Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Placing a tumor antigen chimeric receptor that has been created in the laboratory into patient autologous or donor-derived T cells may make the body build immune response to kill cancer cells.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying genetically engineered lymphocyte therapy in treating patients with Relapsed and/or Chemotherapy Refractory Advanced Malignancies.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Malignant Mesothelioma Pancreatic Cancer Ovarian Tumor Triple Negative Breast Cancer Endometrial Cancer Other Mesothelin Positive Tumors Biological: anti-meso-CAR vector transduced T cells Phase 1

Detailed Description:

I. Determine the safety and feasibility of the chimeric antigen receptor T cells transduced with the anti-meso vector (referred to as CART-meso cells).

II. Determine duration of in vivo survival of CART-meso cells. RT-PCR (reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) analysis of whole blood will be used to detect and quantify survival of CART-meso TCR (T-cell receptor) zeta:CD137 over time.


I. For patients with detectable disease, measure anti-tumor response due to CART-meso cell infusions.

II. Estimate relative trafficking of CART-meso cells to tumor in bone marrow and lymph nodes.

III. For patients with stored or accessible tumor cells determine tumor cell killing by CART-meso cells in vitro.

IV. Determine if cellular or humoral host immunity develops against the murine anti-meso, and assess correlation with loss of detectable CART-meso (loss of engraftment).

V. Determine the relative subsets of CART-meso T cells (Tcm, Tem, and Treg).
