Description: For this single group, phase 1b/2 trial, researchers are evaluating whether DPX-E7 vaccination is safe and will improve outcomes among patients with HPV-positive head and neck, cervical, or anal cancer.

Enrolled patients will receive DPX-E7 and low-dose cyclophosphamide; patients must be positive for HLA-A*02.

The primary outcome is the number of patients with treatment-related adverse events; secondary outcomes include overall response rate, overall survival, and progression-free survival.

This study is sponsored by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer.

DPX-E7 is an investigational vaccine not yet approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of any disease.
