Disease: Allogeneic CAR-T for multiple myeloma

Disease info:

Multiple myeloma is a cancer that develops in the bone marrow, the spongy tissue found in the centre of most bones. Multiple myeloma is characterized by abnormalities in plasma cells, a type of white blood cell. These abnormal cells multiply out of control, increasing from about one percent of cells in the bone marrow to the majority of bone marrow cells. The abnormal cells form tumours within the bone, causing bone pain and an increased risk of fractures.

Relapsed Myeloma refers to when a  patient had active treatment, went off treatment and then the disease came back. 

Refractory Myeloma refers to as disease that is progressing despite active treatment.

Multiple myeloma occurs in approximately 4 per 100,000 people per year; there are currently about 100,000 affected individuals in the United States.

Status: Active recruiting


Phase 1 study follows a 3+3 design of dose-escalating cohorts. After a subject enrolls, allogeneic CAR-T cells will be administered as a single dose, following a standard chemotherapy based conditioning regimen. Treated subjects will undergo serial measurements of safety, tolerability and response. Rimiducid may be administered as indicated.
