Protocol

CD22AB: A phase I, multi-center, dose escalation study of CAT-8015 in children, adolescents and young adults with refractory CD22+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), or non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) (CAT-8015-1004)

Diseases

Leukemias / Lymphomas : acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), including lymphoblastic lymphoma, Burkitt’s lymphoma, and large cell lymphoma

Description

The main purpose of this study is to estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), defined as the highest dose of CAT-8015 that can be safely administered to a patient. This information will be used to recommend the next phase dosage for further pediatric development. The drug CAT-3888, a closely related predecessor compound, has been well tolerated and highly effective in adult patients with lymphoid malignancies.

CAT-8015 is made up of two parts: 1) a modified mouse antibody that combines with a protein from the immune system, called “CD22”, which can also be found on the surface of cancer cells, and 2) a toxin (a type of poison). In laboratory experiments, CAT-8015 has been shown to kill leukemia cells that have the CD22 protein on their surface.

CAT-8015 will be given in "cycles" with each cycle lasting about 3 weeks. How long you stay on this study will depend on the number of treatment cycles that you receive.
