Adoptive Immunotherapy With Activated Marrow Infiltrating Lymphocytes and Cyclophosphamide Graft-Versus-Host Disease Prophylaxis in Patients With Relapse of Hematologic Malignancies After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation


This Phase 1 clinical study is designed to examine the safety and feasibility of using anti-CD3/CD28 activated marrow infiltrating lymphocytes (MILs) as treatment of relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT) for patients with hematologic malignancies with bone marrow involvement of their relapsed disease.

Am I Eligible?

The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may or may not be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional will be required to determine full eligibility.

The following criteria is provided for health care professionals.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age ≥18 years old
  • Bone marrow relapse of a hematologic malignancy ≥6 months after alloHCT using PTCy
  • Donor CD3+ chimerism ≥ 30% measured in peripheral blood or bone marrow
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 2 or Karnofsky performance scale ≥ 70%.
  • Off all immunosuppressive drugs for 2 weeks prior to the PTCy-MILs collection.
  • Expectation of ability to safely undergo salvage treatment appropriate for the patient's malignant disease type as determined by the treating hematologist/ oncologist.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Most recent alloHCT not utilizing PTCy.
  • Active GVHD requiring treatment.
  • Immunosuppression use within 28 days of PTCy-MIL infusion if prior grade II-IV acute GVHD.
  • Creatinine ≥ 2.5, total bilirubin > 3 times the upper limit of normal (ULN), or AST/ALT > 3 times the ULN.
  • HIV-1/2 or HTLV-1/2 positivity.
  • Life expectancy ≤ 90 days even with aggressive treatment, as determined by the treating hematologist/oncologist, which would preclude assessment of toxicity of PTCy-MILs
