The purpose of this study is to determine whether Interleukin-2 at the dose and schedule used in this study will help to increase tumor shrinkage
||Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase II Trial of Moderate Dose Bolus Interleukin-2 in Metastatic Melanoma
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Progression free survival of patients with metastatic melanoma who have had disease progression on at least one prior systemic therapy or has not been treated [ Time Frame: 9 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Response rate [ Time Frame: 9 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Median duration of response [ Time Frame: 9 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Median survival of patients treated with this moderate dose bolus Interleukin-2 schedule. [ Time Frame: 9 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other Name: IL2
In this phase II trial, the previously described IL-2 schedule (daily IL-2 for 5 days (per week) every 3 weeks) will be tested in a larger cohort of patients with melanoma to attempt to determine the response rate, median duration of response, and median survival. The dose intensity of this schedule would allow a patient treated on this regimen to achieve the target threshold (> 1440 million IU/m2/year).
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Patients must have a histologic diagnosis of metastatic melanoma. Patients may have received prior systemic therapy or may be previously untreated.
- Patients must have bi-dimensional measurable disease on physical exam or radiologic studies.
- ECOG performance status of 0 or 1 and estimated survival of at least 3 months.
- White blood count of > 3500/mm3, platelet count > 100,000/mm3, hemoglobin > 9.0 gm/dl; bilirubin, ALT, AST < 3 x upper limit of normal; serum creatinine < 2.0 mg/dl.
- Patients must undergo a low-level cardiac stress test as a screen for possible atherosclerotic heart disease. Patients with a positive stress test would be excluded from this trial.
- Patients with elevated temperatures > 100.5 F must have sources of occult infection excluded.
- Patients must be felt to have recovered from effects of prior therapy, such as > 2 weeks after prior chemotherapy.
- Patient consent must be obtained prior to entrance onto study.
- Women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test and must take adequate precautions to prevent pregnancy during treatment
- Medical illness requiring corticosteroids or other immunosuppressive agents (such as cyclosporin or methotrexate.
- Autoimmune disease such as inflammatory arthritis which could be exacerbated by immune-based therapy.
- Prior history of psychiatric disorder which could be exacerbated by interleukin-2.
- Lactation or pregnancy.
- Evidence of significant cardiovascular disease including history of recent (< 6 months prior) myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, primary cardiac arrhythmias (not due to electrolyte disorder or drug toxicity, for example) beyond occasional PVC's, angina, positive low-level stress test, or cerebrovascular accident.
- Current brain metastasis.
