Toxicity [ Time Frame: 5 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Evaluate the toxicity post-infusion including mortality, occurrence of acute graft versus host disease (GVHD) and other severe toxicity until a minimum of 8 weeks following the last infusion, then at least monthly for 3 additional months. Unacceptable toxicity was defined as grade ≥ III aGVHD of the gut or liver or Grade 4 aGVHD of the skin lasting > 7 days; other Grade 4 toxicity from the procedure in the major organs that lasted > 5 days; or treatment-related mortality (TRM). Though these infusions are provided early following transplantation and severe toxicity could still have occurred due to the primary transplant procedure, for this study any aGVHD or other toxicities occurring after the first day of infusion of the natural killer (NK) cell enriched Donor Lymphocyte Infusions (DLIs) is considered here as study related.

Safety Trial of NK DLI From 6/6 HLA Matched Family Member Following Nonmyeloablative ASCT
Safety Trial of Natural Killer (NK) Cell Donor Lymphocyte Infusions(DLI) From 6/6 Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Matched Family Member Following Nonmyeloablative Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation (ASCT)

Evaluate the safety of natural killer (NK) cell infusion using CD56 monoclonal antibody selected with Miltenyi Biotec system following nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation (SCT) from matched donors. This pilot study will evaluate toxicity including mortality, occurrence of acute graft versus host disease and other severe toxicity.

The use of non-selected donor lymphocyte infusions (DLIs) (to help early immune recovery and induce antitumor response) following nonmyeloablative allogeneic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is also complicated by the risk of acute graft versus host disease (aGVHD) with 30-40% of patients experiencing grade III-IV aGVHD. Data suggests that the use of natural killer (NK) cells (instead of nonselected DLIs) in this setting may mediate a graft versus tumor (GVT) effect independently of aGVHD.

This pilot study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of donor natural killer (NK) cell selection and infusion following nonmyeloablative allogeneic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) from matched donors.

Interventional
Phase 1
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Lymphoma
  • Device: NK Cell infusion using CD56 monoclonal antibody
    The cells from leukapheresis will be natural killer (NK) cell selected using a CD56 antibody and a cell column system provided by Miltenyi Biotec. The target cell dose for each NK cell infusion will be up to 1 X 10(7) CD56+ cells/kg patient weight with less than 0.5 X 10(6) CD3+ cells/kg patient weight. The first NK cell infusion will be administered 6 weeks post transplant in patients who have ≤ grade II acute graft versus host disease (aGVHD) at the time of infusion. Patients will be evaluated for toxicity and response until 20 weeks after the last NK Infusion.
    Other Name: CD56 monoclonal antibody
  • Procedure: Donor Apheresis
    Apheresis repeated daily up to 3 days until target dose of cells reached (preferably without donor receiving growth factors). Cells were transfused immediately after collection and processing. If collections occurred during initial mobilization at the time of stem cell transplant, the donor was off growth factor for >24 hours. These extra cell collections from the donor were sufficient for the natural killer cells used in the trial. The cells were NK selected using a CD56 antibody (CliniMACS CD56 Reagent), CliniMACSplus instrument and CliniMACS tubing set provided by Miltenyi Biotec using the company protocol (Miltenyi Biotec Inc, Auburn, California). Pre and post processing cell count, viability, Hematopoietic Progenitor Cell Assay (HPCA) and flow analysis were done.
