Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1: Safety (Incidence of adverse events defined as dose-limiting toxicities (DLT) [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Incidence of adverse events defined as dose-limiting toxicities (DLT)

  • Phase 2: Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    Objective response rate (complete response [CR] + partial response [PR]) per the revised International Working Group (IWG) Response Criteria for Malignant Lymphoma

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    Incidence of adverse events and clinically significant changes in safety lab values, including subgroup analyses

Estimated Enrollment: 142
Study Start Date: January 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Single Arm
A conditioning chemotherapy regimen of fludarabine and cyclophosphamide will be administered followed by a single infusion of CAR transduced autologous T cells administered intravenously at a target dose of 2 x 10^6 anti-CD19 CAR+ T cells/kg
Biological: KTE-C19


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Key Inclusion Criteria

  1. Histologically confirmed:

    • Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)
    • Primary Mediastinal Large B Cell Lymphoma (PMBCL)
    • Transformation Follicular Lymphoma (TFL)
  2. Chemotherapy-refractory disease, defined as one of more of the following:

    • No response to last line of therapy i. PD as best response to most recent therapy regimen ii. SD as best response to most recent therapy with duration no longer than 6 month from last dose of therapy OR
    • Refractory post-ASCT i. Disease progression or relapsed less than or equal to 12 months of ASCT (must have biopsy proven recurrence in relapsed subjects) ii. If salvage therapy is given post-ASCT, the subject must have had no response to or relapsed after the last line of therapy
  3. Subjects must have received adequate prior therapy including at a minimum:

    • anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody unless investigator determines that tumor is CD20-negative and
    • an anthracycline containing chemotherapy regimen
    • for subjects with transformed FL must have received prior chemotherapy for follicular lymphoma and subsequently have chemorefractory disease after transformation to DLBCL
  4. At least one measurable lesion per revised IWG Response Criteria
  5. Age 18 or older
  6. Eastern cooperative oncology group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1
  7. ANC ≥ 1000/uL
  8. ALC >100/uL
  9. Platelet count ≥ 75,000/uL
  10. Adequate renal, hepatic, pulmonary and cardiac function defined as:

    • Creatinine clearance (as estimated by Cockcroft Gault) > 60 mL/min
    • Serum ALT/AST <2.5 ULN
    • Total bilirubin <1.5 mg/dl, except in subjects with Gilbert's syndrome
    • Cardiac ejection fraction >50%, no evidence of pericardial effusion as determined by an ECHO, and no clinically significant pleural effusion
    • Baseline oxygen saturation >92% on room air
  11. All subjects or legally appointed representatives/caregivers, must personally sign and date the IRB/IEC approved consent form before initiating any study specific procedures or activities.

Key Exclusion Criteria

  1. History of malignancy other than nonmelanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ (e.g. cervix, bladder, breast) or follicular lymphoma unless disease free for at least 3 years
  2. History of allogeneic stem cell transplantation
  3. Prior CAR therapy or other genetically modified T cell therapy
  4. Presence of fungal, bacterial, viral, or other infection that is uncontrolled or requiring IV antimicrobials for management. Simple UTI and uncomplicated bacterial pharyngitis are permitted if responding to active treatment
  5. Known history of infection with HIV or hepatitis B (HBsAG positive) or hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV positive). A history of hepatitis B or hepatitis C is permitted if the viral load is undetectable per quantitative PCR and/or nucleic acid testing
  6. Subjects with detectable cerebrospinal fluid malignant cells, or brain metastases, or with a history of CNS lymphoma, cerebrospinal fluid malignant cells or brain metastases
  7. History or presence of CNS disorder such as seizure disorder, cerebrovascular ischemia/hemorrhage, dementia, cerebellar disease, or any autoimmune disease with CNS involvement
