BACKGROUND TRA-8 is a murine agonist monoclonal antibody to death receptor 5 (DR5), which is able to trigger apoptosis in DR5 positive human tumor cells without the aid of crosslinking. It has demonstrated cytotoxicity in vitro and in vivo antitumor efficacy to a wide range of solid tumors in murine xenograft models. Tigatuzumab is a humanized IgG1(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the tolerability and activity of intratumoral administered human interleukin 12 encoded by a vector derived from the canarypox virus (ALVAC-IL-12). Nine patients with surgically incurable metastatic melanoma who had subcutaneous nodules available for injection were enrolled. ALVAC-IL-12 was administered by intratumoral(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the safety and activity of the intratumoral administration of the immune costimulatory molecule, B7.1, encoded by a vector derived from the canarypox virus, ALVAC (ALVAC-B7.1), alone and with the intratumoral injection of ALVAC encoding the immune-stimulatory cytokine, interleukin 12 (ALVAC-IL-12).

Immunization with plasmid DNA represents an attractive method for increasing cellular immune responses against cancer antigens. The safety and immunologic response of a plasmid encoding the MART-1 melanocyte differentiation antigen was evaluated in 12 patients with resected melanoma at risk for relapse. As a control, patients were also administered a(More)
PURPOSE To determine the maximal tolerated dose and dose-limiting toxicities (DLT) of pegamotecan (polyethylene glycol-camptothecin) in patients with advanced malignancies when administered in cycles of once weekly for 3 of 4 weeks. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Eligible patients had advanced solid tumors that failed to respond to standard therapy or for which no(More)
PURPOSE KW-2871 (IgG1 kappa chimeric antibody) targets GD3, which is upregulated in melanomas. We conducted a phase I trial of KW-2871 in patients with metastatic melanoma. METHODS Seventeen (17) patients were enrolled and received an initial test dose (10 mg/m2) intravenously. Two 2 weeks later, patients were stratified into 4 cohorts to receive 4 doses(More)
PURPOSE Antibodies targeting GD3 gangliosides highly expressed on melanomas mediate immune effector functions in vitro and inhibit animal model melanoma tumor growth in vivo. Because GD3 is expressed also on a subpopulation of human lymphocytes, we characterized the in vitro immune effects of murine R24 and a chimeric anti-GD3 antibody (KW-2871). DESIGN(More)
