Phase I/II MAHCT w/ TCell Depleted Graft w/ Simultaneous Infusion Conventional and Regulatory T Cell

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)
Verified February 2017 by Stanford University
National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Last verified: February 2017
For patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing allogeneic myeloablative (MA) HCT with a T cell depleted graft, the infusion of naturally occurring regulatory T cells with conventional T cells (T cell addback) in pre-defined doses and ratios will reduce the incidence of acute graft vs host disease while augmenting the graft vs leukemia effect and improving immune reconstitution.

Condition Intervention Phase
Myeloid Leukemia, Chronic
Acute Myelogenous Leukemia
Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)
Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • (Phase II) Event free survival post-HCT [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 54
Study Start Date: December 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dose escalation
For the Phase I arm of the study the addition of planned numbers and ratios of Treg compared to Tcon will occur at defined time points after hematopoietic cell infusion. Each cohort will have 3 patients per group. The initial doses and ratios utilized will be 1 x 10^6/kg of T reg cells to 3x10^6/kg of Tcon cells at a 1:3 ratio. In order to progress to the next dose level, there must be no evidence of grade 3 or 4 acute GVHD.
Biological: Conventional T cells (Tcon) and Regulatory T cells (Treg)
A baseline cell dose of conventional T cells of 1x10^6/kg will be used with escalation to the maximum tolerated dose up to 1x10^7/kg
Other Name: Purified regulatory T cells
