  Purpose

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, and total-body irradiation before a donor natural killer cell infusion helps stop the growth of tumor cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's natural killer cells. Aldesleukin may stimulate the natural killer cells to kill ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer cells. Treating the donor natural killer cells with aldesleukin may help the natural killer cells kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving laboratory-treated donor natural killer cells together with aldesleukin works when given after cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, and total-body irradiation in treating patients with recurrent and/or metastatic ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To evaluate the in vivo expansion of an infused allogeneic natural killer (NK) cell product following a preparative regimen comprising cyclophosphamide, fludarabine phosphate, and total-body irradiation in treating patients with recurrent and/or metastatic ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Secondary

  • To characterize the quantitative and qualitative toxicities of this treatment regimen.
  • To estimate disease response (complete or partial response) or clinical benefit (stable disease for > 6 months) as measured by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) criteria.
  • To estimate time to progression and overall survival.
  • To estimate the association between clinical response and donor/recipient KIR ligand matching status.

Tertiary

  • To evaluate immune activation of the in vivo expanded haploidentical allogeneic NK cells and its effect on the immune system.

OUTLINE:

  • Preparative regimen: Patients receive fludarabine phosphate IV on days 6 to 2 preceding natural killer (NK) cell infusion and cyclophosphamide IV on days 5 and 4 preceding NK cell infusion. Patients also undergo total-body irradiation on day 1 preceding NK cell infusion.
  • Allogeneic natural killer (NK) cell administration and aldesleukin: Patients receive aldesleukin-activated haploidentical allogeneic NK cells intravenously (IV) on day 0. Beginning 4-6 hours after allogeneic NK cell infusion, patients receive aldesleukin subcutaneously (SC) 3 times a week for 6 doses.

Patients achieving any initial response (complete or partial response) or a clinical benefit (stable disease for > 6 months) who progress after 6 months may receive 1 re-treatment course as above.

Blood samples are collected at baseline, on days 0, 7, 14, and 28, and then at 2 and 3 months post NK cell infusion for cytokine measurements, immunophenotyping, functional analyses, and testing for persistence of donor cells.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for at least 1 year.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant or lactating - The agents used in this study may be teratogenic to a fetus and there is no information on the excretion of agents into breast milk. All females of childbearing potential must have a blood test or urine study within 14 days prior to registration to rule out pregnancy.
  • Active infection - subjects must be afebrile, off antibiotics, and with no uninvestigated radiologic lesions (infiltrates or lesions with negative cultures or biopsies are allowed).

Human anti-mouse antibody (HAMA) monitoring: All subjects will be questioned about prior exposure to antibody therapy (including OKT3, Rituximab, Trastuzumab, etc). Responses will be recorded and reported to the FDA as part of the annual report. For subjects with no prior antibody therapy exposure, no further action will be taken. For subjects who have received previous antibody therapies 10 ml of serum (red top tube) will be drawn before starting therapy and banked per section 8.1. The presence of HAMA will not exclude a patient from the study.
