Patients on this study will receive 4 doses of a vaccine called SurVaxM. While vaccines are usually thought of as ways to prevent diseases, vaccines can also be used to treat cancer. SurVaxM is designed to tell the body's immune system to look for tumor cells that express a protein called survivin and destroy them. If the body's immune system knows to destroy cells that express survivin, it may help to control tumor growth and recurrence.
