Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate changes in tumor blood flow and disease response to the investigation agent, 177Lu-J591.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Kidney Cancer Head and Neck Cancer Breast Cancer Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Colorectal Cancer Pancreatic Cancer Ovarian Cancer Esophageal Cancer Gliomas Drug: 177Lu-J591 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

177Lu-J591 is made up of two compounds called J591 and 177Lutetium (177Lu) that are joined together by a connecting molecule called "DOTA". J591 is a monoclonal antibody, or a type of protein. 177Lu is a radioactive molecule that is being tested for the possible treatment of cancer when joined to monoclonal antibodies. J591 attaches to a protein called prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) found in the body. PSMA is mostly found in normal and cancerous prostate cells. In addition, however, PSMA has also been found on the vasculature (blood vessels) that supply multiple types of cancer including colorectal, kidney, bladder, head and neck, breast, non-small cell lung, pancreas, ovary, esophagus and gliomas.

We hope that 177Lu-J591 will seek out blood vessels that supply these tumors and deliver a dose of radiation (from the 177Lu molecule) to the areas of cancer, without affecting target blood vessel that are not associated with the cancer.

Zirconium-89 (89Zr) is a radioactive tracer that allows special scans to be performed prior to administration of the study drug to determine where the antibody goes in the body and to screen the tumor's blood vessels to see if they attract J591. Again, DOTA is used to join the radioactive material to J591. 89Zr-J591 is not being given to treat cancer.

Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: 177Lu Radiolabeled Monoclonal Antibody HuJ591-GS (177Lu-J591) in Patients With Nonprostate Metastatic Solid Tumors: A Pilot Study
Actual Study Start Date : July 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: J591 Drug: 177Lu-J591
70 mCi/m2 of 177Lu-J591 will be administered on Day 1.
Other Name: monoclonal antibody J591

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in tumor perfusion as based on Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE)-MRI study [ Time Frame: Performed after administration of 177LuJ591 between Day 6-9 and on Day 29. ]
  2. Change in tumor perfusion based on changes in cellularity as assessed using Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) [ Time Frame: Performed after administration of 177LuJ591 between Day 6-9 and on Day 29. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in response rate using Response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST) Criteria [ Time Frame: Objective response will be evaluated from changes in baseline to Day 99 and repeated every 3 months until radiographic progression of disease. ]
    Through RECIST criteria, objective response will be evaluated by taking into account the measurement of the longest diameter only for all target lesions on CT scans as well as normalization of serum tumor markers (if applicable).

  2. Change in the number of subjects who achieve Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: Day 58 after administration with 177Lu-J591 and repeated every 3 months until radiographic progression of disease ]
    Progression free survival is the length of time during and after the treatment of a disease, such as cancer, that a patient lives with the disease but it does not get worse. This will be calculated from the time of treatment (day of 177Lu-J591 infusion) until radiographic progression or death.

  • Metastatic or recurrent solid tumor malignancy defined by abnormal CT, MRI, PET scan, CXR and/or bone scan
  • Progressive disease manifest by: Development of new lesions or an increase in size of preexisting lesions on imaging study or by physical examination.
  • Subjects must have recovered from the acute toxicities of any prior therapy, and not received chemotherapy, radiation therapy or other investigational anticancer therapeutic drug for at least 4 weeks prior to J591 administration in this trial
  • All subjects must have archived or current tissue (from a primary or metastatic focus) available for PSMA determination.
  • Subjects on bisphosphonate therapy or denosumab must be on a stable dose and must have started therapy > 4 weeks prior to protocol therapy.
  • Subjects will be informed as to the potential risk of procreation while participating on this trial and will be advised to use effective contraception during the entire study period. Females of child-bearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • ECOG Performance Status > 2
  • Deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolus within 1 month of enrollment.
  • Other serious illness(es) involving the cardiac, respiratory, CNS, renal, hepatic or hematological organ systems which might preclude completion of this study or interfere with determination of causality of any adverse effects experienced in this study.
  • Prior investigational therapy (medications or devices) within 4 weeks of treatment.
  • Known history of HIV.
  • Known leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome
  • Prior allergic reaction to Gadolinium contrast.
