Alemtuzumab in Treating Patients With Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as alemtuzumab, can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well alemtuzumab works in treating patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Campath-1H in Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma (Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia)|
- Objective response [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Time to treatment failure [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Toxicity [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||January 2004|
- Determine the objective response in patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia treated with alemtuzumab.
- Determine the time to treatment failure in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive alemtuzumab IV over 2 hours on days 1, 3, and 5 of weeks 1-6 (course 1) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with a complete response undergo observation. Patients with stable disease or a minor or partial response receive an additional course of alemtuzumab, administered as in course 1, on weeks 7-12.
Patients are followed every 6 months for 2 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 13-27 patients will be accrued for this study.
