Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the activity of high-dose 3F8/GM-CSF [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    against persistent neuroblastoma in bone marrow of patients who have no other evidence of disease by standard studies.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Apply real-time quantitative RT-PCR [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    to test the hypothesis that the minimal residual disease content of bone marrow after the first treatments with 3F8/GMCSF has significant prognostic impact on progression-free survival.

  • Monitor safety of the high-dose antibody treatment [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    to assure no side-effects or noxious sequelae develop or emerge that were not seen in the prior phase I study.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3F8/GM-CSF Immunotherapy Plus 13-Cis-Retinoic
This phase II study of the anti-GD2 murine IgG3 monoclonal antibody 3F8 combined with granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) will assess response in of primary refractory neuroblastoma in bone marrow (i.e., incomplete response to standard treatment).
Biological: 3F8/GM-CSF Immunotherapy Plus 13-Cis-Retinoic

This phase II, open-label, single arm trial assesses the anti-NB activity of high-dose 3F8 (80 mg/m2/day), which is used in cycles 1-2, with return to standard 3F8 dosage (20 mg/m2/day) in subsequent cycles.Clinical results will be compared to those in the predecessor trials which used only the standard 3F8 dosage. Starting with A(6), patients no longer receive high-dose 3F8 but receive only standard dose 3F8 (20mg/m2/day) for all cycles The patients have primary refractory BM disease. Protocol treatment is through 24 months.

Real-time quantitative RT-PCR63-65 will be used to assess MRD in BM. 13-cis-retinoic acid is started no later than after cycle 4 (i.e., after response is scored), but sooner if CR is achieved after cycles 1, 2, or 3, or if early HAMA develops.


  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Months and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of NB as defined by a) histopathology (confirmed by the MSKCC Department of Pathology), or b) BM metastases or MIBG-avid lesion(s) plus high urine catecholamine levels.
  • High-risk NB as defined by risk-related treatment guidelines1 and the International NB Staging System,89 i.e., stage 4 with (any age) or without (> or = to 18 months of age) MYCN amplification or MYCN-amplified stage 4S.
  • Patients have primary refractory disease limited to BM, i.e., high-risk NB (defined above) resistant to standard therapy, as evidenced by incomplete response in BM, but no measurable MIBG-avid soft tissue tumor assessable for response and no progressive disease.
  • Signed informed consent indicating awareness of the investigational nature of this program.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Creatinine > 3.0 mg/dL
  • ALT, AST and Alkaline Phosphatase > 5.0 times the upper limit of normal
  • Bilirubin > 3.0 mg/dL
  • Patients with grade 3 or higher toxicities (using the CTCAE v 4.0) related to cardiac, neurological, pulmonary or gastrointestinal function as determined by physical exam. Patients must have normal blood pressure for age.
  • Progressive disease
  • History of allergy to mouse proteins.
  • Active life-threatening infection.
  • Human anti-mouse antibody (HAMA) titer >1000 Elisa units/ml.
  • Inability to comply with protocol requirements.
