Trials 26-50 of 138

  • Genetically Engineered Cells (ATLCAR.CD30 T Cells) for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory CD30 Positive Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma

    This phase II trial studies how well genetically engineered cells (ATLCAR.CD30 T cells) work in treating patients with CD30 positive peripheral T cell lymphoma that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). T cells are special types of blood cells. They can find and destroy other cells that may cause disease or cancer. However, sometimes cancer cells can hide from T cells and grow into tumors. Genes make up the chemical structure carrying information that may determine human characteristics (i.e., eye color, height and sex). In this study, a gene that makes an antibody called anti-CD30 is put inside T cells, which may make T cells better at recognizing and destroying CD30 positive peripheral T cell lymphoma cancer cells.

  • Lymphodepletion with Adoptive Cell Therapy and High-Dose IL-2 for the Treatment of Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma in Young Adult Patients

    This phase I trial studies the side effects of adoptively transferred tumor-specific T cells and high-dose aldesleukin (IL-2) and to see how well they work in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). Fludarabine and cyclophosphamide are two types of chemotherapy drugs used in lymphodepletion. The purpose of lymphodepletion in this study is to temporarily reduce the number of normal lymphocytes circulating in the body before tumor infiltrating lymphocytes are infused. This is so that there will be more “space” for the lymphocytes that will be infused in the veins.Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes involve the use of special immune cells called T-cells. A T-cell is a type of lymphocyte, or white blood cell. Lymphocytes protect the body from viral infections, help other cells fight bacterial and fungal infections, produce antibodies, fight cancers, and coordinate the activities of other cells in the immune system. These special immune T-cells are taken from a sample of tumor tissue that is surgically removed, then multiplied in a laboratory, and infused back into the patient. IL-2 may help the body's response to treatment on the immune system.

  • Optimizing PTCy Dose and Timing

    Background: Stem cell or bone marrow transplants can cure or control blood cancers. Sometimes the donor cells see the recipient s body as foreign. This can cause complications. A high dose of the drug cyclophosphamide (PTCy) can help reduce these risks. Researchers want to see if a lower dose of PTCy can have the same benefits. Objective: To see if a lower dose of PTCy will help people with blood cancers have a more successful transplant and fewer side effects. Eligibility: People ages 15-65 with leukemia, lymphoma, or multiple myeloma that is not curable with standard therapy and is at high risk of returning without transplant, and their healthy adult relatives Design: Transplant participants will be screened with: Blood, urine, breathing, and heart tests Scans Chest x-ray Bone marrow samples: A needle inserted into the participant s pelvis will remove marrow and a bone fragment. Transplant recipients will stay at the hospital and be prepped with chemotherapy over 6 days for the transplant. They will get stem cells through a catheter in the chest or neck. They will get the cyclophosphamide chemotherapy. They will stay in the hospital about 4 more weeks. They will have blood transfusions. They will have frequent blood tests and 2 bone marrow samples within 1 year after the transplant. Donor participants will be screened with: Blood, urine, and heart tests Chest x-ray Scans Donor participants will have bone marrow taken from their pelvis or stem cells taken from their blood. For the blood donation, blood will be taken from a vein in one arm, move through a machine to remove white blood cells, and be returned through a vein in the other arm. Participation will last up to 5 years....

  • Graft Versus Host Disease-Reduction Strategies for Donor Blood Stem Cell Transplant Patients with Acute Leukemia

    This phase II trial compares four strategies for the reduction of graft versus host disease in patients with acute leukemia in remission. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. It may also stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The donated stem cells may also replace the patient’s immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells.

  • T-cells Expressing an Anti-SLAMF7 CAR for Treating Multiple Myeloma

    Background: Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer that is usually incurable. T cells are part of the immune system. Researchers think changing a person s T cells to recognize their cancer could help the person s body kill tumor cells. This is a new approach that uses a patient s own cells to target multiple myeloma. Objective: To see if giving anti-SLAM7 CAR T cells with a stop switch to people with multiple myeloma is safe andto see if adding a gene to stop T-cell activity can limit toxicity of this therapy. Eligibility: People ages 18-73 with multiple myeloma for which prior standard treatment has not worked Design: Participants will be screened with: - Medical history - Physical exam - Blood, urine, and heart tests - Bone marrow samples: A needle inserted into the participant s bone will remove marrow. - Imaging scans: Participants will lie in a machine that takes pictures of the body. Participants will have apheresis. They will receive a catheter or central line: A plastic tube will be inserted into a chest or arm vein. Blood will be removed and the T cells separated. The rest of the blood will be returned to the participant. The T cells will be manipulated in the lab. Participants will get chemotherapy through the central line for 3 days. Participants will receive the manipulated T cells through the central line. They will stay in the hospital at least 9 days. Participants will have follow-up visits 2 weeks then 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12 months after the infusion. They will then have visits every 6 months for 3 years. Then they will be contacted once per year for 15 years. All visits will include blood tests, and 3 visits will include bone marrow biopsies....

