Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 3F8/GM-CSF Immunotherapy Plus 13-Cis-Retinoic Acid
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 (20 mg/m2/day) for all cycles.
Biological: 3F8/GM-CSF Immunotherapy Plus 13-Cis-Retinoic Acid

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 (20 mg/m2/day) for all cycles. The patients are in > or = to 2nd CR/VGPR and at high risk for additional relapse. Real-time quantitative RT-PCR63-65 will be used to assess MRD in BM. 13-cis-retinoic acid is started after cycle 2.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the impact of high-dose 3F8/GM-CSF on relapse-free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    in patients in second or greater complete or very good partial remission, but at high risk of additional relapse.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Apply real-time quantitative RT-PCR to test the hypothesis that the minimal residual disease content of bone marrow [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    after the first treatments with 3F8/GMCSF has significant prognostic impact on relapse-free survival.

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