Authors' objectives: We conducted a systematic review with the objective of assessing the safety and the immunogenicity of active immunotherapy for breast cancer, recovering an emerging technology briefing, 4 randomised clinical trials (RCT), and 3 case-series
Authors' recommendations: The outcomes of the RCT showed no significant differences between the intervention and control groups in terms of overall survival and progression-free survival. The median survival times reported by Miles et al. (the largest simple size trial) were 23.1 months in the treatment group and 22.3 months in the control group (p= 0,916). The patients from case-series did not achieve complete or partial response by RECIST criteria.
