Brief Summary:
This is a study in which pancreatic cancer patients receive a immunotherapy with CART-meso cells administered at 3 days after one dose of cyclophosphamide. CART-meso cells are patients' own T cells lentivirally transduced to express anti-mesothelin scFv fused to TCRζ and 4-1BB costimulatory domains.The lymphodepletion with cyclophosphamide may prolong the persistence of CART cells.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pancreatic Cancer Biological: CART-meso cells Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This study is being conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of immunotherapy with CART-meso cells in dose escalation design. The trial will begin in Cohort 1 and progress to Cohorts 2, depending upon dose limiting toxicity (DLT) assessment .

Subjects will be enrolled serially, but infusions will be staggered to allow assessment of DLTs for determination of cohort progression, expansion, or dose de-escalation.

Cohort 1 subjects will receive a single dose of 1-3x10^7 /m^2 lentiviral transduced CART-meso cells after conditioning chemotherapeutic regimen.

Cohort 2 subjects will receive a single dose of 1-3x10^8 /m^2 lentiviral transduced CART-meso cells cells after conditioning chemotherapeutic regimen.

Dose limiting toxicity is defined as any adverse reactions at level 3 or above that may be associated with CART-meso within 4 weeks after infusion.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CART-meso cells
A single dose of CART-meso T cells will be administered intravenously.The dose is 1-3×10^7/m^2 CART positive cells(chort 1)or 1-3×10^8/m^2 CART positive cells(chort 2).
Biological: CART-meso cells
CART-meso is a 2nd CAR, with mesothelin as target protein, 4-1BB as co- stimulator. The infusion will be scheduled to occur 3 (±1) days after a single dose of 1.5 grams/m^2 of cyclophosphamide, which will be administered according to standard procedures, Thereby enhancing the efficacy of anti-tumor, reducing the potential of side effects.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of CART-meso infusion: number of adverse events [ Time Frame: 60 months ]
    Number of Adverse Events evaluated with NCI CTC AE, version 4.0[Safety evaluation]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical response of CART-meso [ Time Frame: 60 months ]
    Number of patients with tumor response including overal remission ,complete ression,progression-free survival,progressive disease ,etc.

  2. CAR-T cell detection [ Time Frame: 60 months ]
    Detection of transferred T cells in peripheral blood or bone marrow using multi-parameter flow cytometer.
