Brief Summary:
A phase 1b, open label, multi-center, Clinical Study of Chimeric Antigen Receptor T Cells targeting BCMA in patients with relapsed and or refractory multiple myeloma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Biological: CT053 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is an open label, multi-center, phase 1b clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of autologous chimeric antigen receptor-B-cell maturation antigen (CAR-BCMA T cell; CT053) in patients with relapsed and or refractory multiple myeloma.

Part A of the study will be Dose Escalation followed by Part B, an expansion cohort. Following consent, enrolled subjects will undergo a leukapheresis procedure to collect autologous mononuclear cells for manufacture of investigational drug product (CT053). Following manufacture of the drug product, subjects will receive lymphodepletion prior to CT053 infusion. All subjects who complete the study, as well as those who withdraw from the study after receiving CT053 for reasons other than death or meeting the early termination criteria, will be asked to continue to undergo long-term follow-up in a companion study.
