Study Title: A Phase I/II Trial of Vemurafenib and Metformin to Unresectable Stage IIIC and Stage IV BRAF V600E+ Melanoma Patients

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville

Purpose: To evaluate the safety of Vemurafenib in combination with Metformin in melanoma patients

Primary Outcome Measures: Observation of CTCAE grade 4 or higher adverse events in six patients [time frame: Duration of phase I portion, approximately 6 months]

Principal Investigator: Jason A. Chesney, MD, PhD, James Graham Brown Cancer Center-University of Louisville; 502-562-3429, jason.chesney@louisville.edu

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01638676


 

 Phase II

Study Type: Phase II/interventional/parallel assignment

Study Title: A Phase II, Open-Label, Multicenter, Randomized Study of CDX-1401, a Dendritic Cell Targeting NY-ESO-1 Vaccine, in Patients With Malignant Melanoma Pre-treated With Recombinant CDX-301, a Recombinant Human Flt3 Ligand

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: National Cancer Institute (NCI)

Purpose: To study how well DEC-205/NY-ESO-1 fusion protein CDX-1401 (CDX-1401) and neoantigen-based melanoma-poly-ICLC vaccine (poly-ICLC) vaccine therapy work when given with or without recombinant flt3 ligand (CDX-301) in treating patients with stage IIB-IV melanoma

Primary Outcome Measures: Immune T-cell response to NY-ESO-1 [time frame: Up to 12 weeks after final vaccination]

Principal Investigator: Nina Bhardwaj, MD, PhD, Cancer Immunotherapy Trials Network; contact desired location (multiple trial sites listed on cancer.gov)
