Iodine I 131 Monoclonal Antibody BC8 + Autologous SCT for Relapsed Lymphoma (FH-2238)
A Study Evaluating Escalating Doses of 131I-BC8 (anti-CD45) Antibody Followed by Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Relapsed or Refractory Lymphoid Malignancies
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Open Lymphoma Phase I FH-2238

RATIONALE: Radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies, such as iodine I 131 monoclonal antibody BC8, can find cancer cells and carry cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Giving iodine I 131 monoclonal antibody BC8 before an autologous stem cell transplant may be an effective treatment for lymphoma.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of iodine I 131 monoclonal antibody BC8 when given before an autologous stem cell transplant in treating patients with lymphoma that has relapsed or not responded to treatment.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No


  • Histologically confirmed lymphoma, including 1 of the following:

    • B-cell or T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)

      • Documented CD45 antigen expression in tumor specimens
    • Hodgkin lymphoma

      • Must have CD45+ cells adjacent to the Reed Sternberg cells
  • Must have received at least 1 prior standard systemic therapy AND have documented recurrent or refractory disease

    • Patients with mantle cell lymphoma or other high-risk NHL (e.g., T-cell NHL) may be in first complete remission or partial remission
  • Meets 1 of the following criteria:

    • Tumor mass amenable to core needle biopsy during the dosimetry phase
    • Measurable tumor mass with ≥ 1 site of involvement measuring 2.0 cm in largest dimension on CT imaging (for purposes of planar and/or SPECT/CT imaging tumor dosimetry)

      • Disease that does not allow tumor dosimetry allowed
  • No circulating lymphoma cells by morphology or flow cytometry (> 0.1%) at or near the time of peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) collection (if unpurged/unselected PBSC are to be used)

    • Patients with cryopreserved PBSC that are negative (≤ 0.1%) by flow cytometry are eligible
  • Must have ≥ 4x 10^6 CD34/kg autologous hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) available

    • Patients who underwent prior autologous HSC transplantation must have ≥ 2 x 10^6 CD34/kg autologous HSC available
  • No CNS lymphoma
