The purpose of this study is to test what effects (good and bad) a new cancer vaccine will have on participants and their cancer, when administered before and after their autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT).
The name of the vaccine is called Dendritic Cell Survivin Vaccine (DC:AdmS). The vaccine is made using the participant's own blood cells. The vaccine will contain a virus called an adenovirus, similar the virus that causes the common cold. The virus has been changed so it cannot infect humans and cause infections. The vaccine will be prepared at Moffitt Cancer Center in the Cell Therapy Laboratory Facility.

Experimental: Survivin Vaccine and Autologous HCT
Dendritic Cell Survivin Vaccine (DC:AdmS) and Autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (HCT). Participants will receive 1 pre-transplant survivin vaccine, 7-30 days prior to stem cell apheresis collection. After the first survivin vaccination, participants will be mobilized with Granulocyte-colony Stimulating Factor (G-CSF). A second survivin vaccine will be administered on day +21 (between day+20 and +34) after HCT. All participants will be co-immunized with Prevnar 13 at each time they receive the survivin vaccine.
Biological: Survivin Vaccine
Pre-transplant vaccination : The target dose of Survivin+ Dendritic cells (survivin+, CD11c+, Human Leukocyte Antigen - antigen D Related (HLA-DR)+ by flow-cytometry) is 15 x 10^6 cells. A minimum of 1 x 10^6 cells and a maximum of 20 x 10^6 cells will be administered.
Post-transplant vaccination: The target dose of Survivin+ Dendritic cells (survivin+, CD11c+, HLA-DR+ by flow-cytometry) is 15 x 10^6 cells. A minimum of 1 x 10^6 cells and a maximum of 20 x 10^6 cells will be administered.
Procedure: Autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation
The participant's own cells are collected from their blood, frozen, and then given back to them after they receive chemotherapy.
Other Name: HCT
Biological: Prevnar 13
13-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV13, Prevnar13). Co-Immunization: All participants will be co-immunized with Prevnar at each time they receive the survivin vaccine. This vaccine will be administered intramuscular (IM) 0.5cc.
Other Name: PCV13
Drug: Granulocyte-colony Stimulating Factor
After the first survivin vaccination, participants will be mobilized with G-CSF.
Other Name: G-CSF
- Rate of Complete Response (CR) [ Time Frame: 90 days post treatment ]Complete Response: A treatment outcome where there are ≤5% plasma cells in the bone marrow and no evidence of myeloma proteins in the serum or urine as measured by standard laboratory techniques.
- Number of Participants With Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months post treatment ]The safety of DC:AdmS when administered to patients with myeloma before and at day +21 after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant. The approach for assessing potential toxicity of survivin vaccination will focus predominantly on assessing hematopoietic reconstitution, including T cell repopulation and gastrointestinal toxicity. Investigators will also monitor for autoimmune disorders involving other tissues where survivin expression has been demonstrated: these include keratinocytes and melanocytes, myocardium, liver, breast, and brain. The most sensitive test to assess the potential toxicity of survivin vaccination on hematopoietic function is the time of neutrophil repopulation after autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). Beginning on day of ASCT, participants will be monitored daily for engraftment, defined by an absolute neutrophil count of 500 cells per microliter that is sustained for at least 3 days.
- Number of Participants With Improved Immunologic Response [ Time Frame: 180 days (6 months) post vaccination ]
The ability of DC:AdmS to induce T cell immune responses against survivin when administered to patients with myeloma before and at day +21 after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant.
Immunologic responses: be measured at baseline prior to the first vaccination (i.e., baseline), after stem cell mobilization and collection (i.e., pre-transplant), and post-transplant at day +60, +90, and +180. Each time 100 cc of peripheral blood will be collected. Immune response evaluations will consist of the following: Determination of the survivin specific T cell frequency using limiting dilution analysis and freely available online software; Analysis of Interferon-γ producing T cells in ELISPOT assays in response to DC loaded survivin peptide pool; Measurement of anti-pneumococcal immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody titers and T cell responses against cross-reacting material (CRM) adjuvant; Evaluation of immunomodulatory phenotypes by T cell subsets before and after vaccination.
