Title Long Term Follow-Up Study for Subjects Previously Treated with Algenpantucel-L (HyperAcute-Pancreas) Immunotherapy

Objective The purpose of this clinical study is to determine if there are any long term safety risks for those subjects who have received the algenpantucel-L immunotherapy. Only subjects who have previously received the algenpantucel-L in clinical trials will be invited to participate in this long term follow up study.

Treatment During years 1-5 you will be asked to come to the clinic for a visit at least once a year for the first five years. You will be asked questions about medical history, physical exam will be completed, a small amount of blood will be collected, and asked if your contact information has changed. During years 6-15, you will be called on the phone or sent a questionnaire in the mail at least once/year.

Description If any of the tests that are performed in this study suggest that you may have a medical condition and/or side effect that is likely to be related to the algenpantucel-L, the study doctor will contact you. You will be asked to provide another small sample of blood (approximately 1 teaspoon) to be tested for presence of the retrovirus used in making the algenpantucel-L immunotherapy. You will also receive a referral in case you would like to seek medical care for the condition and/or side effect.
