Disease: B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, ALL, (NCT04150497)

Disease info:

B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is an aggressive (fast-growing) type of leukemia (blood cancer) in which too many B-cell lymphoblasts (immature white blood cells) are found in the bone marrow and blood. It is the most common type of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Also called B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia and precursor B-lymphoblastic leukemia.

Frequency:
The American Cancer Society’s estimates for acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) in the United States for 2020 are: About 6,150 new cases of ALL (3,470 in males and 2,680 in females) About 1,520 deaths from ALL (860 in males and 660 in females)

Description

This is a Phase I, first-in-human, open-label, dose escalation and expansion study of UCART22 administered intravenously to patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerance, clinical activity of UCART22 and to determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD).

UCART is Universal CAR-T cells. That is T Cells that have been taken from healthy donors (not from patients themselves). TALENS are used to disable the TCRαβ gene T cells use to recognize ’self’ to prevent them from attacking the host (graft vs host).

Allogeneic Engineered T-cells Expressing Anti-CD22 Chimeric Antigen Receptor.

Experimental: Dose Escalation

Part 1: Dose Escalation One administration of UCART22 in the dose escalation phase will explore 4 doses of UCART22 and continue until the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) is identified.

Part 2: Dose Expansion One administration of UCART22 at the MTD.
