ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02410239
Recruitment Status : Withdrawn (Research cancelled)
First Posted : April 7, 2015

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of mesenchymal stem cells (IT-MSC) in patients with active, advanced cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (cALD).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy Biological: Mesenchymal Stem Cells Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a single-institution dose escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of intrathecally administered allogeneic, 3rd party mesenchymal stem cells (IT-MSC) in patients with active, advanced cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (cALD).

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 0 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: MT2014-14 Intrathecal Administration of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (IT-MSC) for the Treatment of Advanced Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy (cALD)
Estimated Study Start Date : June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Mesenchymal Stem Cell
Third party donor Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) will be administered via intrathecal administration at the assigned dose on days 0, 7 and 14. Dose escalation will be guided by a fast track design. One patient is entered per dose level until a DLT is experienced. At that point, two additional patients will be enrolled at the same dose level. Dose levels will be 2.5 x 10e6 MSC/kg per dose, 5 x 10e6 MSC/kg per dose or 7.5 x 10e6 MSC/kg per dose.
Biological: Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: Day 28 post intrathecal injection of MSC ]
    Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of intrathecally-administered allogeneic, third-party mesenchymal stem cells (IT-MSC) in patients with active, advanced cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (cALD).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Radiographic Response [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Evaluate the incidence of, and time to, radiographic response in patients receiving IT-MSC for active, advanced cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy. Radiographic response is defined as the resolution of intravenous gadolinium contrast enhancement on brain MRI, or the absence of an increase in Loes score between the enrollment MRI and 6 month MRI.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   4 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age ≥ 4 years at time of study enrollment
  • Diagnosis of ALD - the diagnosis of ALD can be made by either biochemical or molecular/genetic evidence (plasma VLCFA or ABCD1 mutation analysis) supportive of ALD as the cause of cerebral demyelination
  • Evidence of active cerebral disease - defined as the presence of gadolinium enhancement on a single brain MRI study - MRI used for eligibility determination may be performed at an outside institution; the most recent MRI used to determine eligibility must be within 2 calendar months of the date of enrollment on this study
  • ALD MRI (Loes) score ≥ 10
  • Off of N-acetylcysteine, systemic immunosuppressive drugs or any other therapeutic intervention (except hydrocortisone and/or fludracortisone for the treatment of adrenal insufficiency) for ≥ 10 days prior to the first IT-MSC dose
  • Life expectancy of >6 months as determined by the enrolling researcher and documented in the medical record
  • Voluntary written consent provided by parent(s)/guardian(s)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • A candidate for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation as determined by the University of Minnesota Inherited Metabolic and Storage Disease group
  • Inability to undergo sedation, lumbar puncture or MRI studies for any reason
  • Inability to stay in Minnesota for therapy through the day 28 evaluation
