A-dmDT390-bisFv(UCHT1) Immunotoxin Therapy for Patients With Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL)

Official Title

A Phase II Study of A-dmDT390-bisFv(UCHT1) Fusion Protein in Patients With Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma

Brief Summary

      This is a Phase II clinical trial aimed at treating a subgroup of patients with cutaneous
      T-cell lymphoma. The drug consists of a toxin, called diphtheria toxin, which is attached to
      an antibody that can specifically target cancerous T-cells. Our primary objectives are,
      therefore, to determine the patient subgroup with respect to disease burden who best responds
      to this experimental drug in treating CD3 positive T cell malignancies. We will be
      determining how the patient and their disease respond to this research agent.

      The Clinical Response Data analysis from October 2014 done at the completion of the Phase I
      portion of A-dmT390-bisFv(UCHT1) fusion protein clinical trial showed that there were 25
      evaluable patients who received all 8 doses varying between 2.5 and 11.25 µg/kg per dose.
      There were responses at all the lower dose levels up to 7.5 µg/kg per dose. The overall
      response rate was 36% and the complete response rate was 16% (when followed for 6 months). We
      have identified a subgroup of CTCL patients that have a very high response rate. If we
      exclude patients whose mSWAT scores never exceeded 50 (50% of skin surface area times a
      multiplier) and who never had lymph node involvement or stage III disease we are left with 9
      patients. This subgroup has an overall response rate of 89% and a complete response rate of
      50% (when followed for 6 months). Of these 4 patients currently in complete remission, three
      are long-term responders. Two are over 6 years in duration and one over 5 years duration.
      These may represent cures. The long time periods in the transition from partial response to
      complete response without treatment, 6 months to two years, suggests that the study drug in
      addition to exerting a direct killing effect on tumor also functions as an immunomodulator.

Detailed Description

      The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the clinical responses including response
      rate and duration and correlate with patient disease stage, tumor burden, anti-DT titer and
      degree of T cell depletion induced by A-dmDT390-bisFv(UCHT1) fusion protein for patients with
      surface CD3+ malignant diseases. The secondary objective is to further explore the toxicity
      profile of A-dmDT390-bisFv(UCHT1) fusion protein for a high-response subgroup of patients
      with CTCL whose disease stage has not progressed beyond stage IB/IIB with mSWAT < 50%.
      Patients will receive full supportive care including transfusions of irradiated washed blood
      and blood products, antibiotics, antiemetics, etc, when appropriate. However, other
      anti-neoplastic drugs or hematopoietic growth factors (e.g., erythropoietin, interleukin-11,
      G-CSF and GM-CSF) are not allowed. Treatment will consist of one 4 day cycle consisting of 2
      daily infusions for a total of 8 treatments given on an outpatient basis. Patients will be
      monitored until day 14 for signs of late drug toxicity by a daily phone call from their
      health care provider. Subjects will be instructed on how to monitor their own blood pressure
      at home and encouraged to measure and chart their daily weights that they can report to their
      health care provider. Off-treatment follow-up will be based upon response. Patients who
      experience a partial or complete remission who later relapse can receive radiation treatment
      of new lesions and remain on study as this course is typical of responses to an
      immunomodulating drug. Patients will have a follow-up visit and testing on day 37. Patients
      with partial or complete remissions will have another follow-up visit on day 60, then every
      three months for 1 year, followed by annual visits to assess duration of the response. To
      accommodate patients, we are offering a travel reimbursement program. Due to the 4 days of
      consecutive infusions, we will reimburse the expense the patient would incur to travel to the
      participating institution for treatment.


        1. Evaluate the overall clinical responses including response rate and duration in a larger
           group of CTCL high-response patients to see if is higher than current therapies (>49%).

        2. Determine the complete response rate and duration of response of A-dmDT390-bisFv(UCHT1)
           fusion protein in a larger group of CTCL high-response patients to see if is higher than
           current therapies (>20%).

        3. Further define toxicities of A-dmDT390-bisFv(UCHT1) regimen in patients with CTCL who
           have been selected to be free from preexisting cardiac disease and never treated with

        4. Determine if correlations exist between disease stage, tumor burden, anti-DT titer and
           degree of T cell depletion and response rate and response duration.
