Brief Summary:
A single arm, open-label pilot study is designed to determine the safety, tolerability and engraftment of CAR-CLD18 T cells in patients with advanced gastric adenocarcinoma and pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Gastric Adenocarcinoma Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Genetic: CAR-CLD18 T Cells Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

For patients with gastric adenocarcinoma who have not been cured with first line chemotherapy, and who are not willing to undergo second line chemotherapy after the failure of first line chemotherapy while there are no effective therapies for their unmet medical needs known at this time, and for patients with advanced/metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma which has relapsed after surgery or for which there is no surgical indication, who have not been cured with or refused to receive other standard regimens, single or multiple doses of CAR-CLD18 T cells will be given to observe safety and efficacy of CAR-CLD18 T cells.

Primary objectives:

Determine the safety, tolerability and cytokinetics of the autologous T cells transduced with anti-Claudin18.2 lentiviral vector in patients with gastric adenocarcinoma and pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

Secondary objectives:

Make a preliminary evaluation on the efficacy of CAR-CLD18 T cells in patients with gastric adenocarcinoma and pancreatic adenocarcinoma with the following parameters:

Time of tumor progression (TTP);

Disease Control Rate (DCR);

Objective Remission Rate (ORR);

Overall Survival (OS).

Lymphodepletion conditioning regimen will be applied prior to CAR-CLD18 T cell infusion.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerance [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

    During the trial conduction, especially within the 24 weeks of treatment phase when CAR-CLD18 T cell administered, all adverse events (including laboratory abnormality and clinical events) will be closely monitored, and all ≥ grade 3 adverse events per CTCAE (v 3.0) will be recorded, including but not limited to the toxicities potentially suspected to relate to infusion procedures and/or CAR-CLD18 T cell therapy as listed below:

    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Nausea, vomiting and other gastrointestinal symptoms
    • Fatigue
    • Hypotension
    • Respiratory distress
    • Tumor lysis syndrome
    • Cytokine release syndrome
    • Neutropenia, thrombocytopenia
    • Liver and kidney dysfunction


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Engraftment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Duration of in vivo survival of CAR-CLD18 T cells is defined as "engraftment". The primary engraftment endpoint is the number of DNA vector copies per mL blood of CAR-CLD18 T cells at regular intervals through week 4 following the initial infusion. Q-PCR for CAR-CLD18 T vector sequences will be performed until any 2 sequential tests are negative, documented as engraftment and persistence of CAR-CLD18 T cells.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Anti-tumor responses to CAR-CLD18 T cell infusions [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Disease Control Rate (DCR)

  2. Anti-tumor responses to CAR-CLD18 T cell infusions [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Progression-free Survival (PFS)

  3. Anti-tumor responses to CAR-CLD18 T cell infusions [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Time of Tumor Progression (TTP)

  4. Anti-tumor responses to CAR-CLD18 T cell infusions [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Overall Survival (OS)

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients aged 18 - 70 with pathologically confirmed advanced gastric adenocarcinoma and pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
  2. Biopsy confirmation of Claudin18.2 positive.
  3. Patients with advanced gastric adenocarcinoma who have not been cured with second line chemotherapy, and who are not willing to undergo second line chemotherapy after the failure of first line chemotherapy. (1) Failure of treatment is defined as disease progression, recurrence or metastatic disease, or intolerable toxicities occurred after treatment. (2) Each line of treatment during the period of disease progression includes one or more chemotherapy drugs which are administered for not less than one cycle or even longer. Neoadjuvant/adjuvant therapy can be applied at an earlier stage of treatment. If patient has developed recurrence or metastatic disease within 24 weeks of neoadjuvant/adjuvant therapy, it is considered as one line of systemic chemotherapy. (3) Therapies that can be performed at an earlier stage are chemotherapy in conjunction with molecular targeted drugs.
  4. Patients with advanced/metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma which has relapsed after surgery or for which there is no surgical indication, who have not been cured with or refused to receive other standard regimens.
  5. Expected survival after first dose of study drug > 12 weeks.
  6. At least one measurable lesion (≥ 10 mm) for imaging assessment.
  7. ECOG scores 0 - 1.
