  Purpose

This protocol is a phase I study. Patients may be eligible for an infusion of Multi-virus Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTL) if they received a T-cell depleted (TCD) transplant from a related family member or an unrelated donor. Recipients of these types of transplants are severely immune compromised during the early post-transplant period and are more susceptible to certain viruses. The investigators hypothesize that the adoptive transfer of Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTL) against certain viruses: Adenovirus, Cytomegalovirus and Epstein Barr Virus (Ad, CMV, and EBV) will be safe with regard to producing graft versus host disease (GVHD) or other infusion related toxicities.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess toxicity by SAEs scored according to the adaptive CTCAE version 4 [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evidence of immunity against specific viral pathogens- Ad, CMV and EBV in recipients of Multi-Virus CTLs [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The incidence of Ad, EBV, and CMV systemic infections during the first 180 days post-transplant [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: February 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Biological: Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes
    Patients will be studied in cohorts of 3. Eligible patients will receive a single Multi-Virus CTL line infusion 28-60 days after their transplant. The dose will start at dose level 1 (2.0 x 106/kg). After each cohort of 3 patients has been treated at each of the dose levels, decisions will be made if the next high or lower dose level should be used.
Detailed Description:

Within this clinical trial, the investigators will test the hypotheses that the administration of CTLs for prophylaxis against Ad, CMV and EBV in recipients of TCD-HPCT will be safe and well tolerated. Graded doses of Multi-Virus CTL will be administered to recipients of genotypically haploidentical (or 2 allele mismatched relative) or mismatched unrelated TCD grafts.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 22 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient age < 22 years.
  • Both genders and all races are eligible.
  • Undergoing a T-cell depleted allogeneic HPCT from a related HLA partially matched (two antigen mismatched, or haplodisparate) donor or a mismatched unrelated donor
  • Must be willing to sign a written informed consent.
  • Patient Organ Status at the time of enrollment (pre-transplant)

    • Lansky or Karnofsky score > 50
    • Echocardiogram shortening fraction > 27%
    • Renal function: serum creatinine < 2 x normal for age
    • DLCO > 50% predicted in patients old enough to comply with PFTs or no baseline oxygen requirement for younger patients.
    • Hepatic: AST, ALT < 5x upper limit of normal; bilirubin < 2.0 mg/dl
  • Sexually active patients must be willing to utilize one of the more effective birth control methods for 6 months following CTL infusion. The male partner should use a condom.
  • Patients must be between 28 and 60 days post T-cell depleted allogeneic HPCT
  • Patients must meet the following criteria (within 72 hours of CTL infusion):

    • Achieved primary engraftment with an ANC of at least 1000 per μl for 3 consecutive days.
    • No oxygen requirement with oxygen saturations > 90%.
    • AST, ALT < 5x upper limit of normal for age; bilirubin < 2 mg/dl.
    • Hemoglobin > 8 gm/dl prior to infusion. (May be transfusion dependent).
    • Renal function: serum creatinine < 2 x normal for age.
  • The Patient must not have the following conditions on the day of CTL infusion:

    • Exhibit overt hematologic manifestations of relapse or persistent disease.
    • Evidence of recurrent/persistent disease based primarily on flow cytometry, cytogenetics, chimerism analysis, or other molecular studies does not by itself represent grounds for exclusion.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Currently enrolled on another Phase I clinical trial.
  • Pregnant or nursing
  • Overt hematologic manifestations of relapse or persistent disease
  • Having > grade 1 graft-versus-host disease.
