131I-omburtamab Radioimmunotherapy for Neuroblastoma Central Nervous System/Leptomeningeal Metastases


Brief description of study

Children with a neuroblastoma diagnose and central nervous system (CNS)/leptomeningeal metastases will be given up to 2 rounds of intracerebroventricular treatment with a radiolabelled monoclonal antibody, 131I-omburtamab to evaluate efficacy and safety

Detailed Study Description

One 131I-omburtamab treatment cycle takes 5 weeks and includes a dosimetry dose, a treatment dose, an observation period and post-treatment evaluations.

  • A dosimetry dose (2mCi) of 131I-omburtamab is administered during week 1 followed by blood/cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) samples and whole-body scintigraphy at predefined intervals during the following 48 hours after treatment.
  • A therapeutic dose (50mCi) of 131I-omburtamab is administered during week 2 followed by a 3-week observation period that includes a repeated MRI, CSF cytology, and safety monitoring.
  • A second treatment cycle of 131I-omburtamab is administered during week 6 if there is no objective disease progression week 5 after the first injection, and the participant is presenting without unexpected and clinical significant Grade 4 toxicity. For participants with ongoing Grade 3 toxicity a second doing cycle will take place according to the discretion of the investigator.

Participants can be treated in an outpatient setting or may be admitted as inpatients for both the dosimetry and the therapeutic injections.

Participants completing at least one treatment period will first enter a follow-up period through week 26 and thereafter the long-term follow-up where patients will be evaluated for up to 3 years post-131I-omburtamab treatment where after the trial is ended

Participants will be monitored for adverse events during and after 131I-omburtamab injection and will have pre- and post-treatment clinical assessments including neurologic examination, hematology and serum chemistry, blood and CSF cultures, endocrinology assessments, CSF analysis, and, pre- and post 131I-omburtamab performance testing. Performance testing will be performed at trial baseline, at week 26 and every 6 months during trial period.
