Brief Summary:

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/II trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody and cyclophosphamide in treating patients with metastatic cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific Biological: antibody therapy Biological: biological therapy Biological: muromonab-CD3 Drug: cyclophosphamide Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the clinical feasibility and toxicity of monoclonal antibody OKT3 given with low-dose cyclophosphamide in patients with advanced malignancies. II. Perform serial immune monitoring on patients treated with this regimen. III. Identify any clinical responses produced by this regimen.

OUTLINE: Biological Response Modifier Therapy with Suppressor Cell Inhibition. Anti-CD3 Murine Monoclonal Antibody OKT3, MOAB OKT3; with Cyclophosphamide, CTX, NSC-26271.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: At least 9 evaluable patients per diagnostic category will be required initially; if any response is seen during the dose-finding portion of the study, a total of 24 patients with that diagnosis will be entered.
