RATIONALE: The LMB-9 immunotoxin may be able to locate tumor cells and kill them without harming normal cells. This may be an effective treatment for advanced solid tumors.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of LMB-9 immunotoxin in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors that have not responded to standard therapy.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the toxic effects and the pharmacokinetics of LMB-9 immunotoxin in patients with advanced solid tumors that express Lewis Y antigen. II. Evaluate the anti-tumor activity and the immunogenicity of this treatment regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients receive LMB-9 immunotoxin IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 3, and 5. Patients with negative neutralizing antibody to LMB-9 immunotoxin with stable or responding disease receive additional courses every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of LMB-9 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, an additional cohort of 6 patients may be treated at the MTD. Patients are followed at 1 month and then every 2 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 20-30 patients will be accrued within 12-24 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

To monitor the quality of bladder cancer care, the Swedish National Register of Urinary Bladder Cancer (SNRUBC) was initiated in 1997. During 2015, in order to study trends in incidence, effects of tr...
To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the Xpert Bladder Cancer (BC) Monitor, compared to cystoscopy and cytology in the oncological follow-up of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC).
Molecular markers of clinical outcome may aid in designing targeted treatments for bladder cancer. However, only a few bladder cancer biomarkers have been examined as therapeutic targets.
Cadherin-17 (CDH17) is highly expressed in gastric cancer and is thus considered to be a good target for antibody therapy. CDH17 is classified as a nonclassical cadherin, in that it is composed of sev...
Bladder cancer is a common disease with a stable incidence for the past few decades despite advancements in molecular and genetic determinants of cancer development and progression. Cystoscopy remains...
Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.
A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.
Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.
An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.
Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
