|Monoclonal Antibody Ch14.18, Sargramostim, Aldesleukin, and Isotretinoin After Autologous Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Neuroblastoma
This phase III trial is studying the side effects of giving monoclonal antibody Ch14.18 together with sargramostim, aldesleukin, and isotretinoin after autologous stem cell transplant in treating patients with neuroblastoma. Monoclonal antibodies, such as Ch14.18, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Colony-stimulating factors, such as sargramostim, may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood. Aldesleukin may stimulate the white blood cells to kill tumor cells. Isotretinoin may help neuroblastoma cells become more like normal cells, and to grow and spread more slowly. Giving monoclonal antibody Ch14.18 together with sargramostim, aldesleukin, and isotretinoin after autologous stem cell transplant may be an effective treatment for neuroblastoma.
Further Study Information
I. To comprehensively define the safety profile of monoclonal antibody Ch14.18 when administered with sargramostim, aldesleukin, and isotretinoin after autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with high-risk neuroblastoma.
I. To further describe and refine the event-free survival and overall survival estimates in patients treated with this regimen.
II. To further describe the baseline characteristics of patients treated with these regimen.
III. To further describe the safety and toxicity of this regimen, in terms of number of courses delivered per patient, number of dose reductions or stoppage, and number of toxic deaths, in these patients.
IV. To further describe the immune reconstitution following ASCT based on laboratory data obtained just before, during, and after treatment with this regimen.
V. To obtain correlative laboratory data to evaluate and describe mechanisms related to response, toxicity of immune activation, and allergic phenomena.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive sargramostim subcutaneously or IV over 2 hours on days 0-13 of courses 1, 3, and 5; monoclonal antibody Ch14.18 IV over 10 hours on days 3-6 of courses 1, 3, and 5 and on days 7-10 of courses 2 and 4; and oral isotretinoin twice daily on days 11-24 of course 1, on days 14-27 of courses 2, 4, and 6, and on days 10-23 of courses 3 and 5. Patients also receive aldesleukin IV continuously on days 0-3 and on days 7-10 of courses 2 and 4. Treatment repeats every 24-32 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients may undergo blood and bone marrow sample collection periodically for correlative laboratory studies.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 4 years, and then annually thereafter.
