  Purpose

The primary goal of this study is to determine the feasibility and safety of giving two doses of denileukin diftitox (DD) at days 0 and 21 post autologous stem cell transplantation in a dose escalation fashion. Secondary goals include evaluating the the effect of DD on the number and percentage of T-regs in the peripheral blood post transplant at each dose level, the effect of DD on T cell (CD4/CD8) reconstitution post transplant at each dose level and determining the time to engraftment: absolute neutrophil count (>0.5 x 10^9/L for 3 consecutive days), and platelet (>20X 10^9/L for 3 consecutive days).

The hypothesis for the study is based on the ability of DD to deplete T-regs and subsequently enhance the immune reconstitution and reverse post transplant lymphopenia. This may indirectly enhance the efficacy of autologous transplantation and reduce disease relapse.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess Toxicities of Giving Two Doses of Ontak at Days 0 and 21 Post Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in a Dose Escalation Fashion. [ Time Frame: Up to 21 days post transplant ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    After drug infusion, participants will be closely monitored for at least 4 hours for side effects


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To Evaluate the Effect of Ontak on the Number and Percentage of Regulatory T Cells in the Peripheral Blood Post Transplant at Each Dose Level. [ Time Frame: days 0 and 21 post autologous stem cell transplantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To Evaluate the Effect of Ontak on T Cell CD4/CD8 Reconstitution Post Transplant at Each Dose. [ Time Frame: days 0 and 21 post autologous stem cell transplantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To Evaluate the Effect of Ontak on Engraftment of Neutrophils and Platelets Post Transplant at Each Dose. [ Time Frame: days 0 and 21 post autologous stem cell transplantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    During hospitalization stay (approximately 2 weeks), participants will receive injections of G-CSF on a daily basis starting on Day 6 and ending when white blood cells have engrafted. Participants usually remain hospitalized until engraftment.


Enrollment: 2
Study Start Date: November 2010
Study Completion Date: May 2013
Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Denileukin Diftitox (Ontak)
Denileukin Diftitox (Ontak) administered Post Autologous Transplantation.
Drug: Denileukin Diftitox (Ontak)

After receiving their stem cell transplant on Day 0, participants will receive study agent via a 30 minute infusion. Participants will also receive a 30 minute infusion of study agent on Day 21.

Follow-up visits for clinical assessment, blood draws for routine clinical laboratory studies and for immuno-correlative studies will also take place on days 42, 90, 180 and 360.
