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: This phase I trial is studying the side effects of monoclonal antibody therapy in treating patients with progressive small cell lung cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer Biological: monoclonal antibody Hu3S193 Phase 1

Detailed Description:



  • Determine the targeting, tissue distribution, and pharmacokinetics of monoclonal antibody Hu3S193 in patients with progressive small cell lung cancer.


  • Determine the immunogenicity of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine tumor response in patients treated with this drug.
  • Determine the safety of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, pilot study.

Patients receive monoclonal antibody Hu3S193 (MOAB Hu3S193) IV over 30 minutes on day 1 of weeks 1-4. Patients also receive indium In III MOAB Hu3S193 IV over 30 minutes on day 1 of weeks 1 and 4 and then undergo gamma camera imaging. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed at 1 and 4 weeks, every 3 months for 1 year, and then every 6-12 months thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 10 patients will be accrued for this study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multiple-Dose Targeting Study of hu3S193 in Patients With Small Cell Lung Cancer
Study Start Date : February 2004
