Why are we doing this research?
OPTIMUM (MIBG 2014-01) is a Phase II, Two arm, non-randomized, open-label study of therapeutic 131I-iobenguane (131I-MIBG) as single agent or in combination with Vorinostat for the treatment of neuroblastoma. The study will be conducted in male and female subjects, greater than 1 year of age, with iobenguane avid, who have recurrent or progressive disease, regardless of overall response to frontline therapy, where frontline therapy includes a minimum of 4 cycles of induction therapy at any time prior to enrollment, high-risk neuroblastoma.
Subjects who are eligible for combination treatment will receive vorinostat 180 mg/m2/dose (maximum dose 400 mg) once daily for 14 days (Day -1 to Day 12) continuously.
Subjects will receive 18 mCi/kg of 131I-MIBG intravenously on Day 1.
If the subject qualifies, the subject will receive the second treatment course of 131I-MIBG in combination with vorinostat or 131I-MIBG alone (no sooner than 6 weeks following first treatment course). Subject must have an overall response of stable disease or better, as assessed by the Investigator, and meet certain predefined criteria to receive the second course of treatment.
Following a screening period of up to 4 weeks, the duration in the study treatment phase for an individual subject, who receives two treatments, is up to 26 weeks. For an individual subject, who receives one treatment only, the duration of the treatment phase is 16 weeks. In addition, there is a 2-year follow-up after the treatment phase, during which assessments will be performed to assess disease progression, as well as record adverse events.
