The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about the highest tolerated dose of T cells that can be safely given to patients whose cancer has returned after a umbilical cord blood transplant (UCBT).

Condition Intervention Phase
Myeloproliferative Diseases
Drug: Ex vivo Expanded T Cells
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I Study of Ex Vivo Expanded Donor Cord Blood T-Lymphocyte Infusion in Post-Transplant Relapsed Patients

Further study details as provided by M.D. Anderson Cancer Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of ex vivo Expanded Cord Blood T Cells [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) defined as the highest dose for which the probability of toxicity is closest to 30% without exceeding 30%.

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Actual Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ex vivo Expanded T Cell Infusion
Three patients enrolled at Starting Dose 1: 1 * 10e6 T cells/kg infused through central venous catheter (CVC). If no toxicities occur, next three patients enrolled at Dose 2, etc. If any patient develops stage IV graft versus host disease (GVHD), next patient treated at next lower dose. If patient is prescribed a higher dose but the lab is unable to produce this amount of cells, patient will be treated at a lower dose. This will continue for up to 3 dose levels, until the highest tolerable dose of cord blood is found.
Drug: Ex vivo Expanded T Cells
Starting Dose 1: 1 * 10e6 T cells/kg infused through central venous catheter (CVC).

Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Months and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. UCB recipients with underlying hematological malignancies presenting with post transplant relapse and have available approximately 400 microliter to 1 ml aliquots or CB wash from previous transplant.
  2. UCB recipients with T-cell and/or overall chimerism value of less than 80%, in absence of relapse and have available approximately 400 microliter to 1 ml aliquots or CB wash from previous transplant.
  3. Patient's Age Criteria: Age greater than 5 months old. Eligibility for pediatric patients will be determined in conjunction with an MDACC pediatrician.
  4. Performance score of at least 80% by Karnofsky or PS < 3 (ECOG) (age >/= 12 years), or Lansky Play-Performance Scale of at least 60% or greater (age <12 years).
  5. Negative Beta HCG or urine test in females of childbearing potential defined as not post-menopausal for 12 months or no previous surgical sterilization and willing to use an effective contraceptive measure while on the study.
  6. Patient or patient's legal representative, parent(s) or guardian able to sign informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. HIV positive (due to the extreme immunosuppressive nature of allogeneic stem cell transplant).
  2. Patients with active (untreated) CNS disease.
  3. Any active GVHD.
  4. Active invasive infections.
  5. Pregnant or breast-feeding.
