Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Patients With Advanced or Recurrent Lymphoma
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 study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody therapy in treating patients who have advanced or recurrent lymphoma.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase I, Multiple Dose Escalation Trial of Intravenous Humanized Anti-CD3 Antibody (HuM291) in Patients With CD3+ T-cell Lymphomas|
|Study Start Date:||April 2001|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2003|
- Determine the safety and tolerability of monoclonal antibody HuM291 in patients with advanced or recurrent CD3+ T-cell lymphomas.
- Evaluate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of this treatment regimen in this patient population.
- Determine the response in these patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive monoclonal antibody HuM291 IV over 3 hours on days 1-4 in the absence of unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving a partial response, complete response with recurrence, or stable disease may receive further therapy.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of monoclonal antibody HuM291 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed weekly for 1 month and then monthly for 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-15 patients will be accrued for this study.
