Study of DPX-Survivac Vaccine Therapy and Epacadostat in Patients With Recurrent Ovarian Cancer

The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of DPX-Survivac, an investigational vaccine, in combination with low dose cyclophosphamide and investigational drug epacadostat to stimulate the immune system to attack cancer cell in people with advanced stage ovarian cancer. DPX-Survivac plus low dose cyclophosphamide has previously been tested in women with ovarian cancer. This study hopes to determine if the combination with epacadostat improves immune response and anti-tumor effect. Participants will be screened for tumor expression of survivin (the target of DPX-Survivac) and enzyme IDO1 (the target of epacadostat).

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
