Monoclonal Antibody ABX-EGF in Treating Patients With Renal (Kidney), Prostate, Pancreatic, Non-Small Cell Lung, Colon or Rectal, Esophageal, or Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as ABX-EGF can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody ABX-EGF in treating patients who have either renal (kidney), prostate, pancreatic, non-small cell lung, colon, rectal, esophageal, or gastroesophageal junction cancer.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||An Open Label, Multiple Dose, Dose-Rising Clinical Trial of the Safety of ABX-EGF in Patients With Renal, Prostate, Pancreatic, Non-Small-Cell Lung, Colorectal, or Esophageal Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||April 2000|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the safety of monoclonal antibody ABX-EGF in patients with renal, prostate, pancreatic, non-small cell lung, colorectal, esophageal, or gastroesophageal junction cancer.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics and the dose-response relationship of this drug in this patient population.
- Evaluate the clinical effect of this drug in this patient population.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation, multicenter study.
Patients receive monoclonal antibody ABX-EGF IV over 1 hour once weekly on weeks 0-3* (enrollment for the weekly dosing schedule completed as of 4/21/03 [with the exception of patients undergoing full pharmacokinetic analyses, described below]) OR once every 2 weeks on weeks 0, 2, 4, and 6* OR once every 3 weeks on weeks 0, 3, 6, and 9*. Patients undergoing full pharmacokinetic analyses receive a loading dose on week 0 and the subsequent 3 doses on weeks 3-5.
NOTE: *All patients receive a total of 4 doses.
Cohorts of 2-8 patients receive escalating doses of monoclonal antibody ABX-EGF until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 or 3 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed every 2 weeks for 5 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 76 patients will be accrued for this study within approximately 14 months.
