Brief Summary:
Evaluation of the safety and efficacy of BCMA nanobody CAR-T cells in relapsed/refractory myeloma

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Relapsed/Refractory Myeloma Drug: BCMA nanobody CAR-T cells Phase 1

Detailed Description:
There are no effective regimens for relapsed/refractory myeloma. BCMA express extensively in mature B cells and plasma cells. Myeloma cells express BCMA universally. BCMA signal pathway can induce plasma cell proliferation and survival, down-regulation of BCMA could control the progression of myeloma. The BCMA CAR used in this study consists of BCMA nanobody, CD8 hinge, transmembrane region and 4-1bb co-stimulation domain.

BCMA nanobody CAR-T cells
Drug: BCMA nanobody CAR-T cells

step 1: Collect 50-100ml of peripheral blood for culture of BCMA nanobody CAR- T cells. step 2. After 72 hours, pretreated with FC regimen, details as follow Cyclophosphamide 600-800mg/m2 for 2 days Fludarabine 25-30mg/m2 for 3 days. step 3: After another 48 hours transfusion the cells back to the patients the numbers of infused CAR T cells are 5x106 /kg for the first 3 patients, 1.5x107 /kg for the second 3 patients and 4.5x107 /kg for the third 3 patients.

After finishing this, another 6 patients will be enrolled for observation of efficacy.
