Study Design

Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
This is a phase 1 dose escalation study designed to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of CAR modified T cells in patients with relapsed and refractory aggressive B-NHL. Three dose levels (5 x 106 19-28z T cells/kg, 1 x 107 19-28z T cells/kg, and 2 x 107 19-28z T cells/kg) are considered for the MTD.
19-28z t cells
autologous stem cell transplantation

Primary Outcomes

maximum tolerated dose (MTD)
time frame: 2 years
time frame: 2 years

Secondary Outcomes

2 year progression-free (PFS)
time frame: 2 years
overall survival (os)
time frame: 2 years

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Transplant eligible patients will be eligible if criteria met per below. Inclusion Criteria: - Patients ≥ 18 years of age with aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes including, relapsed or refractory diffused large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), and transformed follicular lymphoma meeting at least one of the following criteria: - Bone marrow involvement at the time of relapse or refractory disease and not appropriate for allogeneic transplantation. - PET positive disease outside of one radiation port unless single-port disease treated with prior radiotherapy within the port, following > or = to 2 cycles of salvage chemotherapy, still achieving chemosensitive status 1999 IWG criteria (section 12.2 and 12.383). - Creatinine ≤ 1.5 mg/100 ml (or measured 24 hour creatinine clearance of ≥ 50 cc/min) - Bilirubin <2.0 mg/100 ml, AST and ALT <3x the upper-limit of normal, PT and PTT < 2x normal outside the setting of stable chronic anticoagulation therapy, - Adequate cardiac function (LVEF>40%) as assessed by ECHO or MUGA scan performed within 1 month of treatment. - Adequate pulmonary function as assessed by DLCO of > or = to 45% adjusted for hemoglobin. - Life expectancy of > 3 months. Exclusion Criteria: - Karnofsky performance status ≤ 70 (see appendix VI). - Patients with other aggressive B-cell malignancies including, but not limited to: Burkitt lymphoma, transformed CLL/SLL and transformed marginal zone lymphoma that are not included in 6.1 inclusion criteria. - Patients previously treated with autologous or allogeneic bone marrow or stem cell transplantation are ineligible. - Other past or current malignancy unless in the opinion of the investigator it does not contraindicate participation in the study. - Uncontrolled bacterial, viral or fungal infection. - Patients with HIV, active hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection.
