Trial Description

Summary

This is a two-part study to test the safety, tolerability, and immune response for V934/V935 vaccine using a new prime-boost regimen in participants with selected solid tumors.

Further Study Information

Two vaccines will be administered: V934-electroporation (EP) either low dose (LD) or high dose (HD), and V935 either LD or HD. In Part A, participants will be assigned to V935 vaccine alone or in combination with V934-EP. Part B will be an optional part of the study, offering V934-EP vaccine booster to participants who were enrolled in Part A.

  • Participant has adequate organ function.
  • Female participant of childbearing potential has a negative serum pregnancy test within 3 days of study enrollment.

Exclusion Criteria Part A
