Safety Study of 188Re-PTI-6D2 in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma

2014-08-27 03:41:38 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this first-in-man study is to evaluate the safety of 188Re-PTI-6D2 in patients with metastatic melanoma. All patients will receive a tracer dose of 188Re-PTI-6D2 in order to provide information on how the monoclonal antibody is distributed throughout the body and to assess tumor targeting. No therapeutic dose of radiation will be given in the first study.


This study will evaluate the safety and feasibility of the administration of 188Re-PTI-6D2 in patients with metastatic melanoma. Patients with confirmed Stage IIIc (unresectable) or Stage IV melanoma who meet all eligibility criteria will undergo a thorough physical examination and baseline tumor imaging (whole body 18FDG PET/CT and MRI brain) to document all sites of tumor.

Treatment will be administered on an inpatient basis. An initial cohort of 3 patients will receive a tracer dose of 188Re-PTI-6D2 without any preceding unlabeled antibody. The tracer dose will consist of 10 mCi of rhenium-labeled antibody; the amount of antibody (in mg) will depend on specific activity and is estimated to range from 2 to 10 mg. Additional cohorts of three patients each will receive 10 mg, 20 mg, and 50 mg of unlabeled PTI-6D2 immediately preceding administration of the tracer dose. Patients will undergo serial gamma scans and SPECT/CT imaging at specified time points. Blood samples will be obtained prior to dosing and at specified intervals for PK measurements of the mAb as well as for measurement of serum radioactivity. Urine will also be collected for all patients to measure excreted radioactivity. Patients will be closely monitored for safety throughout the duration of the study.

Patients will remain at the study center for 48 hours after infusion to allow adequate time for post-treatment safety observation, monoclonal antibody clearance and rhenium decay. Prior to the escalation of the dose of unlabeled PTI-6D2, safety data from the inpatient period and 2-week follow-up visit for the three patients at the current dose level will be reviewed. If there is no evidence of a safety risk, the dose of unlabeled PTI-6D2 will be escalated for the next cohort of patients. Dose escalation of unlabeled antibody will occur according to a specific scheme.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)

Experimentally induced tumor that produces MELANIN in animals to provide a model for studying human MELANOMA.

A cellular subtype of malignant melanoma. It is a pigmented lesion composed of melanocytes occurring on sun-exposed skin, usually the face and neck. The melanocytes are commonly multinucleated with a "starburst" appearance. It is considered by many to be the in situ phase of lentigo maligna melanoma.

Found in large amounts in the plasma and urine of patients with malignant melanoma. It is therefore used in the diagnosis of melanoma and for the detection of postoperative metastases. Cysteinyldopa is believed to be formed by the rapid enzymatic hydrolysis of 5-S-glutathionedopa found in melanin-producing cells.

A melanosome-specific protein that plays a role in the expression, stability, trafficking, and processing of GP100 MELANOMA ANTIGEN, which is critical to the formation of Stage II MELANOSOMES. The protein is used as an antigen marker for MELANOMA cells.
