There is one clinical trial.
The purpose of this study is to determine if it is safe to add multiple immunotherapies to standard chemotherapy and radiation for treating pancreatic cancer tumors that cannot be completely removed by surgery. 1. GI-4000 Vaccination: The first involves a "vaccine," which is an injection (shot) that teaches your immune system to attack foreign invaders. The vaccine we will use is called "GI-4000" - a vaccine composed of yeast that is made to carry the same proteins (called "mutated Ras proteins") found in some pancreatic cancer cells. 2. Adoptive T-cell Transfer: The second type of immunotherapy in this study is called "adoptive T-cell transfer." This involves collecting a specific type of white blood cells from you (called "T-cells")and growing T-cells grown in a lab which may help the research participants' immune systems recover more quickly after chemotherapy, and possibly improved response to other immunotherapies. We hope that studying these agents together will teach us how to help the immune system fight pancreatic cancer.
1. Histologically-confirmed pancreatic adenocarcinoma that expresses one of the GI-4000-related k-ras oncoproteins (G12V, G12C, G12D, Q61L, or Q61R) 2. Locally advanced disease, (stages I-III, i.e no evidence of metastasis outside the pancreas and its regional lymph nodes). --- G12V --- --- G12C --- --- G12D --- --- Q61L --- --- Q61R ---
