RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the side effects and best dose of a monoclonal antibody in treating patients with stage IV melanoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Melanoma (Skin)||Biological: B7-DC cross-linking antibody rHIgM12B7 Other: flow cytometry Other: immunologic technique Other: laboratory biomarker analysis||Phase 1|
- Determine the safety/toxicity of a single dose of B7-dendritic cell cross-linking antibody containing plasma in treating patients with stage IV melanoma.
- Describe the immunological changes (Th1/Th2 balance, frequency of tumor specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes, and plasma cytokine profiles) in the treated patients.
- Determine the treatment impact on tumor growth (e.g., objective response, time to progression).
OUTLINE: Patients receive B7-dendritic cell cross-linking antibody IV once on day 1.
Patients undergo peripheral blood collection at baseline and periodically after infusion for analysis of dendritic cell activation, cytotoxic T-lymphocyte activity, immune cell impact, and serum cytokine changes using immunophenotyping and flow cytometry.
After completion of study treatment patients are followed every 2 months for 5 years.
