Condition(s) targeted: Neuroblastoma

Intervention: 3F8 monoclonal antibody and 13-cis-Retinoic Acid (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2

Status: Active, not recruiting

Sponsored by: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Brian Kushner, MD, Principal Investigator, Affiliation: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center


The purpose of this study is to see if high-dose 3F8 combined with GM-CSF is better than standard dose 3F8 in treating neuroblastoma. Another purpose of the study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, 3F8 has on cancer. The investigators also want to see if the antibody works against a very small amount of neuroblastoma (minimal residual disease) that is left in the bone marrow.

Official title: High-Dose 3F8/GM-CSF Immunotherapy Plus 13-Cis-Retinoic Acid for Consolidation of First Remission After Myeloablative Therapy and Autologous Stem-Cell Transplantation in Patients With High-Risk Neuroblastoma: A Phase II Study

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Assess the impact of high-dose 3F8/GM-CSF on relapse-free survival

Secondary outcome:

Apply real-time quantitative RT-PCR to test the hypothesis that the minimal residual disease content of bone marrow

Monitor safety of the high-dose antibody treatment
