Brief Summary:
The study is an early, open, single-centered trial. The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerance of GC022F CAR-T cell immunotherapy in relapsed or refractory B-ALL. The study will include 18 subjects to receive GC022F therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 18 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Study of GC022F CAR-T Cell Immunotherapy for Relapsed or Refractory B- ALL
Actual Study Start Date : October 22, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CAR-T treatment group
The patients will receive one dose of GC022F. GC022F dosage ranges from 6×10^4 to 1.5×10^5 CAR+T/Kg.
Biological: GC022F
GC022F is the CAR-T cell immunotherapy targeted CD19 and CD22. The subjects will receive GC022F as one dose. The dosage ranges from 6×10^4 to 1.5×10^5 CAR+T/Kg.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence and severity of treatment related Adverse Events, CRS and Neurotoxicity (Safety and tolerability) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Adverse events(AEs) will be collected and graded according to ASTCT consensus(for Cytokine Release Syndrome, CRS and Immune Effector Cell-Associated Neurotoxicity Syndrome, ICANS) and CTCAE v5.0(for AE except CRS/ICANS )

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. CAR copies and concentration of GC022F in peripheral blood, bone marrow and CSF (amplification and persistence) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    GC022F CAR copies and cells in peripheral blood, bone marrow and CSF will be measured by qPCR and FCM in 2 years

  2. Overall response rate of patients who received GC022F infusion (efficacy) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Overall response rate will be estimated as the percents of patients who achieved CR or CRi.

  3. Concentraiton of anti-GC022F antibody after infusion (humoral immune response) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    After GC022F infusion, GC022F antibody in peripheral blood will be measured in 2 years