  • Cell Therapy for the Treatment of Locally Advanced, Metastatic, or Recurrent Solid Cancers

    This phase II trial studies how well cell therapy (with tumor infiltrating lymphocytes) works for the treatment of solid cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced), has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic), or has come back (recurrent). This trial involves taking cells called lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) from patients' tumors, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, and then giving the cells back to the patient. These cells are called tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and the therapy is called cell therapy. Giving chemotherapy drugs, such as cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, before treating with these cells may temporarily suppress the immune system to improve the chances that the tumor fighting cells will be able to survive in the body. Giving aldesleukin after the cell administration may help the tumor fighting cells stay alive longer. Giving tumor fighting cells (tumor infiltrating lymphocytes) followed by aldesleukin may cause the cancer to shrink.

  • Valproic Acid Expanded Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells in Treating Adult Patients with Hematological Malignancies Undergoing Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    This phase I trial studies the effects of valproic acid expanded umbilical cord blood stem cells in treating adult patients with hematological malignancies undergoing donor stem cell transplant. Expanding or growing umbilical cord blood stem cells in a laboratory using valproic acid may lead to faster white blood cell count recovery, lower the risk of infections, and improve transplant results compared to umbilical cord blood stem cells that have not been expanded.

  • PSCA-CAR T Cells in Treating Patients with PSCA+ Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer

    This phase I trial studies side effects and best dose of PSCA-chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells in treating patients with prostate stem cell antigen positive (PSCA+) castration resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). PSCA-CAR T cells are immune cells that have been engineered in the laboratory to kill tumor cells. This is done by using a virus to insert a piece of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) into the immune cells that allows them to recognize prostate tumor cells. It is not yet known how well PSCA-CAR T cells works in killing tumor cells in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer.

  • Stem Cell Transplant with Chemotherapy and Selected Use of Blinatumomab in Treating Patients with Blood Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well transplanting blood cells with chemotherapy work in treating patients with a high risk blood cancer that is in remission. Giving chemotherapy before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells and cancer cells. It may also help stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells (called graft versus host disease). Giving filgrastim may stop this from happening. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as blinatumomab, may induce changes in the body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Giving stem cells with chemotherapy and blinatumomab may work better in treating patients with blood cancer.

  • CART123 Cells in Treating Patients with Refractory or Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    This phase I trial studies the side effects of chimeric antigen receptor T-123 (CART123) cells in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia that does not respond to treatment (refractory) or that has come back after previous treatment (relapsed). This research study takes some of the patient's white blood cells (T-cells) through a process called apheresis, and modifies them so that they can identify and possibly kill the cancerous cells. The modification is a genetic change, or gene transfer, to the normal T-cells. These modified cells are called CART123 cells and after they are modified they are given back to the patient through the vein. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine and cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy may help CART123 cells grow and survive in patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

  • Modified Immune Cells (Autologous iC9.GD2.CAR.IL-15 T cells) for Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory High Risk Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of modified immune cells (autologous iC9.GD2.CAR.IL-15 T cells) for treating patients with high risk neuroblastoma that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory), or ganglioneuroblastoma. Antibodies and T cells are two different ways the body fights disease. When T cells have part of an antibody attached to them they are better at recognizing and killing tumor cells. The treatment that is being research on this trial, autologous iC9.GD2.CAR.IL-15 T cells, combines T cells and antibodies in order to create a more effective treatment. An antibody called anti-GD2 joins to T cells in the blood and can detect and stick to neuroblastoma cells because they have a substance on the outside of them called GD2. The IL-15 gene, which cells use to communicate with one another, is added so that the T cells can attack tumor cells more effectively. The iC9 gene is added as an "off-switch" so that it can stop the T cells from working if serious side effects are experienced. This study is being done to see if giving autologous iC9.GD2.CAR.IL-15 T cells is safe, tolerable, and helpful in treating neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma.

  • Donor T Cell Depletion in Preventing Graft Versus Host Disease in Patients with Blood Cancer Undergoing a Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    This phase II trial studies donor T cell depletion in preventing graft versus host disease (GVHD) in patients with blood cancer undergoing a donor stem cell transplant. Donor stem cell transplants, especially in the mismatched donor setting, are associated with increased risk for GVHD, a condition where the transplanted donor white blood cells attack your body’s normal tissues. Using a cell separation device may remove a subset of white blood cells (called alpha / beta T cells) from the donor product before the product is transplanted. This study is being done to assess whether this manipulation (called selective T cell depletion) will reduce the risk of GVHD and improve transplant outcome.

