Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2 study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of autologous CD30.CAR-T in subjects with relapsed or refractory CD30+ classical Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hodgkin Lymphoma, Adult Hodgkin Disease Recurrent Hodgkin Disease Refractory Hodgkin Disease, Pediatric Drug: CD30.CAR-T Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Subjects who meet eligibility criteria will have blood drawn to manufacture the CD30.CAR-T cells in a lab. CD30.CAR-T cells will be infused after the completion of lymphodepleting chemotherapy with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide.

Subjects will be monitored for safety and efficacy throughout the study. Subjects will be followed for survival, withdrawal of consent or study closure, whichever occurs first.

Health Related Quality of Life assessments will be collected for pediatric and adult patients during the study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CD30 positive r/r classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

Patients with relapsed or refractory classical Hodgkin Lymphoma who have failed 3 prior lines of treatment, which may include a prior autologous and/or allogeneic stem cell transplant.

Patients will be treated with autologous CD30.CAR-T cells.

Drug: CD30.CAR-T
autologous CD30.CAR-T cells infused on Day 0 after the completion of lymphodepleting chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To assess the anti-tumor effect of autologous CD30.CAR-T using objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by an Independent Radiology Review Committee (IRRC) per the Revised Criteria for Response Assessment: The Lugano Classification (Cheson, 2014) [ Time Frame: As early as 6 weeks after CD30.CAR-T treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability of CD30.CART cells [ Time Frame: Minimum 24 months post-CD30.CAR-T infusion ]
    Number of patients with treatment related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v5.0

  2. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Minimum 24 months post-CD30.CAR-T infusion ]

  3. Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: Minimum 24 months post-CD30.CAR-T infusion ]

  4. Objective Response Rate as assessed by the Investigator [ Time Frame: Minimum 24 months post-CD30.CAR-T infusion ]
    ORR by Investigator

  5. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Minimum 24 months post-CD30.CAR-T infusion ]

  6. Health Related quality of life (HRQoL) questionnaire [ Time Frame: Minimum 24 months post-CD30.CAR-T infusion ]
