Study of CD30 CAR for Relapsed/Refractory CD30+ HL and CD30+ NHL

NCT02690545

Description:

The body has different ways of fighting infection and disease. No single way seems perfect for fighting cancer. This research study combines two different ways of fighting disease: antibodies and T cells. Antibodies are proteins that protect the body from disease caused by bacteria or toxic substances. Antibodies work by binding those bacteria or substances, which stops them from growing and causing bad effects. T cells, also called T lymphocytes, are special infection-fighting blood cells that can kill other cells, including tumor cells or cells that are infected. Both antibodies and T cells have been used to treat patients with cancers. They both have shown promise, but neither alone has been sufficient to cure most patients. This study is designed to combine both T cells and antibodies to create a more effective treatment called autologous T lymphocyte chimeric antigen receptor cells targeted against the CD30 antigen (ATLCAR.CD30) administration. In previous studies, it has been shown that a new gene can be put into T cells that will increase their ability to recognize and kill cancer cells. The new gene that is put in the T cells in this study makes an antibody called anti-CD30. This antibody sticks to lymphoma cells because of a substance on the outside of the cells called CD30. Anti-CD30 antibodies have been used to treat people with lymphoma, but have not been strong enough to cure most patients. For this study, the anti-CD30 antibody has been changed so that instead of floating free in the blood it is now joined to the T cells. When an antibody is joined to a T cell in this way it is called a chimeric receptor. These CD30 chimeric (combination) receptor-activated T cells seem to kill some of the tumor, but they do not last very long in the body and so their chances of fighting the cancer are unknown. The purpose of this research study is to establish a safe dose of ATLCAR.CD30 cells to infuse after lymphodepleting chemotherapy and to estimate the number patients whose cancer does not progress for two years after ATLCAR.CD30 administration. This study will also look at other effects of ATLCAR.CD30 cells, including their effect on the patient's cancer.

Both antibodies and T cells have been used to treat patients with cancers. They both have shown promise, but neither alone has been sufficient to cure most patients. This study is designed to combine both T cells and antibodies to create a more effective treatment called autologous T lymphocyte chimeric antigen receptor cells targeted against the CD30 antigen (ATLCAR.CD30) administration. In previous studies, it has been shown that a new gene can be put into T cells that will increase their ability to recognize and kill cancer cells. The new gene that is put in the T cells in this study makes an antibody called anti-CD30. This antibody sticks to lymphoma cells because of a substance on the outside of the cells called CD30.

      Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE, version 4.0) and Cytokine Release Syndrome
      (CRS) toxicity will be graded according to the CRS Management Guidelines and CRS Toxicity
      Grading Scale

      complete response at time of cell infusion) or progression (in patients without complete
      response at time of cell infusion), or death as a result of any cause per the Lugano
      classification

      Overall survival will be measured from the date of administration of CAR.CD30 transduced ATL
      to date of death and will be measured separately in subjects receiving bendamustine alone for
      lymphodepletion and those receiving a combination of bendamustine and fludarabine for
      lymphodepletion.

      Progression free survival is defined from day of ATLCAR.CD30 infusion to relapse (in patients

      cytometry in peripheral blood samples and will be measured separately in subjects receiving
      bendamustine alone for lymphodepletion and those receiving a combination of bendamustine and
      fludarabine for lymphodepletion.

      OUTLINE

      Cell Procurement

      Up to 100 mL per collection (up to 3 collections) of peripheral blood will be obtained from
      patients for cell procurement. In patients with low (CD3 count as assayed by flow cytometry
      less than 200/μl) T-cell count in the peripheral blood, a leukopheresis may be performed to
      isolate sufficient T cells. The parameters for pheresis will be 2 blood volumes.

      ATLCAR.CD30 Cells Administration

      ATLCAR.CD30 cells will be administered as described below 1-14 days (preferably 1-2 days)
      after lymphodepletion with bendamustine and fludarabine. ATLCAR.CD30 cells will be given by a
      licensed provider (oncology nurse or physician) via intravenous injection over 1-10 minutes
      through either a peripheral or a central line. The expected volume will be 1-50cc. Patients
      with a partial response or stable disease at 6 weeks may receive a second infusion of
      ATLCAR.CD30 if cells are available. Note: Lymphodepletion with bendamustine and fludarabine
      will occur for three consecutive days and may be given prior to a second infusion of cells
      (if applicable).

      Duration of Therapy

      Therapy in Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center (LCCC) 1532 involves 1-2 infusions of
      ATLCAR.CD30 cells. Treatment with one infusion will be administered unless:

        -  Patient decides to withdraw from study treatment, OR

        -  General or specific changes in the patient's condition render the patient unacceptable
           for further treatment in the judgment of the investigator.

      Duration of Follow-up

      Patients will be followed for up to 15 years for Replication Competent Retrovirus (RCR)
      evaluation or until death, whichever occurs first. Patients removed from study for
      unacceptable adverse events will be followed until resolution or stabilization of the adverse
      event.

NameTypeDescriptionInterventions
ATLCAR.CD30 cellsExperimentalPhase Ib: In adults, and separately, in children, two doses will be investigated 1x10^8 cells/m2 and 2x10^8 cells/m^2. The study team will run two independent dose-escalation sequences, one for adults and another one for children. The study team plans to use the 3+3 design and start with a low dose of 1x10^8 cells/m2. If there are no DLT in first 3 patients, the study team will go up to the dose of 2 x 10^8 cells/m2. If there is toxicity in 1/3 patients in the initial cohort, the study team would expand to enroll up to 6 patients. If there are dose limiting toxicities (DLT) at the dose of 2 x 10^8 cells/m^2, the study team will initially decrease the dose to an intermediate dose of 1.5 x 10^8 cells/m^. Phase II: The study team planning to enroll 31 patients to contribute data. Sequential boundary will be used to monitor DLT rate.

        Maximum Serum Creatinine (mg/dL) Age (years) Male Female 3 to <6 ≤0.8 ≤0.8 6 to <10 ≤1.0
        ≤1.0 10 to <13 ≤1.2 ≤1.2 13 to <16 ≤1.5 ≤1.4 ≥16 and <18 ≤1.7 ≤1.4

        Negative serum pregnancy test within 72 hours prior to lymphodepletion or documentation
        that the subject is post-menopausal. Post-menopausal status must be confirmed with
        documentation of absence of menses for > 1 year or documentation of surgical menopause
        involving bilateral oophorectomy.

        Subject cannot be on strong inhibitors of CYP1A2 (e.g., fluvoxamine, ciprofloxacin) as
        these may increase plasma concentrations of bendamustine, and decrease plasma
        concentrations of its metabolites. See http://medicine.iupui.edu/clinpharm/ddis/ for an
        updated list of strong inhibitors of CYP1A2. (This applies to subjects who receive
        bendamustine for lymphodepletion (required) up through 72 hours after the last dose of
        bendamustine)

        Subject is a good candidate for treatment with ATLCAR.CD30 per the investigator's
        discretion.

        Eligibility Criteria Prior to Second Infusion (Optional)

        No evidence of uncontrolled infection or sepsis.

        Subject must not have undergone bridging chemotherapy (or other anti-cancer therapies,
        which are not mandated by the protocol) prior to the second infusion.
