Condition esophagus cancer
Treatment adenovirus-transfected autologous dc vaccine plus cik cells
Phase phase 1/phase 2
Sponsor Affiliated Hospital to Academy of Military Medical Sciences
Start date August 2014
End date August 2016
Trial size 30 participants
Trial identifier NCT02693236, 307-CTC-DC/CIK-EC


The aim of this Phase I/II study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of dendritic cells(DC) combined with cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells in patients with advanced esophagus cancer. Experimental recombinant adenovirus coded mRNA including MUC1 and Survivin that transfected DC, which are used for DC-based immunotherapy. Based on the results of our previously performed preclinical study with DC vaccine combined with CIK cells, the researcher plan to perform the clinical trial.
