Brief Summary:

Monoclonal antibodies can transport and deliver radioactive elements capable of releasing sufficient amounts of energy to destroy tumor cells. In this clinical trial, we will study alpha particle radio immunotherapy using lead-212 (²¹²Pb), an isotope with a short path length targeted to malignant cells by the trastuzumab antibody, as a potential treatment for metastatic diseases.

This Phase I trial is designed to determine the toxicity profile of ²¹²Pb-TCMC-Trastuzumab, its dose-limiting toxicities, and its anti-tumor effects in patients with HER-2 positive intraperitoneal cancers.

Drug Information available for: Trastuzumab

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Phase I: Dose escalation
In preparation for the study, patients screened and eligible will have a peritoneal catheter placed and the evening prior to the injection of the labeled antibody will receive furosemide. Herceptin will be administered IV followed by a single IP infusion of ²¹²Pb-TCMC-Trastuzumab. Serial sampling of blood, urine, and dosimetry will be performed following treatment to determine the toxicity, pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity, and antitumor effects.
Other: ²¹²Pb-TCMC-Trastuzumab
The starting dose level will be 200 μCi/m² of ²¹²Pb-TCMC-Trastuzumab. Three to six patients will be treated at each dose level, and dose escalation will proceed if no more than 1 out of 6 patients in a cohort experiences dose limiting toxicity. Six patients will be treated at the maximum tolerated dose.

Biological: trastuzumab
4 mg/kg.
Other Name: Herceptin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability: To measure the number of participants who experience adverse events after intraperitoneal (IP) administration of ²¹²Pb-TCMC-Trastuzumab. [ Time Frame: Assessed periodically during study treatment follow-up, up to five years. ]

    Adverse events considered dose limiting toxicity:

    • Grade 3 elevations of ALP, bilirubin, ALT, or AST lasting ≥7 days
    • Grade 3 elevations of serum creatinine within 6 weeks of treatment
    • Grade 2 elevations of serum creatinine lasting ≥7 days that occur after 6 weeks
    • Grade 3 proteinuria
    • Any other Grade 3 or 4 non-hematologic toxicity
    • Grade 4 neutropenia lasting ≥7 days or febrile neutropenia of any duration
    • Grade 3 thrombocytopenia that fails to recover to ≤ Grade 2 at 6 weeks
    • Grade 4 thrombocytopenia lasting ≥7 days or thrombocytopenia accompanied by bleeding

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunogenicity: To characterize the human immune response against ²¹²Pb-TCMC-Trastuzumab given via IP infusion. [ Time Frame: Assessed at six weeks visit ]
  2. Anti-tumor effects: To monitor for anti-tumor effects as assessed by physical examination, radiographic imaging, and tumor marker studies. [ Time Frame: Assessed after six and twelve weeks, and then at twelve-week intervals until progression. ]
  3. Pharmacokinetics: To determine the plasma pharmacokinetics and assess the extent of exit of radioactivity from the peritoneal cavity by γ-camera imaging. [ Time Frame: Up to 3 days post-injection ]

  7. Disease must be predominantly intra-abdominal and should include documented peritoneal studding or positive peritoneal washings.
  8. Able and willing to sign an informed consent form.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. ECOG performance status greater than 3.
  2. Any serious active disease or co-morbid condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, may interfere with the safety or the compliance with the study.
  3. Poor bone marrow reserve as defined by absolute neutrophil count less than 1.5 x 10³/cmm or platelets less than 100 x 10³/cmm within two weeks prior to initiation of treatment.
  4. Liver only metastases.
  5. Poor organ function as defined by one of the following:

    • Total bilirubin greater than 1.5 upper limits of normal (ULN)
    • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) greater than 2.5 ULN or greater than 5 ULN in case of documented liver metastasis

  8. Wash out period of less than three weeks from previous anti-tumor therapy or any investigational treatment (and less than six weeks in case of prior nitroso-urea and or mitomycin C treatment) of scheduled date of administration.
  9. Wash out period of less than one week from last palliative dose of radiotherapy.
  10. Any other severe underlying medical conditions that could impair the ability to participate in the study or the interpretation of its results related to the investigational product such as:

    • Patients with abnormal cardiac function defined by a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) less than 50% by echocardiogram (ECHO) or multi gated acquisition (MUGA) scan
    • Patients with previous history of acute cardiac failure
  11. Clinical symptoms of bowel obstruction, evidence of rectosigmoid bowel involvement on exam, or transmural bowel wall involvement on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
