Phase I Breast Cancer Vaccine Trial at Cleveland Clinic

The Phase I breast cancer vaccine trial at Cleveland Clinic is open to women who have had stage II to III triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) who have completed treatment within the past three years but are at high risk of recurrence. There is a second arm of the trial for women who have genetic breast cancer risk markers such as BRCA1 who have never had cancer but have chosen to get a risk-reducing mastectomy at Cleveland Clinic.  In all cases, treatment will involve a course of 3 vaccinations given every 2 weeks plus two follow-up visits. Participants must be willing to travel to Cleveland, Ohio for all visits.
