Clinical Trials Using BCMA-specific CAR-expressing T Lymphocytes BB2121

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying BCMA-specific CAR-expressing T Lymphocytes BB2121. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 1-4 of 4
  • Efficacy and Safety Study of bb2121 Versus Standard Regimens in Subjects With Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma (RRMM)

    This is a multicenter, randomized, open-label, Phase 3 study comparing the efficacy and safety of bb2121 versus standard regimens in subjects with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). The study is anticipated to randomize approximately 381 subjects with RRMM. Approximately 254 subjects will be randomized to Treatment Arm A and approximately 127 subjects will be randomized to Treatment Arm B.

  • An Efficacy and Safety Study of bb2121 in Subjects With Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma and in Subjects With High-Risk Multiple Myeloma

    This study is a multi-cohort, open-label, multicenter Phase 2 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bb2121 in subjects with relapsed and refractory MM (Cohort 1), in subjects with MM having progressed within one 18 months of initial treatment including autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) (Cohort 2a), and without ASCT (Cohort 2b) or, in subjects with inadequate response post ASCT during initial treatment (Cohort 2c) Approximately 181 subjects will be enrolled into one of two cohorts. Cohort 1 will enroll approximately 73 RRMM subjects with ≥ 3 prior anti-myeloma treatment regimens. Cohort 2a will enroll approximately 39 MM subjects, with 1 prior anti-myeloma therapy including ASCT and with early relapse. Cohort 2b will enroll approximately 39 MM subjects with 1 prior anti-myeloma therapy not including ASCT and with early relapse. Cohort 2c will enroll approximately 30 MM subjects with inadequate response to ASCT during their initial anti-myeloma therapy. The cohorts will start in parallel and independently.

  • A Study to Evaluate the Safety of bb2121 in Subjects With High Risk, Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma (NDMM)

    This is a multicenter, open-label, phase 1, single arm study intended to determine the optimal target dose and safety of bb2121 in subjects with HR (R-ISS Stage III per IMWG criteria) NDMM. Subjects should have received 3 Cycles of standard induction therapy prior to undergoing leukapheresis procedure to collect autologous mononuclear cells for manufacture of the drug product (bb2121). Following manufacture of the drug product, subjects will receive fourth cycle of induction therapy followed by lymphodepleting therapy with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide prior to bb2121 infusion. Maintenance therapy is recommended for all subjects who have received bb2121 infusion and should be initiated upon adequate bone marrow recovery or from 90-day post-bb2121 infusion, whichever is later.

  • T Cells Expressing a Novel Fully-Human Anti-BCMA CAR for Treating Multiple Myeloma

    Background: Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the blood plasma cells. It usually becomes resistant to standard treatments. Researchers have developed a procedure called gene therapy. It uses a person s own T cells, which are part of the immune system. The cells are changed in a lab and then returned to the person. Researchers hope the changed T cells will be better at recognizing and killing tumor cells. Objective: To test the safety of giving changed T cells to people with multiple myeloma. Eligibility: Adults ages 18-73 who have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma that has not been controlled with standard therapies. Design: Participants will be screened with: Medical history Physical exam Blood tests Heart function tests Bone marrow sample taken by needle in a hip bone Scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. They may have a brain scan. Pregnancy test Participants will have apheresis. Blood will be removed through an arm vein. The blood will be separated and T cells removed. The rest of the blood will be returned through a vein in the other arm. Participants will have a central line placed in a large vein in the arm or chest. Participants will get 2 chemotherapy drugs by the central line over 3 days. Two days later, participants will get the changed T cells by the central line. They will stay in the hospital at least 9 days. Participants must stay near the hospital for 2 weeks. Participants will have 8 follow-up visits over the next year for blood and urine tests. They may have scans. Participants blood will be collected regularly over the next several years. ...
