Experimental: IT trastuzumab after subQ GM-CSF
Patients with localized recurrent PFEPN will be treated with IT trastuzumab following 5-day course of subQ GM-CSF. Surgical resection should be planned (based on institutional surgical scheduling standards) for ideally 2-7 days after IT trastuzumab dosage.
Drug: Trastuzumab after SubQ GM-CSF
Experimental: IT trastuzumab in combination with subQ GM-CSF
Patients with localized recurrent PFEPN will be treated with IT trastuzumab in combination with GM-CSF to establish a maximum tolerated dosage. GM-CSF will be administered at 250 mcg/m2/dose subQ daily for three (3) days prior to the IT trastuzumab dose.
Drug: Trastuzumab in combination with SubQ GM-CSF
- Stratum 1: Detection of trastuzumab in tumor following IT administration [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]The presence of trastuzumab will be measured as a binary (yes/no) outcome.
- Stratum 2: Determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) for IT trastuzumab in combination with fixed doses of subQ GM-CSF [ Time Frame: 1 month ]The estimated MTD would be the highest dose at which 0/3 or 1/6 subjects experience a Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT).
