|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Relapsed/Refractory T-cell Acute Lymphoid Leukaemia||Biological: Cryopreserved BE CAR7 T cells (BE752TBCCLCAR7PBL)||Phase 1|
Who can participate? Patients aged 6 months to 16 years with relapsed/refractory T cell leukaemia ahead of a planned bone marrow transplant
What does the study involve? Patients will undergo careful screening to confirm that this treatment is adequate for them. Chemotherapy will be given prior to BE CAR-7 infusion to improve the ability of T-cells to establish and grow. Patients will then receive a single infusion of the BE CAR-7 cells and will be closely monitored in hospital. Patients are expected to be in hospital for 4-6 weeks for the BE CAR-7 treatment and the transplant will be scheduled 2-4 weeks after the end of BE CAR7 if leukaemia cells are no longer detectable. Patients will be monitored on the study for 1 year after transplant and then long term in routine clinics.
What are the possible benefits and risks of participating? Taking part in the study of testing 'ready-made' CAR T cells could help reduce the amount of disease and get the patient into remission before a bone marrow transplant. Leukaemia is less likely to come back after a bone marrow transplant if levels in the bone marrow are undetectable. The ready-made CAR T cells are being used to try and improve the chances of successful transplantation. Side effects may include low blood cell counts, infections, cytokine storm (severe immune reaction), graft versus host disease (where the donated cells attack the body) and other complications.

Experimental: Single-dose intravenous infusion of a banded dose of CAR7+ T cells/kg BECAR7
Single-dose intravenous infusion (weight-based dosing) of CAR7+ T cells/kg BECAR7 Total duration of treatment: 28 days Follow-up: 12 months Patients will undergo careful screening to confirm that this treatment is adequate for them. Chemotherapy will be given prior to BE CAR-7 infusion. Patients will then receive a single infusion of the BE CAR-7 cells and will be closely monitored in hospital via blood and bone marrow tests for safety and to check the levels of BE CAR-7 and leukaemia cells. Patients are expected to be in hospital for 4-6 weeks for the BE CAR-7 therapy and the transplant will be scheduled 2-4 weeks after the end of BE CAR7 if leukaemia cells are no longer detectable. Patients will be monitored on the study for 1 year every month for the first 3 months and then every 6 months and then long term in routine clinics.
Biological: Cryopreserved BE CAR7 T cells (BE752TBCCLCAR7PBL)
Single-dose intravenous infusion (weight-based dosing) of a banded dose of CAR7+ T cells/kg BECAR7 Total duration of treatment: 28 days Follow-up: 12 months
Other Name: BECAR7
- Frequency and description of adverse events after BE-CAR7 infusion [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Incidence of Grade 3-5 toxicities occurring from infusion up to one year follow-up.
Severe Adverse Reactions of special interest will be CRS, ICANS and GvHD. American Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation grading scales for CRS/ICANS and National Institute of Health criteria for GVHD will be applied. Commo Terminology Criteria nomenclature will be used to grade other adverse events.
- Number of patients achieving disease remission ahead of allo-SCT [ Time Frame: 28 days ]Remission rate will be assessed by bone marrow and CNS evaluation after 28 days. Disease remission is defined as morphological complete remission (CR) or complete remission with incomplete hematologic recovery (CRi) with MRD <10e-3 by flow and/or PCR.
