 ]
- Costs (direct and indirect) of treatment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- QALY [ Time Frame: 2 years ]A cost-effectiveness acceptability curve will be derived that is able to evaluate efficiency by using different tresholds (willingness to pay) for a QALY.
- Adverse Events related to treatment [ Time Frame: 1,5 year ]
