Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:56:35 | BioPortfolio


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

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody therapy in treating patients who have prostate cancer that has not responded to hormone therapy.



- Determine the antitumor effects of monoclonal antibody huJ591 in patients with progressive androgen-independent prostate cancer.

- Determine the biodistribution and dosimetry of this antibody in these patients.

- Determine the effect on biodistribution of the delivery sequence of unlabeled vs indium In 111-labeled antibody in these patients.

- Determine the HAHA response in patients treated with this regimen.

- Correlate the dose of monoclonal antibody huJ591 with antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients are assigned to one of two treatment groups.

- Group I: Patients receive monoclonal antibody huJ591 IV followed by indium In 111 monoclonal antibody huJ591 on day 1.

- Group II: Patients receive monoclonal antibody huJ591 concurrently with indium In 111 monoclonal antibody huJ591 as in group I.

Treatment in both groups repeats every 3 weeks for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed for 4 weeks and then monthly for 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14 patients (7 per treatment group) will be accrued for this study.
