PURPOSE We conducted a phase I clinical trial of BR96-Doxorubicin (BR96-Dox), a chimeric anti-Lewis Y (Le(Y)) monoclonal antibody conjugated to doxorubicin, in patients whose tumors expressed the Le(Y) antigen. The study aimed to determine the toxicity, maximum-tolerated dose, pharmacokinetics, and immunogenicity of BR96-Dox. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was(More)
The IFNs, alpha and gamma, have been shown to enhance the tumor-associated glycoprotein (TAG-72) on adenocarcinoma cells in vitro and in mice with human breast cancer xenografts, resulting in improved targeting of monoclonal antibody CC49. To determine the effect of IFN-alpha on biodistribution and tumor uptake of 131I-labeled CC49, patients with metastatic(More)
Preclinical studies have demonstrated that recombinant IFN-alpha (rIFN-alpha) can enhance the tumor associated glycoprotein 72 (TAG-72) on tumors. To determine whether rIFN-alpha could enhance TAG-72 expression in vivo in patients, 15 women with breast cancer were randomized to receive daily injections of rIFN-alpha (3 x 10(6) units/m2 for 14 days)(More)
BTI-322, a rat monoclonal IgG2b directed against the CD2 antigen on T cells and natural killer (NK) cells, blocks primary and memory alloantigen proliferative responses in vitro. We have evaluated the pharmacokinetics and safety of BTI-322 during treatment of 20 transplant recipients with steroid-refractory acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Treatment(More)
INTRODUCTION ALPHA-GAL is a glycoconjugate present on cell membranes of mammals and bacteria but not humans who display anti-Gal antibodies (AB) in high titers provoked by the commensal gut flora. In the present study, we sought to determine the longitudinal course of alpha-Gal specific AB titers of all isotypes over 8 weeks among healthy adult subjects.(More)
