Colorectal cancer that has returned or progressed after treatment and spread to other organs is known as metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Most people with mCRC survive only about two years. A trial led by Jason M. Redman, M.D., Assistant Research Physician in the Center for Immuno-Oncology, is studying combination immunotherapy, including a tumor-targeted vaccine, for the disease. The trial includes two mandatory biopsies.

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
