EMOTIV - Melanoma Vaccine Trial
Enhancing melanoma outcomes using a timed immunotherapy vaccine
The AMRF is a major sponsor of the EMOTIV trial for patients with advanced melanoma, which is continuing at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
Eligibility: The study is for South Australian patients with advanced (Stage IV or III) melanoma, which cannot be removed by surgery.
Aims: To test a new approach to administering a melanoma vaccine, which had excellent results in a previous study, when it was given at regular intervals (18% complete response rate and 13% 5-year survival times). The vaccine doses will be either 'timed' or not-timed' with the patients own immune system fluctuations. The potential is to improve the effectiveness of the vaccine. The vaccine has virtually no side effects and early results of this study are remarkable.
