Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
A Phase I/II Trial of HER-2/Neu Pulsed DC1 Vaccine Combined With Trastuzumab for Patients With DCIS
The purpose of the study is to treat patients with Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) with a combined treatment of DC1 vaccine with Trastuzumab. In this study the investigators will assess the safety and immunogenicity of the combination therapy. The target population is women over 18 years of age and have a diagnosis of DCIS that express HER-2 3 positive. Participants will receive 6 vaccines along with 2 doses of trastuzumab.
This study began at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania and will continue at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute.
Women >= 18 years.
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) that express HER-2 3+ on 10% of the DCIS that have not had definitive surgery are diagnosed by core biopsy or NL surgical biopsy with positive margins.
Patients that are ER+ will take anti-estrogen therapy for treatment of their DCIS during vaccinations.
