Biological: MB-102

The study drug, MB-102 consists of adoptively transferred T cells that are genetically modified using a self-inactivating (SIN) lentiviral vector to express a CD123-specific, CD28-costimulatory chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) as well as a truncated human epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFRt) (CD123.CD28.CD3ζ.EGFRt+T cells) derived from autologous leukapheresis which is administered after a lymphodepletion regimen.

Single dose of MB-102 up to 600 x 10 6 CART-T+ cells (Day 0) as defined by Phase 1 will be administered.

Other Name: CD123 CAR-T

Drug: Fludarabine

Fludarabine 30 mg/m2/day IV (3 days) on days -5, -4, and -3

  • A 20% dose reduction (24 mg/m2/day IV (3 days) on days -5, -4, and -3) is required for patients with moderately impaired renal function (creatine clearance ≤ 70 mL/min).

  3. Phase 2: Response Rate of patients with BPDCN [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]
    Relapsed or refractory Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm is measured by a response rate which consists of Complete Response and clinical Complete Response and Complete Response with incomplete hematologic recovery (CR + CRc + CRi) at day 28 post infusion

Secondary Outcome Measures :

  4. Phase 2: BPDCN - MRD [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]
    CR MRD- Response Rate for patients with CR and CRi

  5. Phase 2 - Adverse events [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]
    Incidence of treatment-emergent AEs (TEAEs), including SAEs, therapy-related AEs or death.

  6. Phase 2 -Change from Baseline in the European Organization for Research and Treatment (EORTC) QLQ-C 30 Version 3.0. [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]

    The European Organization for Research and Treatment (EORTC) QLQ-C 30 Version 3.0 is an integrated, modular approach for evaluating the quality of life of patients participating in international clinical trials. The questionnaire is designed to measure cancer patients' physical, psychological and social functions. The questionnaire is composed of 5 multi-item scales (physical, role, social, emotional and cognitive functioning) and 9 single items (pain, fatigue, financial impact, appetite loss, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, sleep disturbance and quality of life).

    It utilizes a four-point scales for the first 28 questions which are coded with response categories as "Not at all", "A little", "Quite a bit" and "Very much.". the final two question consist of an overall physical condition questions which have employed a 7-point response scale where the higher number indicates a better overall health.

  7. Phase 2 - Change from Baseline in the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Bone Marrow Transplant (FACT-BMT) Version 4.0. [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]

    The Functional Assessment of Cancer treatment for cancer, and a transplant-specific module, bone marrow transplant (BMT) concerns, that addresses disease and treatment-related questions specific to BMT.

    It utilizes a 5 point scale assessing physical, social, emotional, functional and other well-being concerns. Response categories are coded as "Not at all", "A little bit", "Somewhat", "Quite a bit" and "Very much.".

  8. Phase 2 - Number of patients showing evidence of replication competent lentivirus [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]
    To confirm the absence of replication competent lentivirus
