Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) in MULTIPLE MYELOMA Using the Antibody B-B4 Radiolabelled With IODE 131 (BB4)

This study has been completed.

Centre René Gauducheau Identifier:
First received: February 11, 2011

Last verified: February 2011

The first step of this protocol called step pre-treatment study the biodistribution and pharmacokinetics of a tracer dose of radiolabeled antibody. The second step called step therapy study the toxicity and antitumor effects of antibody B-B4 coupled with increasing doses of iodine 131. At least 17 patients will be included for an estimated duration of 2 years to determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose limiting toxicity. The immediate side effects, medium and long terms will be analyzed. After determining the toxic dose limit, patients will be treated at the maximum tolerated dose, for a total of 15 patients at this level, which will measure the objective tumor response to treatment. These patients will be followed for 1 year after injection therapy.
