Brief Title  ICMJE Personalized Neo-Antigen Peptide Vaccine for the Treatment of Stage IIIC-IV Melanoma or Hormone Receptor Positive Her2 Negative Metastatic Refractory Breast Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE PNV21-001: A Phase I Study of a Personalized Multi-Peptide Neo-Antigen Vaccine in Breast Cancer and PD1/PD-L1 Inhibitor-Refractory Melanoma
Brief Summary This phase I trial studies the safety of personalized neo-antigen peptide vaccine in treating patients with stage IIIC-IV melanoma or hormone receptor positive Her2 negative breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Personalized neo-antigen peptide vaccine is a product combines multiple patient specific neo-antigens. Given personalized neo-antigen peptide vaccine together with Th1 polarizing adjuvant poly ICLC may induce a polyclonal, poly-epitope, cytolytic T cell immunity against the patient's tumor.
Detailed Description

OUTLINE:

Patients receive poly ICLC intramuscularly (IM) once weekly in weeks when no vaccine is given. Beginning 2 weeks after starting poly ICLC, patients receive personalized neo-antigen peptide vaccine IM once every 4 weeks and nivolumab every 2 or 4 weeks. Treatment continuous for 25 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then receive nivolumab every 2 or 4 weeks for up to 12 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 24, 36, and 48 weeks.
