Brief Summary:
This is a study for patients who have been previously treated for B-ALL. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and feasibility of CART-19 cells to the patients with relapsed and refractory CD19+ B-ALL.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Drug: Cyclophosphamide Drug: Fludarabine Biological: CART-19 cells Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be staged and the suitability of their T cells for CART-19 manufacturing will be determined at entry phase,. Subjects will be collected large numbers of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) for CART-19 manufacturing. The T cells will be purified from the PBMC, transduced with CART-19 lentiviral vector, expanded in vitro and then administered to subjects.

Subjects will have blood tests to assess safety and efficacy, and persistence of the CART-19 cells at regular intervals through four weeks after their last infusion of the study. Following the 6 months of intensive follow-up, subjects will be evaluated quarterly for two years with a physical examination, blood tests, bone marrow aspirate, minimal residual disease (MRD) and persistence of CART-19. Following this evaluation, subjects will be evaluated health problems every year for an additional thirteen years.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CART-19
patients will receive a pre-conditioning with cyclophosphamide and fludarabine before infusion of CART-19 cells. The CART-19 cells are to be administered on day0,day1,day2.
Drug: Cyclophosphamide
patients will receive a standard pre-conditioning regime with cyclophosphamide 0.8-1.0g/m2/day IV for 2 days(Day-5 to day-4).

Drug: Fludarabine
Fludarabine 25mg/m2/day IV for 3 days (Day-5 to day-3).

Biological: CART-19 cells
CART-19 cells will be administered using a split dose on day0(10%), 1(30%), and 2(60%) after completion of the chemotherapy.
Other Name: CD19 specific Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cells

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. safety as assessed by the occurrence of study related adverse events. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    monitor the occurrence of study related adverse events.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. efficacy [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    anti-tumor activity of CART-19 cells will be determined in a follow-on study

  2. duration of CART-19 [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Determine duration of in vivo survival of CART-19 cells.
