A Phase I Study of Continuous Infusion Immunotoxin IgG-RFB4-SMPT-dgA in Refractory CD22 Positive B-Cell Lymphoma
Patients with a histologic diagnosis confirmed from a pretreatment biopsy at the
Laboratory of Pathology, NCI of one of the following entities: Diffuse small Lymphocytic
Lymphoma; Follicular, Small Cleaved cell Lymphoma; Follicular, Mixed Small Cleaved and
Large Cell Lymphoma; Follicular Large Cell Lymphoma; Diffuse, Intermediately
Differentiated Lymphocytic Lymphoma; Diffuse, Small Cleaved Cell Lymphoma; Diffuse,
Mixed Small and Large Cell Lymphoma; Diffuse, Large Cell Lymphoma; Large Cell
Immunoblastic Lymphoma; Small Noncleaved Cell Lymphoma.
Presence of CD22 antigen on at least 30 percent of tumor cells.
Presence of objectively measurable sites of disease. Bone marrow positivity and
circulating tumor cells in the peripheral blood will be considered evaluable but not

lymphocytic leukemia, and hairy cell leukemia.
Patients with objectively measurable disease outside a radiation port or disease which has
clearly progressed within a radiation port.
No CNS disease.
No pulmonary parenchymal disease.
Pleural effusions or ascites may be present.
