OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of IL13Ralpha2-specific hinge-optimized 4-1BB-co-stimulatory CAR/truncated (Cluster of Differentiation 19) CD19-expressing autologous TN/MEM cells (IL13Ralpha2 CAR T cells).
Patients receive cyclophosphamide intravenously (IV) over 1 hour on days -5 to -4 and fludarabine phosphate IV over 15-30 minutes on days -4 to -1. Patients then receive IL13Ralpha2 CAR T cells IV on day 0. Patients may also receive recombinant interleukin-2 subcutaneously (SC) twice daily (BID) on days 1-7.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 2-3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, then every year for at least 15 years.

- Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days from the day of CAR-transgenic cell infusion ]Safety will be reported as incidence rates for adverse events, serious adverse events, and fatal adverse events for Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0 grade 3 or higher. Adverse events will be tabulated by treatment group and will include the number of patients for whom the event occurred, the rate of occurrence, and the severity and relationship to study drug.
- Dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days from the day of CAR-transgenic cell infusion ]
- Objective response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 120 days ]Will be recorded following the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria.
- Complete response [ Time Frame: At day 60, 120, and every 2-3 months for up to 2 years ]
- Partial response [ Time Frame: At day 60, 120, and every 2-3 months for up to 2 years ]
- Response for in-transit metastasis [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
- Time to disease progression [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: From the date of CAR T cell infusion in the clinical trial until death, whether related to the trial or not, assessed up to 2 years ]
- IL13Ralpha2 CAR T cell persistence [ Time Frame: At days 1, 7, 14, 30, 60, 90, and 120 ]
- IL13Ralpha2 CAR T Cell phenotypic monitoring [ Time Frame: Up 2 years ]
- Impact of IL-2 on systemic persistence of CAR T cells [ Time Frame: Up 2 years ]
- Impact of IL-2 on tumor infiltration of CAR T cells [ Time Frame: Up 2 years ]
- Cytokine release syndrome analysis [ Time Frame: Up 2 years ]Plasma or serum collected from the blood at multiple time points after CAR T cell infusion will be frozen and banked; cytokine levels will be quantified in patients exhibiting any > grade-2 CRS.
- Evaluation of an endogenous T cell anti-tumor response [ Time Frame: Up 2 years ]The biopsies will be analyzed by hematoxylin and eosin staining (H&E), immunohistochemistry (IHC) to quantify the numbers of T lymphocytes. If sufficient quantity of tissue is available, the study investigators will attempt to monitor the phenotype of the TIL obtained from tumor biopsy samples by multicolor flow cytometry (FACS), and other immune monitoring assays.
