Laboratory-Treated T Cells and Ipilimumab in Treating Patients With Metastatic Melanoma
This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects of giving laboratory-treated T cells and ipilimumab together to see how well they work in treating patients with metastatic melanoma. Treating a patient's T cells in the laboratory may help the T cells kill more tumor cells when they are put back in the body. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Giving laboratory-treated T cells together with ipilimumab may kill more tumor cells

|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study

Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I/II Study of Cellular Adoptive Immunotherapy Using Autologous CD8+ Antigen-Specific T Cells and Anti-CTLA4 For Patients With Metastatic Melanoma|
- Numeric frequency and functional persistence of transferred CTL [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months post-infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Determined using peptide major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-tetramer analysis or specific CDR3 T-cell-receptor (TCR) quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of transferred CTL if necessary. The function of transferred CTL will be determined by intracellular cytokine staining of tetramer+ CD8+ cells following in vitro stimulation.
- Toxicity assessment of study treatment, assessed by National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v3.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months post-infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Responses to non-targeted T cell antigens [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year following T cell infusion and/or at the time of observed partial or complete clinical response ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Blood samples taken will be analyzed for the induction of non-targeted T cell responses. Two approaches will be used: tetramer analysis and enzyme-linked immunosorbent spot (ELISPOT) assay.
|Study Start Date:||February 2009|

Experimental: Treatment (laboratory-treated T cells and ipilimumab)
Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV on day -2, therapeutic allogeneic cytotoxic T lymphocytes IV over 30-60 minutes on day 0, low-dose aldesleukin SC BID on days 0-13, and ipilimumab IV over 90 minutes on days 1, 22, 43, and 64 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

I. Evaluate the safety and efficacy of adoptively transferred cytotoxic lymphocytes (CTL) targeting melanoma tumors combined with anti-CTLA4.
II. Evaluate the influence of anti-CTLA4 (ipilimumab) on the duration of in vivo persistence and anti-tumor efficacy achieved following adoptive transfer of antigen-specific CTL.
I. Evaluate the influence of anti-CTLA4 on the induction of T cells to non-targeted tumor-associated antigens (antigen-spreading) following adoptive transfer antigen-specific CTL, and the correlation of these responses with clinical outcome.
Patients receive cyclophosphamide intravenously (IV) on day -2, therapeutic allogeneic cytotoxic T lymphocytes IV over 30-60 minutes on day 0, low-dose aldesleukin subcutaneously (SC) twice daily (BID) on days 0-13, and ipilimumab IV over 90 minutes on days 1, 22, 43, and 64 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.
