Vaccine Therapy and GM-CSF in Treating Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Myelodysplastic Syndromes, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, or Mesothelioma
Vaccines made from peptides may help the body build an effective immune response to kill cancer cells. Biological therapies, such as GM-CSF, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Giving vaccine therapy together with GM-CSF may kill more cancer cells.
This phase I trial is studying the side effects of vaccine therapy and GM-CSF in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, non-small cell lung cancer, or mesothelioma.
Phase, Condition and Intervention:
Phase I; Leukemia, Lung Cancer, Malignant Mesothelioma, Myelodysplastic Syndromes Peritoneal Cavity Cancer; Drug: WT-1 analog peptide vaccine, Drug: incomplete Freund's adjuvant, Drug: sargramostim, Procedure: flow cytometry, Procedure: immunoenzyme technique, Procedure: polymerase chain reaction
Study Type and Design:
Official Title: Pilot Trial of a WT-1 Analog Peptide Vaccine in Patients With Thoracic and Myeloid Neoplasms
