Brief Summary:

Eligible patients will receive escalating doses of 4G7-CARD T-cells paralleling clinical standard of care with unmanipulated donor lymphocytes. There are 3 intra-patient dose levels planned.

Patients will be followed up regularly during the interventional phase of the study until 12 months post-final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion. Thereafter patients will be followed up annually for years 2 and 3.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
CD19+ Malignancies: Relapse Post-allogeneic Transplant Genetic: Infusion of modified CAR19 T-cells (4G7-CARD T-cells) Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Patients will receive escalating doses of 4G7-CARD T-cells (after pre-conditioning with Fludarabine and Cyclophosphamide), paralleling clinical standard of care with unmanipulated donor lymphocytes. Intra-patient dose escalation will proceed at intervals of not less than 8 weeks, dependent on development of toxicity or evidence of efficacy and confirmation by the Trial Management Group.

Three dose cohorts levels are planned, and dosing will be according to total CD3+ T- cell dose as this correlates with toxicity in the unmanipualated donor lymphocyte setting:

  • Dose Level 1: 1x10^6 CD3+ T-cells/kg (starting dose for all patients)
  • Dose Level 2: 3x10^6 CD3+ T-cells/kg
  • Dose Level 3: 1x10^7 CD3+ T-cells/kg

The inter-patient dosing for the first 3 patients was at least 28 days, following TMG confirmation.

Patients will be followed up regularly during the interventional phase of the study until 12 months post-final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion. During the long term follow up phase of the study (years 2-3 post-final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion) patients will be followed-up annually for overall survival, disease status and safety.

All patients will enter long term follow up until 3 years post-final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)19 Donor Lymphocytes for Relapsed Cluster of Differentiation (CD)19+ Malignancies Following Allogeneic Transplantation (CARD)

Actual Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 4G7-CARD T-cells
All patient will receive modified CAR19 T-cells.
Genetic: Infusion of modified CAR19 T-cells (4G7-CARD T-cells)
The original stem cells donor (or if not available the patient) will undergo unstimulated leucapheresis for generation of the Advanced Therapy Interventional Medicinal Product (ATIMP) 4G7-CARD T-cells. Escalating doses of the ATIMP will then be infused to the patient depending on outcome and any experienced side effects.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Feasibility of generation of 4G7-CARD T-cells using the ProdigyTM system [ Time Frame: Through patient registration and manufacturing period, an average of 18 months from start of trial ]
    The number of ATIMP successfully manufactured would be assessed for all registered patients

  2. Maximum grade for each toxicity type as assessed by CTCAE v4.03, summarized as proportions. [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years post final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion ]
    Toxicity evaluation following 4G7-CARD T-cell administration as evaluated by the occurrence of adverse events per studied dose using CTCAE v4.03, defined as >grade 2 events that are causally related to study treatment or procedure or Serious Adverse Reactions that require withdrawal of the patient from the study; development and severity of graft-versus-host-disease (GvHD) following cell infusion will also be evaluated as a potential toxicity, as well as development and severity of cytokine release syndrome / macrophage activation syndromes assessed by 'University of Pennsylvania' criteria


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of engraftment, expansion and persistence of the 4G7-CARD T-cells as determined by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) or flow cytometry [ Time Frame: Sampling occurs at days 0, 4, 6, 11, 18, plus months 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 and 1 year post final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion ]
    Data for engraftment and expansion would be summarised by mean, median or interquartile ranges and a Kaplan Meier plot for persistence

  2. Assessing the depletion of B cell compartment, as determined by flow cytometry [ Time Frame: Sampling occurs at days 0, 4, 6, 11, 18, plus months 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 and 1 year post final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion ]
    Data would be summarised using means (medians) and as the percentage reduction from baseline

  3. Assessing the timing and magnitude of cytokine release, evaluated using Cytokine bead arrays [ Time Frame: Sampling occurs at days 0, 4, 6, 11, 18, plus 1 month post final 4G7-CARD T-cell infusion ]
    Data on timing (kinetic of change) and magnitude of cytokine levels can be summarised using means (medians) and plots for each patients
