Ph I/II Study of Subcutaneously Administered Veltuzumab (hA20) in NHL and CLL

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Immunomedics, Inc. Identifier:
First received: October 17, 2007
Last updated: March 25, 2013
Last verified: March 2013
The purpose of this study is to determine if a subcutaneous (SC) dosing schedule of veltuzumab can be established in NHL or CLL patients and to confirm the safety and efficacy of veltuzumab that was previously established when administered intravenously.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety/tolerability [ Time Frame: over 2 years after treatment ]
    safety will be assessed by monitoring lab results and adverse events, which will be assessed every 3 months for up to 2 years.

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: March 2013
Primary Completion Date: March 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: veltuzumab
veltuzumab is a humanized CD20 antibody administered subcutaneously in this study.
Biological: veltuzumab
veltuzumab (hA20) will be studied at different dose levels, administered subcutaneously once a week for 4 weeks.
Other Names:
  • hA20
  • humanized anti-CD20
  • IMMU-106

Detailed Description:
The first study of veltuzumab given IV weekly in NHL patients (IM-T-hA20-01) has shown excellent tolerability and even efficacy at weekly intravenous doses as low as 80-120 mg/m2 over 4 consecutive weeks. These clinical results confirm experiments laboratory studies. Laboratory studies using Veltuzumab administered subcutaneously showed potent activity based on B-cell depletion. The current study's goal is to determine if a subcutaneous (SC) dosing schedule of veltuzumab can be established in patients with NHL or CLL

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed diagnosis of CD20 positive chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)
  • Either previously untreated or relapsed
  • Measurable disease (at least one lesion > 1.5 cm for NHL, or ALC > 5,000 for CLL) see full protocol for additional criteria

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previously untreated NHL patients with Stage I and II disease (Ann Arbor classification)
  • Previously untreated CLL patients with Stage 0-2 disease (Rai classification) unless specific treatment indications by NCCN guidelines exist (symptomatic, recurrent infections, end-organ function, cytopenias and steady disease progression).
