  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, the combination of 3F8 and GM-CSF has on the patient and the cancer.

Antibodies are made by the body to attack tumors and to fight infections. 3F8 is the name of one kind of antibody. It is made by mice, and it can attack neuroblastoma in people. 3F8 has been used safely in many patients, and it has killed cancer cells in some patients. One way it can kill cancer cells is by causing the patient's own white blood cells to attack the cancer. Granulocytes are one kind of white blood cell. GM-CSF increases the number of granulocytes in people, and it makes the granulocytes better able to kill the cancer cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the impact of high-dose 3F8/GM-CSF [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    on relapse-free survival in patients in first complete or very good partial remission, but at high risk of relapse.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Apply real-time quantitative RT-PCR [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    to test the hypothesis that the minimal residual disease content of bone marrow after the first treatments with 3F8/GMCSF has significant prognostic impact on relapse-free survival.

  • Monitor safety of the high-dose antibody treatment [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    to assure no side-effects or noxious sequelae develop or emerge that were not seen in the prior phase I study.


Estimated Enrollment: 58

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3F8 and 13-cis-retinoic acid
This phase II, open-label, single arm trial assesses the anti-NB activity of high-dose 3F8 (80 mg/m2/day), which is used in cycles 1-2, with return to standard 3F8 dosage (20 mg/m2/day) in subsequent cycles. Clinical results will be compared to those in the predecessor trials which used only the standard 3F8 dosage. Starting with A(8), patients no longer receive high dose 3F8 but receive only standard dose 3F8 (20mg/m2/day) for all cycles.
Drug: 3F8 and 13-cis-retinoic acid
3F8 is dosed at 80 mg/m2/day (cycles 1-2) or 20 mg/m2/day (cycles 3 and beyond) and infused iv over 30-90 minutes. 13-cis-retinoic acid is dosed at 160 mg/m2/day, divided into two doses, x14 days. It is not taken on same days as 3F8. *High-dose 3F8 will be administered only for patients enrolled on protocol from A(0) to A(7). Starting with A(8), patients receive standard dose (20mg/m2/day) during cycles 1 and 2.
