Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody therapy in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
Drug: monoclonal antibody anti-anb3 integrin
Procedure: anti-cytokine therapy
Procedure: antiangiogenesis therapy
Procedure: antibody therapy
Procedure: biological response modifier therapy
Procedure: growth factor antagonist therapy
Procedure: monoclonal antibody therapy
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I Study of Monoclonal Antibody Anti-Anb3 Integrin in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors|
|Study Start Date:||February 2002|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose of monoclonal antibody anti-anb3 integrin in patients with advanced solid tumors.
- Determine the toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the potential anti-tumor activity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive monoclonal antibody anti-anb3 integrin IV over 30 minutes weekly. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of monoclonal antibody anti-anb3 integrin until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, additional patients are treated as above at that dose level.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 27-33 patients will be accrued for this study within 9-11 months.
