A Single-Patient Study Using AGS 006 as an Immunotherapeutic in a Subject With Newly Diagnosed Resectable Pancreatic Cancer

Single-patient, open-label clinical study:

- Events during Pre-Treatment Period:

1. Resection of pancreatic cancer,

2. RNA acquisition from tumor specimen,

3. RNA amplification,

4. Infectious disease testing,

5. Autoimmune disease testing,

6. Two blood draws for immune response monitoring,

7. Production leukapheresis, and

8. Dendritic cell electroporation with RNA and immunotherapeutic production;

- Events during Induction Period:

1. Administer investigative treatment every 2 weeks for a total of five doses,
followed by dosing every 4 weeks for a total of four doses,

2. Two Induction Period blood draws (Week 6 and Week 12) for immune response
monitoring, and

3. One leukapheresis (Week 14) for immune response monitoring;

- Events during Booster Period:

1. Dose every 3 months until progression or 2 years after first AGS treatment,

2. Potentially, one leukapheresis for immune response monitoring 12 months from the
first dose, and

3. One blood draw 2 weeks following dosing at Week 36 (1st booster dose)
(approximately Week 38); and,

- Events during study Close-Out:

1. Close-Out upon progression or 28 days following immune response monitoring 2 years
after first dose

Inclusion Criteria:

- A male subject 18 years of age or older with newly diagnosed resectable pancreatic
cancer who, in the opinion of the investigator, is suitable for participation in the
study will be eligible for inclusion if all of the following criteria apply:

1. Able to abstain from taking prohibited prescription or prohibited
non-prescription drugs.

2. Ability to communicate effectively with study personnel; considered reliable,
willing, and cooperative in terms of compliance with the Protocol requirements.

3. Voluntary informed consent given to participate in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Any serious medical condition such as cardiopulmonary disease, circulatory
compromise, hepatic or renal dysfunction, or other illness considered by the
investigator to constitute an unwarranted high risk for investigational treatment.

2. Active autoimmune disease including, but not limited to:

3. Active, acute, or chronic clinically significant infections including human
immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and viral hepatitis.

4. Known hypersensitivity to dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).

5. Body weight less than 30 kg.
