RATIONALE: Biological therapy uses different ways to stimulate the immune system and stop cancer cells from growing. Cytotoxic T cells combined with interleukin-2 may be an effective treatment for recurrent brain tumors.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of cytotoxic T cells and interleukin-2 in treating adults with recurrent brain tumors.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors||Biological: aldesleukin Biological: muromonab-CD3 Biological: therapeutic tumor infiltrating lymphocytes Procedure: conventional surgery||Phase 1|
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the toxicity of allogeneic cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) when repeatedly instilled directly into the brain to treat recurrent primary brain tumors. II. Evaluate the response produced by allogeneic CTL and interleukin-2. III. Correlate CTL surface phenotype and degree of patient/donor HLA mismatch to response and toxicity.
OUTLINE: Surgery plus Biological Response Modifier Therapy. Tumor resection; plus intracavitary cytotoxic T lymphocytes, CTL; intracavitary Interleukin-2 (Chiron), IL-2, NSC-373364. CTL are generated in vitro by mixing irradiated patient lymphocytes (cultured with IL-2 and Monoclonal Antibody OKT 3, MOAB OKT 3, NSC-618843) with allogeneic lymphocytes and culturing the mixture with IL-2.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 10 patients will be treated. If severe toxicity occurs in the first 5 patients, the study will close.
