This study is a clinical trial phase I/II. Its goal is to determine the safety, tolerability, immunogenicity and efficacy of a therapeutic vaccine with the tumor antigen NY-ESO-1 combined with the adjuvant MPLA from B. pertussis in cancer patients.
Detailed Description
The safety and immunogenicity of the vaccine with the antigen NY-ESO-1 in combination with the MPLA will be evaluated in a phase 1 clinical trial conducted in patients with malignancies that express the antigen (lung, ovarian and melanoma). This study will involve 15 patients, who will receive 250 mcg of NY-ESO-1 and 100 mcg of MPLA.
