Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: JWCAR029
The safety and efficacy of JWCAR029 will be evaluated in a standard 3+3 dose escalation approach. 4 CAR T dosage will be tested in this study: 1×10^7, 2.5×10^7, 5×10^7, 1×10^8 CAR+ T cells.
Biological: JWCAR029
Subjects will undergo leukapheresis to isolate peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) for the production of JWCAR029. During JWCAR029 production, subjects will receive a conditioning chemotherapy regimen of cyclophosphamide and fludarabine for the purpose of lymphocytes depletion. After lymphodepletion, subjects will receive one dose treatment with JWCAR029 by intravenous (IV) injection.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment-related adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Physiological parameter

  2. Dose-limiting toxicities of JWCAR029 [ Time Frame: 28 days after JWCAR029 infusion ]
    Physiological parameter

  3. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Lugano criteria

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum concentration (Cmax) of JWCAR029 in the peripheral blood and bone marrow [ Time Frame: 1 year after JWCAR029 infusion ]
    Flow cytometry and qPCR

  2. Time to maximum concentration (Tmax) of JWCAR029 in the peripheral blood and bone marrow [ Time Frame: 1 year after JWCAR029 infusion ]
    Flow cytometry and qPCR

  3. Area-under the concentration-vs-time-curve (AUC) of JWCAR029 in the peripheral blood and bone marrow [ Time Frame: 1 year after JWCAR029 infusion ]
    Flow cytometry and qPCR

  4. Complete response (CR) rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Lugano criteria

  5. Duration of response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Lugano criteria

  6. Progression-free survival (PFS) and PFS ratio [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Lugano criteria

  7. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Physiological parameter

  8. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

    3. Relapsed or refractory B-cell NHL.
    4. PET-positive disease BY Lugano classification
    5. Archived tumor biopsy tissue available from the last relapse and corresponding pathology report available or, if at least one tumor-involved site is deemed accessible at time of screening, willing to undergo pre-treatment biopsy (excisional when possible) for disease confirmation. If a subject has never had a complete response, a sample from the most recent biopsy is acceptable.

    9. Subjects who have received previous CD19-targeted therapy must have CD19-positive lymphoma confirmed on a biopsy since completing the prior CD19-targeted therapy
    10. Subjects must agree to use appropriate contraception.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded from participation in this study:

    1. Subjects with central nervous system (CNS)-only involvement by malignancy (note: subjects with secondary CNS involvement are allowed on study)
    2. History of another primary malignancy that has not been in remission for at least 2 years.
    3. Treatment with alemtuzumab within 6 months of leukapheresis, or treatment with fludarabine or cladribine within 3 months of leukapheresis
    4. Active hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection at the time of screening
    5. Subjects with uncontrolled systemic fungal, bacterial, viral or other infection despite appropriate antibiotics or other treatment at the time of leukapheresis or JWCAR029 administration
    6. Presence of acute or chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)
    7. History of cardiovascular disease
    8. History or presence of clinically relevant CNS pathology such as epilepsy, seizure, paresis, aphasia, stroke, severe brain injuries, dementia, Parkinson's disease, cerebellar disease, organic brain syndrome, or psychosis
    9. Pregnant or nursing women.
    10. Prior CAR T-cell or other genetically-modified T-cell therapy, with the exception of prior JWCAR029 treatment in this protocol for subjects receiving retreatment
