Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to test 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab, a new imaging agent, to demonstrate its safety and ability to take pictures of the myeloma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Drug: 89Zr-daratumumab Device: PET/CT scans Other: Blood draws Phase 1 Phase 2

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description: This is a phase I/II study with the goal to assess the feasibility of using the anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody daratumumab, labeled with Zirconium-89 (89Zr ) through deferoxamine (DFO), known as 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab, for PET imaging of multiple myeloma.
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: First-in- Human Imaging of Multiple Myeloma Using 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab, a CD38-targeting Monoclonal Antibody
Actual Study Start Date : September 5, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 89Zr-daratumumab

Three patients will be administered 2 mCi of 89Zr-daratumumab in a total of 50 mg of daratumumab antibody. Administered activity (1 to 5 mCi) of radioactivity and total amount of administered antibody (3 to 50 mg) will be adjusted in subsequent patients in order to maximize image quality.

Patients in phase I will have up to 4 PET/CT scans, multiple blood draws, whole-body counts, and safety monitoring to determine pharmacokinetics, radiation dosimetry, and safety of 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab for PET/CT imaging. Phase II (total of 21-24 patients). After pharmacokinetics and radiation dosimetry are determined in phase I, additional patients will be enrolled in phase II.

Drug: 89Zr-daratumumab
2 mCi of 89Zr-daratumumab will be administered on day 0.

Device: PET/CT scans
PET/CT images will be obtained on post-administration days 1, 2-4, 5-6, and/or 7-8 following administration of 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab to determine the optimal time point for imaging.

Other: Blood draws
Blood and serum samples will be weighed and counted in a scintillation well counter calibrated for 89Zr. Immediately before or after each PET/CT imaging session,

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of tissue distribution of 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Standardized uptake value (SUV) in various organs will be estimated from VOI analysis of clinical images and converted to activity-time curves. The areas under the activity-time curves will be derived by integration, converted to residence times, and used as input to the OLINDA/EXM dosimetry program to obtain absorbed dose estimates for normal tissues.
