Phase I/II Study of hLL1-DOX in Relapsed NHL and CLL

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01585688

Brief Summary:
The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of hLL1-DOX, and to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) regimen (in terms of a dose and its associated dosing schedule). The secondary objectives are to obtain information on efficacy, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and immunogenicity, and to determine the optimal dose for subsequent studies.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Drug: hLL1-DOX (IMMU-115) Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients receive hLL1-DOX at one of 4 dose levels administered on Days 1, 4, 8 and 11 of 21-day treatment cycles which are continued in the absence of progression or unacceptable toxicity up to a total of 8 cycles. After treatment, follow-up will be done at 4, 8 and 12 weeks post-treatment and will continue to be done every 3 months for up to 2 years.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: hLL1-DOX Drug: hLL1-DOX (IMMU-115)
hLL1-DOX is administered intravenously at one of 4 dose levels on days 1, 4, 8 and 11 of 21-day treatment cycles, with up to 8 cycles administered.
Other Name: IMMU-115

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety [ Time Frame: during treatment and the change at 4, 8 & 12 weeks after treatment ]
    Safety will be measured by physical examinations and hematology and chemistry blood tests. Cardiac safety will be done using MUGA scans or echocardiograms. These assessments will be done routinely during treatment and again 4, 8 and 12 weeks after treatment. Long term safety will be assessed every 3 months after that for up to 2 years.

  2. Efficacy [ Time Frame: During treatment and the changes at 4, 8 and 12 weeks after treatment ]
    Efficacy will be assessed using CT scans for NHL patients and CT scans and hematology labs for CLL patients. At the beginning of a complete response a repeat bone marrow biopsy may be required. These assessments will be done 8 weeks after the start of treatment and again 10-12 weeks later at the end of treatment. The tests will be repeated at 4, 8 and 12 weeks after treatment and then every 3 months for up to 2 years.
