DCprime, participant of the EU sponsored Horizon2020 AML-VACCiN project, has announced that the first patient has been dosed with DCP-001 in a phase 2 study, called ADVANCE-II. Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in complete remission after induction therapy but with persistence of measurable residual disease (MRD) will be included in this multi-centre study. Effects on MRD and cellular and humoral immune responses will be monitored to evaluate the efficacy of this cancer vaccine.
Prof Dr Arjan van de Loosdrecht, Amsterdam UMC, VU University Medical Center, The Netherlands commented: “We are very glad that the first patient was treated with the DCP-001 vaccine in the ADVANCE-II study. This is an important study to show the potential efficacy of this cancer vaccine in patients who have measurable residual disease and are at great risk of disease relapse.”
