What is the update on the french dendritic cell vaccine
Sep 30, 2007
Hello Dr.Pierone, i was wondering what happened to the french dendritic cell vaccine since the first results were announced back in november 2004...has there been a follow up on the patients? how about an extended clinical trial? can you please inform me on this? Thank you
Response from Dr. Pierone
It seems highly likely that the French group who published the original report in November 2004 has follow-up studies underway, although I have not been able to locate any information with a quick web search.
Another research group from Barcelona is doing dendritic cell vaccine work and here is a link to a description of this study from clinicaltrials.gov.
In the U.S. there is a dendritic cell therapeutic vaccine trial currently enrolling at the University of Pittsburgh. Here is a link to this information.
The ACTG is also performing a therapeutic vaccine study on Dermavir and here is a link to some information on this trial.
Thanks for posting and stay tuned.
