Primary Completion Date: May 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MDX-060 plus standard of care
MDX-060 in combination with gemcitabine
Drug: MDX-060
anti-CD30 monoclonal antibody, i.v. weekly x 3 10 mg/kg
Other Name: anti-CD30
Active Comparator: Standard of care
Drug: MDX-060
anti-CD30 monoclonal antibody, i.v. weekly x 3 10 mg/kg
Other Name: anti-CD30

Detailed Description:

Secondary objectives include:

  • to characterize progression-free survival
  • to characterize time to progression
  • to determine response duration
  • to characterize the effect of study drug on health-related quality of life
  • to explore the correlation of positron emission tomography (PET) scan results with objective responses observed with conventional imaging in this patient population
  • to characterize the immunogenicity response of MDX-060
  • to characterize the safety of MDX-060, and
  • to characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of MDX-060

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease [HD] (excluding HIV-associated HD)
  • Patients must have read, understood, and provided written informed consent and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) authorization after the nature of the study has been fully explained
  • Patients must have failed or relapsed following second line (i.e., salvage) chemotherapy or relapsed or failed following autologous stem cell transplant
  • ECOG Performance Status of 0-2
  • Patients must have bi-measurable disease
  • At least 4 weeks since the last chemotherapy or radiation therapy with clinical evidence of recovery from any toxicity associated with such treatment
  • Life expectancy 12 weeks or greater
  • Screening laboratory values must be met
  • Patients on corticosteroids must be tapered off the medication 2 weeks prior to study drug administration and remain off corticosteroids until study completion.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous treatment with any anti-CD30 antibody
  • History of allogeneic transplant
  • Any tumor lesion 10cm or greater in diameter
  • Any other malignancy, excluding basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or cervical carcinoma in situ. Any cancer from which the patient has been disease free for at least 5 years is permissible.
  • Any significant active or chronic infection
  • Apparent active or latent tuberculosis (TB) infection
  • Patients who are pregnant or nursing
  • Any underlying medical condition which, in the investigator's opinion, will make the administration of the study drug hazardous or obscure the interpretation of adverse events
  • Concomitant chemotherapy, steroids, investigational agents, other anti-HD biologics, or radiation therapy
