Dendritic Cells Plus Autologous Tumor RNA in Uveal Melanoma


Brief description of study

Patients suffering from uveal melanoma (typed positive for monosomy 3 and without evidence for metastases) will be vaccinated over a period of 2 years with Dendritic Cell loaded with autologous Tumor RNA.

200 patients will be included. The Trial is an open multicenter Phase III Trial.

Detailed Study Description

Trial arm A (DCaT-RNA) = Experimental intervention: Patients in arm A receive 8 vaccinations over a period of 2 years consisting of autologous, mature, monocyte-derived Dendritic Cells loaded with autologous tumor RNA (20 mio DC per vaccination); cells are given via intravenous infusions; vaccinations are followed by a 1 year observation (staging every 3 months)
