Brief Summary:
This is a phase I trial with pilot expansion of HLA-haploidentical or HLA-mismatched related donor nicotinamide expanded-natural killer (NAM-NK) cell based therapy for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (MM) or relapsed/refractory CD20-positive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The primary endpoint of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of NAM-NK cells while maintaining safety.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Multiple Myeloma
After a lymphodepleting preparative regimen of cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, patients receive expanded NAM-NK cells followed by a short course of interleukin-2 (IL-2) to facilitate natural killer cell survival and expansion in vivo. Monoclonal antibodies and elotuzumab for Multiple Myeloma patients, will be administered prior to and after the natural killer cell infusion(s) to facilitate tumor targeting and antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC).
Biological: Nicotinamide Expanded Haploidentical or Mismatched Related Donor Natural Killer Cells
  • Cyclophosphamide 40 mg/kg x 1 day on Day -5
  • Fludarabine 25 mg/m^2 x 3 days (Day -5, Day -4, day-3)
Other Name: NAM-NK

Experimental: Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
After a lymphodepleting preparative regimen of cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, patients receive expanded NAM-NK cells followed by a short course of interleukin-2 (IL-2) to facilitate natural killer cell survival and expansion in vivo. Monoclonal antibodies and rituximab for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma patients, will be administered prior to and after the natural killer cell infusion(s) to facilitate tumor targeting and antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC).
Biological: Nicotinamide Expanded Haploidentical or Mismatched Related Donor Natural Killer Cells
  • Cyclophosphamide 40 mg/kg x 1 day on Day -5
  • Fludarabine 25 mg/m^2 x 3 days (Day -5, Day -4, day-3)

  2. Occurrence of Grade III or IV acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) [ Time Frame: 28 days post infusion ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurrence of treatment related mortality (TRM) [ Time Frame: 2 months post infusion ]
  2. Occurrence of disease response [ Time Frame: 28 days post infusion ]
  3. Number of patients alive without progression [ Time Frame: 1 year post infusion ]
