Condition acute leukemia
Treatments genetically modified dcs plus cik cells, donor leukocyte infusions (dli)
Phase phase 1/phase 2
Sponsor Affiliated Hospital to Academy of Military Medical Sciences
Start date September 2013
End date September 2016
Trial size 25 participants
Trial identifier NCT01956630, 307-CTC-DC/CIK-Leukemia


Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation(Allo-HSCT) is currently an effective treatment for Acute leukemia (AL). Relapse after transplantation, being a main obstacle for patient survival, is so far treated by second transplantation and donor leukocyte infusion (DLI), which seems to have high risk and low survival. Need for a new medication on relapse is urgent. The immunotherapy using Dendritic cells (DCs) combined with cytokine induced killer (CIK) cells holds promise for the adjuvant treatment of AL to eradicate or control residual disease. This randomized study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility and effective of genetically modified DCs combining to CIK immunotherapy in relapse AL after allo-HSCT.

Primary purpose treatment
Patients received four subcutaneous injections of 2-5×10e7 cells of DCs at the groin, axilla, and neck respectively on days 7, 9, 11, and 13 and i.v. infusions of 2-15×10e9 CIK on days 11 and 13 per cycle. The cycle was repeated until Wilms' tumor 1(WT1) turned negative by polymerase chain reaction(PCR) or graft-versus-host disease(GVHD) appeared.

(Active Comparator)
Patients received DLI at a dose of 2×10e7/kg, 5×10e7/kg and 1×10e8/kg cluster of differentiation 3(CD3)+ cells at months 1, 2 and 3 respectively unless GVHD appeared.
