Phase I/II Study of Human Anti-Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Monoclonal Antibody MSL-109 in Newborns With Symptomatic Congenital CMV Infection Without Central Nervous System Disease

2014-08-27 03:58:13 | BioPortfolio

Summary

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the safety, tolerance, and potential efficacy of 3 doses of human anti-cytomegalovirus (CMV) monoclonal antibody SDZ MSL-109 (MOAB MSL-109) in the treatment of newborns with congenital CMV infection and no central nervous system disease.

II. Determine the relationship between plasma concentrations of MOAB MSL-109 and therapeutic outcome.

III. Determine whether MOAB MSL-109 influences the antibody response and clearance of virus from the urine.

Description

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Patients are treated with human anti-cytomegalovirus monoclonal antibody MSL-109, administered intravenously every other week for a total of 3 doses.

Groups of 6 patients are treated at each of 3 MSL-109 doses; there is no intrapatient escalation.

No concurrent therapy with antibiotics for systemic infection, parenteral antifungal agents, biological response modifiers, or other antiviral agents is allowed.

Patients are followed every 2 weeks for 6 weeks, every 4 weeks for 12 weeks, then annually for 5 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An ACYCLOVIR analog that is a potent inhibitor of the Herpesvirus family including cytomegalovirus. Ganciclovir is used to treat complications from AIDS-associated cytomegalovirus infections.

Infection with CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, characterized by enlarged cells bearing intranuclear inclusions. Infection may be in almost any organ, but the salivary glands are the most common site in children, as are the lungs in adults.

Infection of the retina by cytomegalovirus characterized by retinal necrosis, hemorrhage, vessel sheathing, and retinal edema. Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a major opportunistic infection in AIDS patients and can cause blindness.

Opportunistic infections found in patients who test positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The most common include PNEUMOCYSTIS PNEUMONIA, Kaposi's sarcoma, cryptosporidiosis, herpes simplex, toxoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and infections with Mycobacterium avium complex, Microsporidium, and Cytomegalovirus.

A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily BETAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting the salivary glands, liver, spleen, lungs, eyes, and other organs, in which they produce characteristically enlarged cells with intranuclear inclusions. Infection with Cytomegalovirus is also seen as an opportunistic infection in AIDS.
