Study Design

Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose supportive care
mage-a4 tcr gene-modified t cells
The study consists of a 2-dose escalation scheme, and the patient receives twice in each dose. The starting dose is 1-3 x 10^9 cells of each TCR gene-modified cells and the second one is 3-8 x 10^9 cells of each TCR gene-modified cells. Two weeks after the first infusion the patient receives the same dose again, followed by infusions of IL-2 for 5 days. Thereafter, the patient receives peptide vaccinations on days 21 and 28.

Primary Outcomes

Objective response rate
time frame: Up to 12 months
