  Purpose

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody therapy in treating patients with refractory anaplastic large cell lymphoma or Hodgkin's lymphoma.


Condition Intervention Phase
Lymphoma Biological: monoclonal antibody HeFi-1 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: HeFi-1 Antibody Therapy in Ki-1 and Hodgkin's Lymphomas, a Phase I Study

Study Start Date: February 1999
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of monoclonal antibody HeFi-1 in patients with CD30+ anaplastic large cell lymphoma or Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in this patient population.
  • Evaluate the efficacy, in terms of correlating immunologic parameters and immunogenicity, of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation study.

Patients receive monoclonal antibody HeFi-1 IV over 30 minutes 3 times a week for 2 weeks. Treatment may continue for 2 additional weeks in the absence of anti-HeFi-1 response. Responding patients may continue treatment at monthly intervals for one year.

Cohorts of 3-4 patients receive escalating doses of monoclonal antibody HeFi-1 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 4 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.

Patients are followed monthly.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 9 patients will be accrued for this study.
