This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition multiple myeloma
Treatments amils, allogeneic myeloma vaccine
Phase phase 2
Sponsor Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center
Start date December 2009
End date December 2014
Trial size 32 participants
Trial identifier NCT01045460, J0997, NA_00029491


Patient Population: Patients with active myeloma (Stage II/III) that have completed induction therapy and are eligible for an autologous stem cell transplant.

Number of Patients: Will treat a total of 32 evaluable patients in a 1:1 randomization of aMILs vs aMILs plus vaccine. An evaluable patient is defined as one which has received the activated MILs and is at least 6 months post-transplant.

Study Objectives:

Disease response as determined by the Blade' criteria will be the primary endpoint of the trial at one year.

Additional study endpoints include progression free survival, parameters of T cell reconstitution, anti-tumor immune responses as well as the effect on osteoclastogenesis and clonogenic myeloma precursor cells.

Inclusion Criteria: - Durie-Salmon Stage II or III multiple myeloma - Newly diagnosed either prior to receiving treatment or having completed induction therapy - Relapsed myeloma not previously transplanted within the past 5 years - Measurable serum and/or urine M-protein from prior to induction therapy documented and available. A positive serum free lite assay is acceptable - Age greater than 18 years old - ECOG performance status of 0 - 2 - Meet all institutional requirements for autologous stem cell transplantation - The patient must be able to comprehend and have signed the informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Diagnosis of any of the following plasma cell disorders: POEMS syndrome (plasma cell dyscrasia with polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein [M-protein] and skin changes) Non-secretory myeloma (no measurable protein on Serum Free Lite Assay) - Plasma cell leukemia - Amyloidosis - Use of corticosteroids (glucocorticoids) within 21 days of pre-transplant vaccine or bone marrow collection - Use of any myeloma-specific therapy other than lenalidomide within 21 days of pre-transplant vaccine - In a complete remission at the time of bone marrow collection - Infection requiring treatment with antibiotics, antifungal, or antiviral agents within seven days of vaccination or bone marrow collection - Participation in any clinical trial, within four weeks prior to vaccination or bone marrow collection on this trial, which involved an investigational drug or device - History of malignancy other than multiple myeloma within five years of vaccination or bone marrow collection, except adequately treated basal or squamous cell skin cancer - Active autoimmune disease (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosis) requiring systemic treatment. Hypothyroidism without evidence of Grave's Disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis is permitted - Evidence of spinal cord compression at time of transplant
