ACTION Trial- Adoptive Cellular Therapy following Dose-Intensified Temozolomide in Newly-diagnosed Pediatric High-grade Gliomas (Phase I)
The purpose of this research study is to learn whether anti-tumor T-cells and anti-tumor DC vaccines can be given safely. Most importantly, this study is also to determine whether the T-cells and DC vaccines can stimulate a person's immune system to fight off the tumor cells in the brain.
To determine the safety of adoptive cellular therapy in pediatric patients with HGG receiving dose intensified TMZ and DC+xALT therapy with and without HSCs. 1) Examine feasibility of completing treatment (administration of at least 3 DC vaccines) in enrolled subjects. 2) Comparison of baseline to post-immunotherapy functional anti-tumor immune responses. 3) Analysis of progression-free survival and overall survival after treatment with DC + xALT therapy with and without HSCs.
