Daratumumab in Treating Patients with Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer or Metastatic Kidney Cancer

Trial Status: Active

This pilot early phase I trial studies the side effects of daratumumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer or kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Immunotherapy with daratumumab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Inclusion Criteria

  • RENAL COHORT: Histological documentation of renal cell carcinoma with a clear cell component in the metastatic renal cell carcinoma cohort

  • BLADDER: Serum albumin >= 2.8g/dl (clinical laboratory values at screening)
  • BLADDER: Serum creatinine clearance (CrCl) >= 20 mL/min (clinical laboratory values at screening); dialysis patients will be excluded; for creatinine clearance estimation, the Cockcroft and Gault equation should be used

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Safety and tolerability of therapy with daratumumab in a cohort of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma and a cohort of patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the proportion of patients who achieve pathological complete response (CR) with daratumumab in patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer.

II. To assess the objective response rate (ORR) to daratumumab in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

III. To assess the progression free survival for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma receiving daratumumab.

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. To study immunological changes in tumor tissues and peripheral blood in response to daratumumab in a cohort of patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer and in a cohort of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

OUTLINE: Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 cohorts.

COHORT 1 (RENAL): Patients receive daratumumab intravenously (IV) over 8 hours for the first dose and then over 4 hours for all doses thereafter during weeks 1-8. Treatment repeats every week for up to 8 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then undergo biopsy, nephrectomy, or metastasectomy during weeks 10-12. Patients may then restart treatment with daratumumab beginning 2 weeks after biopsy or 4-6 weeks after nephrectomy or metastasectomy. Cycles repeat every 2 weeks for 4 months and then monthly for 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

COHORT 2 (BLADDER): Patients receive daratumumab IV over 8 hours for the first dose and then over 4 hours for all doses thereafter beginning at week 1. Cycles repeat every week for up to 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 2 weeks for the renal cohort and at 6 weeks post-surgery in the bladder cohort.
