The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of IMMU-132 as a single agent administered in 3-week treatment cycles for up to 8 cycles, in previously treated patients with advanced epithelial cancer.The secondary objectives are to obtain initial data concerning pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity, and efficacy with this dosing regimen. IMMU-132 targets the TROP-2 antigen which is expressed on a variety of cancers. The antibody, RS7, is attached to SN38, which is the active metabolite of irinotecan. This is planned as a multi-center study. In Phase II, up to 130 patients (assessable) in triple-negative breast cancer, up to 100 patients (assessable) in non-small cell and small-cell lung cancer and up to 50 patients (assessable) per other cancer types included in the protocol will be studied at the 10 mg/kg dose.
This is a Phase I/II, open-label study of IMMU-132 in previously treated patients with
advanced epithelial cancers, including ovarian, breast, prostate (hormone refractory), lung
(non-small cell and small cell), head & neck (squamous cell), esophageal, gastric,
colorectal, pancreatic, hepatocellular, renal (clear cell), endometrial, cervical,
urothelial, thyroid cancers and glioblastoma multiforme. Patients receive IMMU-132
administered once-weekly for the first 2 weeks of 3-week treatment cycles. Patients may
receive up to a maximum total of 8 cycles (16 doses), but patients with a partial response or
stable disease at that time, or patients who had achieved an objective response but relapsed
after discontinuing treatment, may continue to be treated based on physician discretion.
Treatment will continue until unacceptable toxicity or progression of disease. Both safety
and efficacy will be assessed.

- Refractory to or relapsed after at least one prior standard therapeutic regimen
(Appendix 1 lists approved or standard chemotherapeutic agents for each cancer type.
Patients who have not received all approved or standard treatments for their cancer
must be informed that these alternatives to receiving IMMU-132 are available prior to
consenting to participate in this trial.)
- Adequate performance status (ECOG 0 or 1)
- Expected survival > 6 months.
- Measurable disease by CT or MRI.
- At least 2 weeks beyond treatment (chemotherapy, investigational drugs including small
molecular inhibitors, immunotherapy and/or radiation therapy) or major surgery and
recovered from all acute toxicities to Grade 1 or less (except alopecia).
- At least 2 weeks beyond high dose systemic corticosteroids (however, low dose
corticosteroids < 20 mg prednisone or equivalent daily are permitted).
- Adequate hematology without ongoing transfusional support (hemoglobin > 9 g/dL, ANC >
1,500 per mm3, platelets > 100,000 per mm3).
- Adequate renal and hepatic function (creatinine ≤ 2.0 x IULN, bilirubin ≤ 1.5 IULN,
AST and ALT ≤ 3.0 x IULN or 5 x IULN if know liver metastases).
- Otherwise, all toxicity at study entry < Grade 1.
-•Women who are pregnant or lactating.
- Women of childbearing potential and fertile men unwilling to use effective
contraception during study until conclusion of 12-week post-treatment evaluation
- Patients with Gilbert's disease.
- Patients with brain metastases can be enrolled only if treated, non-progressive brain
metastases and off high-dose steroids (>20 mg prednisone or equivalent) for at least 4
- Presence of bulky disease (defined as any single mass > 7 cm in its greatest
dimension). Patients with a mass over 7 cm, but otherwise eligible, may be considered
for enrollment after discussion and approval with the medical monitor.
- Patients with active ≥ grade 2 anorexia, nausea or vomiting, and/or signs of
- Patients with non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ of the cervix are
eligible, while patients with other prior malignancies must have had at least a 3-year
- Patients known to be HIV positive, hepatitis B positive, or hepatitis C positive.
- Known history of unstable angina, MI, or CHF present within 6 months or clinically
significant cardiac arrhythmia (other than stable atrial fibrillation) requiring
- Known history of clinically significant active COPD, or other moderate-to-severe
chronic respiratory illness present within 6 months.
- Prior history of clinically significant bleeding, intestinal obstruction, or GI
perforation within 6 months of initiation of study treatment.
- Infection requiring intravenous antibiotic use within 1 week.
- history of an anaphylactic reaction to irinotecan or ≥ Grade 3 GI toxicity to prior
- Other concurrent medical or psychiatric conditions that, in the Investigator's
opinion, may be likely to confound study interpretation or prevent completion of study
procedures and follow-up examinations.
