Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All endpoints will be analyzed descriptively. AEs and SAEs will be summarized by dose cohort, body system, severity, and relationship to MEDI-538 through 30 days after discontinuation of MEDI-538. [ Time Frame: 30 days after discontinuation of MEDI-538 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The secondary endpoints of this study include measurement of the pharmacokinetics,immunogenicity, and antitumor activity of MEDI-538 in this patient population. [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: September 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
MEDI-538
Drug: MEDI-538
1 of 3 target doses of MEDI-538 (5,μg/m2/24h) as a continuous IV infusion through a central line catheter. The initial treatment period will be 4 weeks in duration (Study Days 0-27), unless the patient discontinues treatment.
Experimental: 2
MEDI-538
Drug: MEDI-538
1 of 3 target doses of MEDI-538 (10,μg/m2/24h) as a continuous IV infusion through a central line catheter. The initial treatment period will be 4 weeks in duration (Study Days 0-27), unless the patient discontinues treatment.
Experimental: 3
MEDI-538
Drug: MEDI-538
1 of 3 target doses of MEDI-538 (15,μg/m2/24h) as a continuous IV infusion through a central line catheter. The initial treatment period will be 4 weeks in duration (Study Days 0-27), unless the patient discontinues treatment.

Detailed Description:
  • Evaluate the safety and tolerability of MEDI-538 at doses of 5, 10, or 15 μg/m2/24h by continuous IV infusion for 4 or 8 weeks in adult patients with B-cell NHL not eligible for
  • Determine the MTD of MEDI-538 administered by continuous IV infusion for 4 or 8 weeks in adult patients with B-cell NHL not eligible for curative therapy.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult men or women at least 18 years of age;

  • Histologically confirmed B-cell NHL of one of the following classifications:

    • Follicular lymphoma
    • Marginal zone lymphoma;
    • Lymphoplasmocytic lymphoma; or
    • Mantle cell lymphoma.
  • Not eligible for curative therapy according to the NCCN guidelines for NHL (NCCN 2006);
  • Measurable disease (at least one lesion ≥ 20 mm in one dimension) documented by computed tomography (CT) scan;

Cessation of birth control after this point should be discussed with a responsible physician. Heterosexual sexually active males, unless surgically sterile, must likewise use an effective method of birth control (condom) and must agree to continue using such precautions through 3 months after the last dose of MEDI-538;
