Abstract In light of lack of efficacy associated with current cancer vaccines, we aimed to develop a novel vaccine platform called DepoVax as a therapeutic vaccine for breast/ovarian cancer. This study was designed to examine the efficacy of this novel platform over conventional emulsion vaccine using human class I MHC transgenic mice. We have developed a water-free depot vaccine formulation (DPX-0907) with high immune activating potential. Naturally processed peptides bound to HLA-A2 molecules isolated from independent breast and ovarian tumor cell lines, but not normal cells, were isolated and used as antigens in DPX-0907 along with a proprietary adjuvant and a T helper peptide epitope. Efficacy of vaccine was tested in immunized HLA-A*0201/H2Dd transgenic mice by measuring the frequency of IFN-gamma secreting cells in the draining lymph nodes, and regulatory T-cell frequencies in the spleen. Compared with a water-in-oil emulsion vaccine, DPX-0907 enhanced IFN-gamma+CD8+ T cells in vaccine site-draining lymph nodes, as seen by immunofluorescence staining and increased the frequency of IFN-gamma+ lymph node cells as seen by enzyme-linked immunosorbent spot assay. Notably, while conventional vaccine formulations elicited elevated levels of splenic Foxp3+CD4+ and IL10-secreting T cells, this was not the case for DPX-0907-based vaccines, with treated animals exhibiting normal levels of regulatory T cells. These data support the unique capabilities of a vaccine formulation containing novel tumor peptides and DPX-0907 to elicit type-1 dominated, specific immunity that may represent a potent clinical therapeutic modality for patients with breast or ovarian carcinoma.
