Radioimmunotherapy Phase I Dose-Escalation Studies in Prostate Cancer Using 177Lu-J591 Antibody: Dose Fractionation Regimen

The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the experimental drug, 177Lu-J591 and see
what effects (good and bad) it has on your prostate cancer. Another purpose is to find the
highest dose of the drug that can be given without causing severe side effects.

Study Design: We plan to perform a phase I dose-escalation study. The trial is designed to
determine the cumulative MTD in a FDR in which 177Lu-J591 will be given in 2 doses, 2 weeks
apart. The dose escalation will start at 20 mCi/m2 and escalate in increments of 5 mCi/m2 to
55 mCi/m2 in up to 8 cohorts.We plan to recruit a maximum of 68 subjects in this trial.

Specific Aims: 1. Determine the cumulative MTD of 177Lu-J591 in a 2 week dose-fractionation

2. Perform imaging and pharmacokinetic (PK) studies with 177Lu-J591 in order to define the PK
and dosimetry of 177Lu-J591 3. Determine the myelotoxicity of fractionated dose of 177Lu-J591
4. Monitor biochemical (PSA) and/or measurable disease response and duration.

Following the administration of 177Lu-J591 mAb on day 0, blood samples may be obtained at 10
min, 1, 2, 4 hrs, days 1, once during days 3-6, day 7 and 14. In addition, total body images
may be obtained on day 0 at 1-4 hours after study treatment, day 1, once during days 3-6,
days 7 and 14 using a gamma camera. (Amendment dated 15 July 2009: As investigators have
gained ample information from the initial cohorts, PK and 177Lu-J591 imaging studies (other
than the day 6-8 scan) will be considered optional.) Patients will be followed for a minimum
of 12 weeks after the 2nd dose of 177Lu-J591 (total 14 weeks) or until toxicities resolve,
disease progression or administration of alternative therapy for the patient¿s prostate
cancer. Various clinical and laboratory evaluations will be performed during the first week
and then every week until 12 weeks. These include, blood chemistries, CBCs, serum PSA levels,
etc. If the patient¿s disease is stable or responding at 12 weeks after his last dose, he
will continue to be followed until progression of disease. During the long-term follow-up,
the patient¿s PSA will be monitored at least every 6 weeks and CT/bone scans will be
evaluated at least every 18 weeks until disease progression.

Inclusion Criteria:

1. Histologic diagnosis (recent or remote) of prostate adenocarcinoma.

5. Platelet count > 150,000/mm3.

6. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 2,000/mm3

7. Normal coagulation profile (PT, PTT), unless on a stable anticoagulation regimen

8. Hematocrit > 30% or Hemoglobin > 10g/dL without blood transfusion dependency

9. Patients of child bearing potential must agree to use an effective method of

15. Life expectancy < 6 months

16. Other serious illness(es) involving the cardiac, respiratory, CNS, renal, hepatic or
hematological organ systems which might preclude completion of this study or interfere
with determination of causality of any adverse effects experienced in this study.

17. Prior treatment with monoclonal Ab J591 labeled with therapeutic doses of 177Lu or 90Y
