Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1/2a, nonrandomized, open-label, parallel assignment, single-dose, dose-escalation, and dose-expansion study to evaluate the safety and clinical activity of PBCAR20A in adult subjects with r/r B-cell NHL (Cohort A) or r/r CLL/SLL (Cohort B).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Relapsed Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia in Relapse Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin Leukemia, Lymphocytic, Chronic B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia B-cell Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma Genetic: PBCAR20A Drug: Fludarabine Drug: Cyclophosphamide Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a multicenter, nonrandomized, open-label, parallel assignment, single-dose, dose-escalation, and dose-expansion study to evaluate safety, tolerability, clinical activity, and find an appropriate dose to optimize safety and efficacy of PBCAR20A in subjects with relapsed/refractory (r/r) CD20+ Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) or r/r Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (SLL). Before initiating PBCAR20A, therapy, subjects will be administered lymphodepletion chemotherapy composed of fludarabine and cyclophosphamide. At Day 0 of the Treatment Period, subjects will receive a single intravenous (IV) infusion of PBCAR20A. All subjects are monitored during the treatment period through Day 28. All subjects who receive a dose of PBCAR20A will be followed in a separate long-term follow-up (LTFU) study for 15 years after exiting this study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 17 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Phase 1: In each cohort, r/r CD20+ B-cell NHL (Cohort A) or r/r CLL/SLL (Cohort B), 3 escalating dose groups will be enrolled and treated sequentially, with the possibility of a single de-escalation. Within each dose group, at least 3 and at most 6 study participants will be treated with a single dose of PBCAR20A using a standard 3 + 3 design. The starting dose of PBCAR20A will be 1 × 10^6 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells/kg body weight. Subsequent dose groups will be treated with escalating doses to a maximum dose of 480 × 10^6 CAR T cells (flat dose). In the absence of dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) (as described in Section 3.8 of the protocol), the dose will be increased using a fixed-dose scheme.

Phase 2: Study PBCAR20A-01 did not proceed into Phase 2.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dose Level 1 of PBCAR20A CAR T cells

1 x 10^6 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells per kg body weight.

In this study, PBCAR20A, allogeneic anti-cluster of differentiation (CD20) CAR T Cells, is used to treat patients with relapsed or refractory (r/r) CD20+ Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) or r/r Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (SLL).

Route of Administration: Intravenous infusion (IV)

Lymphodepletion Conditioning: Lymphodepletion will be conducted several days prior to PBCAR20A infusion. A combination of fludarabine and cyclophosphamide will be used for lymphodepletion.

Genetic: PBCAR20A
Single dose of Allogeneic Anti-CD20 CAR T cells will be infused, and a classic "3+3" dose escalation will be applied.
Other Name: Allogeneic Anti-CD20 CAR T cells

Drug: Fludarabine
Fludarabine is used for lymphodepletion (30 mg/m^2/day, Days -5 to -3).

Drug: Cyclophosphamide
Cyclophosphamide is used for lymphodepletion (500 mg/m^2/day, Days -5 to -3).

Experimental: Dose Level 2 of PBCAR20A CAR T cells
240 x 10^6 CAR T cells (flat dose)
Genetic: PBCAR20A
Single dose of Allogeneic Anti-CD20 CAR T cells will be infused, and a classic "3+3" dose escalation will be applied.
Other Name: Allogeneic Anti-CD20 CAR T cells

Drug: Fludarabine
Fludarabine is used for lymphodepletion (30 mg/m^2/day, Days -5 to -3).

Drug: Cyclophosphamide
Cyclophosphamide is used for lymphodepletion (500 mg/m^2/day, Days -5 to -3).

Experimental: Dose Level 3 of PBCAR20A CAR T cells
480 x 10^6 CAR T cells (flat dose)
Genetic: PBCAR20A
Single dose of Allogeneic Anti-CD20 CAR T cells will be infused, and a classic "3+3" dose escalation will be applied.
Other Name: Allogeneic Anti-CD20 CAR T cells

Drug: Fludarabine
Fludarabine is used for lymphodepletion (30 mg/m^2/day, Days -5 to -3).

Drug: Cyclophosphamide
Cyclophosphamide is used for lymphodepletion (500 mg/m^2/day, Days -5 to -3).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Day 28 ]
    To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), which is defined as the dose level at which fewer than 33% of patients experience a dose limiting toxicity (DLT) using a 3+3 strategy.

  2. Number of Participants with Dose Limiting Toxicity(ies) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    To assess adverse events as dose limiting toxicities as defined by the protocol and CTCAE v5.0.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate of Patients [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    To assess clinical activity as response in B-ALL by the NCCN Guidelines on ALL (NCCN, 2017) and in NHL by the revised Lugano Classification (Cheson et al, 2016), both reported as objective response rate.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Area Under the Curve [AUC] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    To evaluate Area Under the Curve [AUC] of PBCAR20A in patients tested.
