Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Gliomas
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to determine the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody in treating patients with recurrent gliomas.
Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors
Radiation: iodine I 131 monoclonal antibody 81C6
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||PROTOCOL FOR A PHASE I STUDY OF INTRACYSTIC ANTI-TENASCIN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY 131I 81C6 IN THE TREATMENT OF PATIENTS WITH RECURRENT CYSTIC GLIOMAS|
|Study Start Date:||November 1991|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2001|
|Primary Completion Date:||April 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the toxic effects of intracystic administration of iodine-131-labeled anti-tenascin monoclonal antibody 81C6. II. Identify any objective therapeutic responses to this treatment in patients with recurrent cystic anaplastic gliomas.
OUTLINE: Radioimmunotherapy. Iodine-131-Labeled Anti-Tenascin Monoclonal Antibody 81C6, 131I-81C6.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Three to six patients will be entered at each dose studied.
