  • PROmotion of COvid-19 VA(X)Ccination in the Emergency Department - PROCOVAXED

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The goal of this research is to increase COVID-19 and influenza vaccine acceptance and uptake in vulnerable populations whose primary (and often only) health care access occurs in emergency departments (ED Usual Source of Care Patients). Toward this goal, the investigators will conduct one on one interviews and focus groups with ED Usual Source of Care Patients and community partners and produce trusted messaging informational platforms (PROmotion of COvid-19 VA(X)ccination in the Emergency Department - PROCOVAXED) that will address barriers to COVID-19 and influenza vaccination, especially vaccine hesitancy. The investigators will then conduct a cluster-randomized, controlled trial of PROCOVAXED platforms in six EDs to determine whether their implementation is associated with greater COVID-19 and influenza vaccine acceptance and uptake in ED Usual Source of Care Patients.

  • Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Immunogenicity of a Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA)-Based Anti-Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Vaccine (Triplex®)

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    Participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive either two injections of CMV-MVA Triplex® or placebo administered at study Entry/Day 0 and week 4. Vaccine Group: 60 participants will receive CMV-MVA Triplex® containing 5 x 108 plaque-forming unit (pfu) ±0.5 x 108 pfu of MVA Vaccine Encoding CMV Antigens by intramuscular (IM) deltoid injections. Placebo Group: 30 participants will receive a volume of placebo (7.5% Lactose in phosphate-buffered saline [PBS]) that matches the volume of the active vaccine injection by IM deltoid injections.

  • A Study of Varlilumab and IMA950 Vaccine Plus Poly-ICLC in Patients With WHO Grade II Low-Grade Glioma (LGG)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a pilot, randomized, two arm neoadjuvant vaccine study in human leukocyte antigen-A2 positive (HLA-A2+) adults with World Health Organization (WHO) grade II glioma, for which surgical resection of the tumor is clinically indicated. Co-primary objectives are to determine: 1) the safety of the novel combination of subcutaneously administered IMA950 peptides and poly-ICLC (Hiltonol) and i.v. administered CDX-1127 (Varlilumab) in the neoadjuvant approach; and 2) whether addition of i.v. CDX-1127 (Varlilumab) increases the response rate and magnitude of CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell responses against the IMA950 peptides in post-vaccine peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) samples obtained from participating patients.

  • Combinatorial Therapy to Induce an HIV Remission

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Combination approaches will almost certainly be required to generate durable control of HIV in the absence of antiretroviral therapy (a "remission"). In this study, 20 individuals will receive a combination regimen administered during ART and then undergo an analytic treatment interruption (ATI).

  • H3.3K27M Peptide Vaccine With Nivolumab for Children With Newly Diagnosed DIPG and Other Gliomas

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is 3-arm, multicenter study that will be conducted through the Pacific Pediatric Neuro-oncology Consortium (PNOC). This study will assess the safety and immune activity of a synthetic peptide vaccine specific for the H3.3.K27M epitope given in combination with poly-ICLC and the H3.3.K27M epitope given in combination with poly-ICLC and the PD-1 inhibitor, nivolumab, in HLA-A2 (02:01)+ children with newly diagnosed DIPG or other midline gliomas that are positive for H3.3K27M.

  • High Dose Flu Vaccine in Treating Children Who Have Undergone Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II randomized trial studies how well high dose flu vaccine works in treating children who have undergone done stem cell transplant. Higher dose flu vaccine may build a better immune response and may provide better protection against the flu than the standard vaccine.

  • Neo-adjuvant Evaluation of Glioma Lysate Vaccines in WHO Grade II Glioma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a pilot neoadjuvant vaccine study in adults with WHO grade II glioma, for which surgical resection of the tumor is clinically indicated. Co-primary objectives are to determine: 1) the safety and feasibility of the neoadjuvant approach; and 2) whether the regimen increases the level of type-1 chemokine CXCL10 and vaccine-specific (i.e., reactive to GBM6-AD) CD8+ T-cells in tumor-infiltrating leukocytes (TILs) in the surgically resected glioma.

  • Preventive Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Trial in Kidney Transplant Recipients

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies whether the nonavalent human papillomavirus vaccine given to adults prior to kidney transplantation can help the body build and maintain an effective immune response during the post-transplant period when they receive immunosuppressive drugs to prevent transplant rejection. This study will help inform our scientific understanding about vaccine-induced immune responses among immunosuppressed individuals.

  • The BOOSTED (Booster Options Or Switching Tested for Effectiveness and Downsides Study) Trial (COVID-19)

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    While both heterologous (mixing) and homologous (matching) vaccine regimens are now considered standard of care, post-vaccination complications and long-term effects of the different vaccination regimens have not been thoroughly studied. There is a pressing need to investigate the longitudinal effects of the mixing and matching vaccine-booster approaches. This study proposes to utilize the existing digital infrastructure of the COVID-19 Citizen Science (CCS) study on the Eureka Research Platform to perform a systematic and prospective randomized trial comparing mixing versus matching approaches. Eligible CCS participants will have the opportunity to be randomly assigned to a recommendation of receiving either the Pfizer or Moderna booster vaccine. Long-term effects will be monitored through the participants' completion of their regular weekly CCS follow-up surveys on symptoms and infection. This randomized trial aims to mitigate the effect of confounding variables and provide more conclusive evidence on each regiment to guide booster recommendations.

  • Vaccine Therapy With Bevacizumab Versus Bevacizumab Alone in Treating Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme That Can Be Removed by Surgery

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well giving vaccine therapy with or without bevacizumab works in treating patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme that can be removed by surgery. Vaccines consisting of heat shock protein-peptide complexes made from a person's own tumor tissue may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells that may remain after surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them. It is not yet known whether giving vaccine therapy is more effective with or without bevacizumab in treating glioblastoma multiforme.
