Study Title

A Phase 2b Randomized Trial of Autologous Dendritic Cell Immunotherapy (CMN-001) Plus Standard Treatment of Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma


CMN-001 is an autologous, tumor antigen-loaded dendritic cell immunotherapy. The active components of CMN-001 are autologous, matured dendritic cells, which have been co-electroporated with both in vitro transcribed (IVT) RNA from an autologous tumor specimen and CD40L RNA. CMN-001 is indicated for treatment of intermediate/poor risk patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in combination with nivolumab plus ipilimumab as first line therapy and in combination with lenvatinib plus everolimus as 2nd line therapy post 1st line failure.


1. To evaluate CMN-001 in a randomized trial between SOC (first line ipilimumab+nivolumab followed by second line lenvatinib+everolimus) with or without CMN-00. 2. To compare safety assessments between study arms. 3. To compare progression free survival (PFS) based on Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST 1.1 and iRECIST, optimized for immunotherapy trials) between study arms. 4. To compare tumor responses based on RECIST 1.1 and iRECIST between study arms
