Title:Interim analysis of a prospective, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, phase IIb trial of the TLPLDC vaccine to prevent recurrence in resected stage III or IV melanoma patients

  • Presenter: George E. Peoples, M.D., FACS

The TLPLDC (tumor lysate, particle-loaded, dendritic cell) vaccine is an autologous, personalized, therapeutic cancer vaccine designed to stimulate the immune system to recognize tumor cells and fight a patient’s specific cancer. TLPLDC is made from a patient’s own tumor and dendritic cells – the most potent antigen-presenting cells in the body. Once TLPLDC is injected, the tumor lysate-loaded dendritic cells present the tumor antigens to the immune system, stimulating the induction of tumor-specific, activated T cells that are able to find and destroy tumor cells that may remain in the body. TLPLDC is currently being studied as a monotherapy and in combination with standard of care checkpoint inhibitor therapy in a Phase 2b clinical trial for the treatment of late-stage melanoma at leading academic cancer centers in the United States.
