Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Colony-stimulating factors such as G-CSF may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood, and may help a person's immune system kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody therapy plus G-CSF in treating patients with metastatic colorectal cancer that has not responded to treatment with fluorouracil.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colorectal Cancer Biological: edrecolomab Biological: sargramostim Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the response rate, duration of response, and survival after treatment with monoclonal antibody 17-1A and granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor in patients with colorectal cancer metastatic to nonhepatic sites and refractory to fluorouracil. II. Describe the toxicities associated with this regimen. III. Assess the quality of life in these patients.
