Phase 2 trial of CART19 for Orphan Indications Of Pediatric B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL)

This is an open-label, four-cohort, phase 2 study to determine the efficacy of CART19 in pediatric and young adult patients with hypodiploid (Cohort A) or t(17;19) B-ALL (Cohort B), infants with very high risk KMT2A B-ALL (Cohort C), and in patients with central nervous system (CNS) relapse who did not receive cranial radiation (XRT) or bone marrow transplantation (BMT) (Cohort D). Possible procedures include medical record review, apheresis, CART19 infusion, blood draws, physical exams, imaging, and disease assessments through bone marrows and lumbar punctures. If interested in the study or if you have any questions, please contact 267-426-0762.

Study of Efficacy and Safety of Tisagenlecleucel in Children and Young Adults with HR B-ALL that is end-consolidation MRD Positive (AALL1721/CASSIOPEIA)

The purpose of this study is to test if the CD19 CAR T cell product tisagenlecleucel (also referred to as CTL019, or Kymriah™) is safe and has beneficial effects in children and young adults who have newly diagnosed high-risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (HR B-ALL) that remains MRD-positive after 2 cycles of chemotherapy. The study is enrolling children and young adults between the ages of 1-25 who have received induction and consolidation chemotherapy for HR B-ALL but were still found to have remaining disease (MRD). If you agree to join in this study, you will get one dose of the tisagenlecleucel cells administered by intravenous infusion and be followed for leukemia response. This study also involves blood draws and assessments. Reimbursement for travel may be provided. If you have questions or would like to learn more about the study, please contact the Cancer Immunotherapy Program at (215) 425-7193. The Principal Investigator is Dr. Shannon Maude and the Immunotherapy Nurse Navigator is Brooke Leibfreid, RN.

Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) (BIANCA)

This purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of tisagenlecleucel (also referred to as CTL019, or Kymriah™) in children, adolescents and young adults with relapsed/refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The study is enrolling children and young adults up to age 25 with CD19-expressing mature B-cell NHL, including Burkitt leukemia/lymphoma, that has relapsed after one or more prior therapies or is primary refractory (not achieved a complete remission (CR) or partial response (PR) after the first line of therapy). This study involves the administration of the study drug, blood draws, assessment of lymphoma response, and chart reviews. After a process called leukapheresis, in which T cells (a type of white blood cell) are removed from the subject's blood and modified in order to target the lymphoma, they are returned back to the subject as the study drug. Reimbursement for travel may be provided. If you have questions or would like to learn more about the study, please contact the Cancer Immunotherapy Program at (215) 425-7193. The Principal Investigator is Dr. Shannon Maude.

CD33 CART AML

This phase 1/2 study will determine the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of CD33 CART cells following lymphodepleting chemotherapy in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Patients who are between ages 1 to 30 years with relapsed or refractory AML will be eligible for this study.
