Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1, open-label, multi-center study to assess safety and determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of ACTR T cell product (ACTR707 or ACTR087) in combination with trastuzumab, following lymphodepleting chemotherapy in subjects with HER2-positive advanced malignancies.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 40 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1 Study of an Autologous ACTR T Cell Product in Combination With Trastuzumab, a Monoclonal Antibody, in Subjects With HER2-Positive Advanced Malignancies
Actual Study Start Date : March 13, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ACTR T cell product in combination with trastuzumab Biological: ACTR T Cell Product
Autologous Antibody-Coupled T Cell Receptor (ACTR) T Cell Product (ACTR707 or ACTR087)

Drug: Trastuzumab
monoclonal antibody targeting HER2

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of ACTR T cell product with trastuzumab as assessed by committee review of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs), incidence and severity of adverse events (AEs) and clinically significant abnormalities of laboratory values [ Time Frame: 42 days ]
  2. Determination of recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) regimen [ Time Frame: 42 days ]
    Review of DLTs, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), incidence and severity of AEs and clinically significant abnormalities of laboratory values

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Anti-tumor activity as measured by overall response rate (ORR) per iRECIST [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  2. Anti-tumor activity as measured best overall response (BOR) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  3. Anti-tumor activity as measured by duration of response (DOR) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  4. Anti-tumor activity as measured by progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  5. Anti-tumor activity as measured by overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  6. Assessment of persistence of ACTR as measured by flow cytometry [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  7. Assessment of persistence of ACTR as measured by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  8. Assessment of ACTR phenotype and function as measured by flow cytometry [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  9. Assessment of induction of inflammatory markers and cytokines/chemokines after ACTR T cell product administration [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Levels of inflammatory markers, cytokines/chemokines in blood

  10. Trastuzumab pharmacokinetics (PK) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    trastuzumab serum concentration, Area Under the Curve (AUC), trough levels