  • Autologous CAR138 T-cells in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of autologous chimeric antigen receptor targeting CD138 antigen (CAR138) T cells in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back or does not respond to treatment. CAR138 T cells combines antibodies and T cells. Antibodies are proteins that protect the body from disease caused by bacteria or toxic substances and by stopping them from growing. T cells are special infection fighting blood cells that can kill other cells, including cancer cells or cells that are infected.

  • 211At-BC8-B10 followed by Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, or Myelodysplastic Syndrome

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of a radioactive agent linked to an antibody (211At-BC8-B10) followed by donor stem cell transplant in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia, or acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or myelodysplastic syndrome that has come back or isn't responding to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as 211At-BC8-B10, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Giving chemotherapy and total body irradiation before a stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient, they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can attack the body's normal cells, called graft versus host disease. Giving cyclophosphamide, mycophenolate mofetil, and sirolimus after a transplant may stop this from happening.

  • Alpha Beta T-cells and CD19 B-cells Depleted Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients with Non-Malignant Blood and Immune Disorders

    This phase II trial studies how well alpha beta T-cells and CD19 B-cells depleted stem cell transplant works in treating patients with blood and immune disorders. Donor stem cell transplants contain kinds of white blood cells called T-cells and B-cells along with all the blood-forming cells that make up a healthy immune system. Sometimes donor stem cells are referred to as the "graft" and the patient receiving the "graft" is called the "host." Graft versus host disease (GVHD) and posttransplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) are side effects that can occur after transplantation. Removing alpha-beta T cells and CD19 B-cells from donor cells may help diminish these complications.

  • Donor Stem Cell Transplant using Alpha / Beta+ T-Cell Depletion in Treating Patients with Hematologic Malignancies

    This phase II trial studies the side effects of donor stem cell transplant using allogeneic TCR alpha / beta-positive T-lymphocyte-depleted peripheral blood stem cells (alpha / beta positive [+] T-cell depletion) in treating patients with hematologic malignancies. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The donated stem cells may also replace the patient’s immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells called graft-versus-host disease. Removing the T cells from the donor cells before the transplant may stop this from happening.

  • MOv19-BBz CAR T Cells with or without Cyclophosphamide and Fludarabine in Treating Patients with Recurrent High Grade Serous Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of MOv19-BBz CAR T cells and how well they work with or without cyclophosphamide and fludarabine in treating patients with high grade serous ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has come back (recurrent). MOv19-BBz CAR T cells are a type of T cell (white blood cell) that are modified by introducing a receptor (chimeric antigen receptor [CAR]) that recognizes the folate receptor alpha protein so that they can identify and possibly kill cancer cells expressing folate receptor alpha. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving cyclophosphamide and fludarabine before MOv19-BBz CAR T cells may help them grow and survive in the body.

  • Alpha / Beta T Cell Depleted Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients with Fanconi Anemia

    This phase II trial studies how well alpha / beta T cell depleted stem cell transplant works in treating patients with Fanconi Anemia. Fanconi anemia is an inherited disorder that causes the bone marrow to stop making enough new blood cells (bone marrow failure) or to make abnormal cells (myelodysplastic syndrome or acute leukemia) and the only proven cure is a stem cell transplant. A common risk with a stem cell transplant is graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) which occurs when the donor cells (the graft) see the patient’s body (the host) as foreign and attack it. A method to decrease the risk of GVHD, is to remove most of the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells, from the donor cell product. There has been a new machine developed which better selects the types of white blood cells to remove from the donor. This type of processing is called T cell receptor (TCR) alpha / beta T cell depletion. The purpose of this study is to learn if removing the donor T cells from the donor product using this new method will be a better way to reduce the risk of GVHD. The benefit of removing these cells with this new method is that they will prevent GVHD without requiring drugs to suppress the immune system. Potentially, the immune system will recover from the transplant faster, which in turn will also lessen the risk of severe infections.

  • SJCAR19 and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Younger Patients with CD19 Positive Relapsed or Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of autologous anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor T-cells SJCAR19 (SJCAR19) and to see how well it works when given together with combination chemotherapy in treating younger patients with CD19 positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). SJCAR19 is an experimental therapy that takes peripheral (circulating) blood cells, and engineers them to make them more effectively kill cancer cells. SJCAR19 is created in the lab by genetically modifying T cells in such a way that allows the T cells to recognize cancer cells and attack them like an antibody would. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine phosphate and cyclophosphamide work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving SJCAR19 with combination chemotherapy may work better in treating younger patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
