I. To evaluate the safety and feasibility of adoptive transfer of TGFbDNRII-transduced autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (autologous NY-ESO-1 TCR/dnTGFbetaRII transgenic T cells).
I. NY-ESO-1 TCR/ dnTGFbetaRII transgenic T cell persistence by analyzing serial peripheral blood samples for the presence of T cells with the NY-ESO-1 TCR by tetramer analysis.
II. To study T cell differentiation that correlates with higher anti-tumor responses.
III. To test the hypothesis that NY-ESO-1 TCR/dnTGFbetaRII will constitute in cells more efficient in inducing tumor regression.
IV. Determine objective tumor responses by immune-related Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (irRECIST) 1.1.
I. To evaluate the role of microbiota on the therapeutic efficacy of the proposed therapy.
OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of NY-ESO-1 TCR/TGFbDNRII-transduced TILs followed by a phase IIa study. Participants are assigned 1 to 2 cohorts.
COHORT I: Patients undergo leukapheresis on day -6, and receive cyclophosphamide intravenously (IV) over 2 hours on days -5 and -4. Patients then receive TGFbDNRII-transduced autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes IV over 15 minutes on day 0. Eligible patients who showed initial response/disease control, may receive a second TGFbDNRII-transduced autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes infusion at any time after progression is confirmed.
COHORT II: Patients undergo leukapheresis on day -6 and receive decitabine IV over 1 hour on days -6 to -4 and cyclophosphamide IV over 2 hours on days -3 and -2. Patients then receive TGFbDNRII-transduced autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes IV over 15 minutes on day 0. Eligible patients who showed initial response/disease control, may receive a second TGFbDNRII-transduced autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes infusion at any time after progression is confirmed.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at weeks 1-4, 6, 8, and 12, at 6 and 9 months, every 6 months for 5 years, and then yearly for 10 years.

- Number of Participants With Dose Limiting Toxicities [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days ]
Will be assessed using Common Toxicity Criteria. Patients will be monitored by medical histories, physical examinations, ophthalmologic exams, and blood studies to detect potential toxicities from the treatment.
the number of patients experiencing a DLT are reported.
- Number of Participants With Feasibility Concerns in Manufacturing of NY-ESO-1/ dnTGFbetaRII Engineered Cells [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
Unfeasibility will be defined as 3 or more preparations not meeting the lot release criteria in each cohort. Sufficient numbers of circulating, lot released confirmed T cells will be measured prior to administration.
The count of patients not meeting the preparation criteria are reported.
- Expression of the NY-ESO-1 T Cell Receptor (TCR) Transgenic Protein in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC) [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]TCR and vector presence will be quantitated in PBMC samples, obtained before adoptive transfer and at weeks 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 after transgenic cell adoptive transfer. Thereafter, sampling will be every 3 months during the first year, and then every 6 to 12 months per schedule of procedures and observations.
- Replication Competent Retrovirus (RCR) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be assessed in blood by polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
- Tumor Response (Complete and Partial Response) [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days after TCR transgenic PBMC adoptive transfer ]Will be determined by immune-related Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1. Response assessment will be performed by comparing standard computed tomography imaging scans and photographs of target lesions from baseline.

- ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR A SECOND TRANSGENIC T CELL INFUSION
Subjects in whom disease control was observed after the T cell infusion may be eligible for a second transgenic T cell infusion if the subject meets the following criteria:
- Patient attained confirmed disease control (either complete remission [CR], partial remission [PR] or stable disease [SD]) after the first transgenic T cell infusion

- Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements; electrocardiogram (EKG) will be done at screening; cardiac stress test will be done as clinically indicated, the specific test to be chosen at the discretion of the treating physician.
- History of severe autoimmune disease requiring steroids or other immunosuppressive treatments
- History of inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, or other chronic gastrointestinal conditions associated with diarrhea or bleeding, which in the investigator's opinion would place the patient at an increased risk for adverse effect or current acute colitis of any origin; treated cases with no active disease are eligible
- Potential requirement for systemic corticosteroids or concurrent immunosuppressive drugs based on prior history or received systemic steroids within the last 4 weeks prior to enrollment (inhaled or topical steroids at standard doses or isolated use of steroids as premedication for medical procedures to minimize allergic reaction [e.g. computed tomography (CT) scan dye] are allowed)

- Known cases of clinically active brain metastases (brain magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] as clinically indicated); prior evidence of brain metastasis successfully treated with surgery or radiation therapy will not be exclusion for participation as long as they are deemed under control at the time of study enrollment
- Dementia or significantly altered mental status that would prohibit the understanding or rendering of compliance with the requirements of this protocol even with caregiver support
- Pregnancy or breast-feeding; female patients must be surgically sterile or be postmenopausal for two years, or must agree to use effective contraception during the period of treatment and 6 months after; all female patients with reproductive potential must have a negative pregnancy test (serum/urine) within 48 hours from starting the conditioning chemotherapy
