  Purpose

X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID-X1) is a catastrophic disease of childhood caused by mutations in the common gamma chain (γc) gene. Affected patients typically die in the first year of life if immune reconstitution is not achieved. Patients can be successfully treated by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, particularly if they have an HLA matched sibling donor. In most cases, a matched sibling donor is not available and the majority of patients receive transplants from parental donors. These patients have significantly poorer outcomes with 10-year survival rates ranging between 55% and 75%. Gene therapy using retroviral vectors to transduce autologous hematopoietic stem cells can be used for patients that lack a matched sibling donor and results in significant immune reconstitution in most patients. However, 5 out of 20 patients have developed leukemia due to insertional mutagenesis in these initial gene therapy trials. The investigators now propose to use a novel self-inactivating lentiviral vector that has been designed to reduce the potential for insertional mutagenesis. These vector supernatants will be used to treat newly diagnosed SCID-X1 patients who lack a matched sibling donor, who are less than 12 months of age but are older than 3.5 months of age.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment

Participants will undergo a bone marrow harvest in the operating room to obtain bone marrow cells. These cells will undergo vector transduction with the lentiviral vector that contains a normal copy of the γc gene and then the transduced cells be reinfused back into the patient.

Intervention: CL20-4i-EF/a-hyc-OPT

Genetic: CL20-4i-EF/a-hyc-OPT
Participants will undergo infusion with autologous CD34+ bone marrow cells transduced with a lentiviral vector that contains a normal copy of the human γc gene.
Other Names:
  • self inactivating lentiviral vector
  • IND 14570

Detailed Description:

Bone marrow CD34+ cells will be obtained in the operating room, transduced with the lentiviral vector, and reinfused without any myeloreductive conditioning. Patients who do not show evidence for early T-cell reconstitution by 16 (+ 1) weeks after cell infusion will be considered an early failure and offered an allogeneic transplant. For all other patients, the primary endpoint assessing the efficacy of this approach will be T-cell immune reconstitution 52 weeks (+ 2) weeks after transplantation. Continued and detailed evaluation of all aspects of immune reconstitution, protocol-related toxicity, and retroviral integration sites will also be performed. This study will evaluate the first use of a SIN lentiviral vector for the treatment of SCID-X1 and may lead to a new form of therapy that could be applied to the majority of newly diagnosed patients.

OBJECTIVES

Assess the safety, feasibility and efficacy of lentiviral gene transfer in newly diagnosed SCID-X1 patients transplanted with autologous CD34+ cells that have been transduced with a self-inactivating lentiviral vector (CL20-i4-EF1α-hγc-OPT) expressing a γc gene.

Primary Objective 1: Evaluate the safety and feasibility of obtaining and infusing at least 3 million CD34+ cells per kilogram of body weight in SCID-X1 infants.

Primary Objective 2: Assess the safety of the study procedure and assess for early evidence of significant T-cell reconstitution at 16 (± 1) weeks as defined by no grade 3 or greater adverse events that are directly related to the gene transfer procedure AND the presence of at least one of the following: 1) greater than 500 T-cell receptor excision circles (TRECs) per µg of DNA OR 2) the development of T-cell proliferative responses to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) that are > 25 % of the value seen in normal controls OR 3) greater than 150 cells/ul CD3+ T-cells in the peripheral blood.

Primary Objective 3: Evaluate the efficacy of lentiviral gene transfer for inducing significant T-cell reconstitution 52 weeks (+ 2 weeks) after transplantation. Significant reconstitution of T cells is defined as at least 2 of the following 3 criteria being present:

  • Greater than 1000 copies of T-cell receptor excision circles (TRECs) per µg of DNA from peripheral blood mononuclear cells
  • the development of T-cell proliferative responses to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) that are > 50% the value seen in normal controls
  • > 300 cells/ul CD3+ T-cells in the peripheral blood
