The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01101594
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Study was terminated due to lack of efficacy)
First Posted : April 12, 2010

Gilead Sciences

Brief Summary:
This study is a Ph I trial to test the safety of the study drug, hLL1-DOX at different dose levels in patients with recurrent multiple myeloma. HLL1 is also known as milatuzumab and is attached to doxorubicin in this clinical trial.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Drug: hLL1-DOX (the doxorubicin conjugate of milatuzumab) Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
In this clinical research trial, hLL1-DOX will be administered on days 1, 4, 8 and 11. This treatment cycle will be repeated every 3 weeks as long as patients continue to tolerate it, for a maximum of 8 treatment cycles (approximately 6 months).

Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I/II Study of hLL1-DOX (Milatuzumab-Doxorubicin Antibody-Drug Conjugate) in Patients With Multiple Myeloma
Study Start Date : July 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : July 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : July 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: hLL1-DOX
4 Different dose levels of hLL1-DOX will be studied in groups of 3-6 patients. Once an optimal dose has been found, up to additional 30 patients will be studied at that dose level.
Drug: hLL1-DOX (the doxorubicin conjugate of milatuzumab)
hLL1-DOX will be administered intravenously (through a vein) on days 1, 4, 8 & 11 every 21 days for up to 8 treatment cycles. 4 different dose levels of hLL1-DOX will be studied for safety and tolerability.
Other Names:
  • hLL1-DOX
  • Milatuzumab-DOX
  • CD74-DOX

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. All patients administered any dose of study drug will be included in the evaluation of safety [ Time Frame: Before infusion, 5 min after start, every 15 min until completion, then 30, 60, 90 and 120 min later of each dose of study drug ]
    The frequency and severity of adverse events (AEs) will be tabulated by MedDRA Preferred Term and System Organ Class (SOC) for each dose group. AEs will be classified using the MedDRA version 8.0 with severity assessed by NCI CTC v3 toxicity grades

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the therapeutic efficacy of hLL1-DOX in this patient population [ Time Frame: During treatment and the changes at 4, 8 and 12 weeks after treatment and then every 3 months for up to 2 years ]
    All patients who were treated with at least one complete dose of study drug and have available response assessment data will constitute the efficacy population. For efficacy evaluations, treatment responses based on IMWG Response Criteria, response duration and progression-free survival will be tabulated and summarized by descriptive statistics for patients in each dose group.
