Patients with cutaneous CD30 positive lymphoma will receive systemical and topical treatment with their own genetically modified T cells. Treatment evaluation consists of assessment of safety and preliminary evidence of response.

CD30 Positive Transformed Mycosis Fungoides
Genetic: Genetically modified T cells # 1138
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Prof. Dr. med. Dr. rer. nat Cornelia Mauch, University of Cologne:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of patients experiencing dose limiting toxicities of engineered T cells #1138.
  • Definition of maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of engineered T cells #1138.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Preliminary evidence of response to treatment
    • Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of treated lesion.
    • Partial Response (PR): At least 30% decrease in the sum of two diameters compared to the initiatal diameters of the treated lesion.
    • Progressive Disease (PD): At least 20% increase in the sum of two diameters of treated lesions.
    • Stable Disease (SD): Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD, taking as reference the smallest sum of two diameters while on study.

Estimated Enrollment: 15
