Brief Summary:
This study is an open-label randomized, prospectively and historically controlled trial of the safety and efficacy of a single ProHema-CB unit used as part of a double CB transplant following myeloablative or reduced intensity conditioning for subjects age 15-65 years with hematologic malignancies. A maximum of 60 eligible subjects will be enrolled and treated in the trial at approximately 10 centers within the U.S.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hematologic Malignancies Biological: ProHema-CB Biological: Untreated CB Phase 2

Detailed Description:
All subjects will receive a myeloablative or reduced intensity conditioning regimen, after which they will receive 2 HLA-matched UCB units. A total of 40 subjects will receive one ProHema-CB as part of a double CB transplant and an additional 20 subjects will be enrolled as concurrent controls. The determination of which CB unit will be the ProHema-CB unit will be made based primarily upon the degree of HLA match.

Official Title: A Phase 2 Controlled Trial of a Single ProHema®-CB Unit (Ex Vivo Modulated Human Cord Blood) As Part of a Double Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant Following Myeloablative or Reduced Intensity Conditioning For Patients Age 15-65 Years With Hematologic Malignancies.
Study Start Date : July 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : February 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : May 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ProHema-CB Biological: ProHema-CB
Ex-vivo CXCR4 upregulated hematopoietic progenitor cells, cord blood

Active Comparator: Control Arm Biological: Untreated CB
Cord Blood

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neutrophil engraftment/chimerism [ Time Frame: before Day 60 ]
    To determine the rate of neutrophil engraftment after a single ProHema-CB unit is used as part of a double CB transplant.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neutrophil engraftment [ Time Frame: before Day 180 ]
    To define measures of engraftment, including time to neutrophil engraftment, cumulative incidence of neutrophil engraftment by Day 42, time to platelet engraftment (> 20K and > 50K), cumulative incidence of platelet engraftment, and rates of primary and secondary graft failure

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   15 Years to 65 Years   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subjects with hematologic malignancies for whom allogeneic stem cell transplantation is deemed clinically appropriate. Eligible diseases and stages include:

    • Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (including T lymphoblastic leukemia) in complete remission.
    • Remission is defined as < 5% blasts with no morphological characteristics of acute leukemia in a bone marrow with > 20% cellularity.
    • Acute myelogenous leukemia in high risk first CR or second or subsequent CR.
    • High risk first CR is defined by but is not limited to at least one of the following factors: greater than 1 cycle of induction chemotherapy to achieve CR, prior myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), presence of Flt3 abnormalities, FAB M6 or M7 subtypes of leukemia, or adverse cytogenetics.
    • Remission is defined as < 5% blasts with no morphological characteristics of acute leukemia (e.g. Auer Rods) in a bone marrow with > 20% cellularity.
    • Biphenotypic/Undifferentiated leukemia in first or subsequent CR (same definition of CR as for ALL/AML).
    • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (T-cell, large cell or mantle cell) or Hodgkin's lymphoma in second or subsequent complete remission (CR) or in partial remission (PR) with documented chemosensitivity. In addition, marginal zone lymphoma or follicular lymphoma that has progressed after ≥ 2 therapies (excluding single-agent rituximab). No history of prior myeloablative procedure.
  2. Lack of suitable 5-6/6 HLA-matched related or (if institutional guidelines dictate) suitable 8/8 HLA-A, B, C, DRß1 matched unrelated donor; or unrelated donor not available within appropriate timeframe.
  3. Age 15-65 years.
  4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-2.
  5. Signed IRB approved Informed Consent Form (ICF).

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. History of prior allogeneic transplantation
  2. Cardiac disease: symptomatic congestive heart failure or evidence of left ventricular dysfunction (Ejection fraction < 40%) as measured by gated radionuclide ventriculogram or echocardiogram; active angina pectoris, or uncontrolled hypertension; history of myocardial infarction with depressed ejection fraction.
  3. Pulmonary disease: symptomatic chronic obstructive lung disease, symptomatic restrictive lung disease, or corrected DLCO of < 50% of predicted, corrected for hemoglobin.
  4. Renal disease: serum creatinine > 2.0 mg/dl and calculated creatinine clearance < 40 mL/min.
  5. Hepatic disease: serum bilirubin > 2.0 mg/dl (except in the case of Gilbert's syndrome or ongoing hemolytic anemia), SGOT or SGPT > 5 x upper limit of normal.
  6. Neurologic disease: symptomatic leukoencephalopathy, active CNS malignancy or other neuropsychiatric abnormalities believed to preclude transplantation.
  7. HIV antibody.
  8. Uncontrolled infection.
  9. Pregnancy or breast feeding mother.
  10. Inability to comply with the requirements for care after allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
