Purpose: Inotuzumab ozogamicin (CMC-544) is an antibody-targeted chemotherapy agent composed of a humanized anti-CD22 antibody conjugated to calicheamicin, a potent cytotoxic agent. This was a phase I study to determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD), safety, and preliminary efficacy of inotuzumab ozogamicin in an expanded MTD cohort of patients with relapsed or refractory CD22+ B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Patients and Methods: Inotuzumab ozogamicin was administered intravenously as a single agent once every 3 or 4 weeks at doses ranging from 0.4 to 2.4 mg/m2. Outcomes included MTD, safety, pharmacokinetics, response, progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival. Results: Seventy-nine patients were enrolled. The MTD was determined to be 1.8 mg/m2. Common adverse events at the MTD were thrombocytopenia (90%), asthenia (67%), and nausea and neutropenia (51% each). The objective response rate at the end of treatment was 39% for the 79 enrolled patients, 68% for all patients with follicular NHL treated at the MTD, and 15% for all patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma treated at the MTD. Median PFS was 317 days (approximately 10.4 months) and 49 days for patients with follicular NHL and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, respectively. Conclusion: Inotuzumab ozogamicin has demonstrated efficacy against CD22+ B-cell NHL, with reversible thrombocytopenia as the main toxicity.
