Brief Summary:
This is an Open-Label, Single-Arm, Phase II Multicenter Study of the Safety and Efficacy of PRO 140 for Prophylaxis of Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GVHD) in Patients Undergoing Reduced Intensity Conditioning (RIC) Allogeneic Stem-Cell Transplantation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Graft Vs Host Disease Drug: PRO 140 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label, single-arm, phase II, multicenter study to evaluate the feasibility of the use of PRO 140 as an add-on therapy to standard GVHD prophylaxis treatment for prevention of acute GVHD in adult patients undergoing RIC allogeneic HCT.

In this study, up to 60 subjects will be enrolled. PRO 140 will be administered as a 525 mg subcutaneous injection on Day -3 or Day -2 prior to stem cell infusion, on the day of stem cell infusion (Day 0), and then weekly for up to 100±7 days. Subjects will return to the clinic for three Follow-up visits at 2 weeks after the last treatment visit, 30 days after the last treatment visit and one year after the first treatment visit.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

Subjects may be included in the study only if they meet all of the following inclusion criteria:

  1. Patients ≥18 years of age with a hematologic malignancy other than aplastic anemia or primary myelofibrosis, scheduled to undergo RIC allogeneic SCT with a peripheral blood stem cell graft, using Fludarabine/Busulfan (Flu/Bu) conditioning and Tacrolimus/ Methotrexate (Tac/MTX) GVHD prophylaxis. The following diagnoses are included:

    • Acute leukemia - Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or acute bi-phenotypic leukemia.

    Note: Patients should have documentation of complete remission within 6 weeks prior to their transplant. Complete remission is defined as <5% blasts on a bone marrow biopsy and absence of any known extramedullary disease.

    • Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in any stage, but with documentation of <5% blasts on a bone marrow biopsy within 6 weeks prior to transplant.
    • Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) of any subtype, but with documentation of <5% blasts on a bone marrow biopsy within 6 weeks prior to transplant.
    • Myeloproliferative disorders other than primary myelofibrosis.
    • Lymphoma - All types of lymphoma are eligible.
    • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and Prolymphocytic leukaemia (PLL).
  2. Patients who meet institutional eligibility criteria for allogeneic SCT:

    • Renal function: Serum creatinine ≤ 2.
    • Hepatic function: Baseline direct bilirubin, ALT or AST lower than three times the upper limit of normal.
    • Pulmonary: FVC or FEV1 ≥ 40% predicted.
    • Cardiac ejection fraction ≥ 40%.
    • Clinically normal resting 12-lead ECG at screening visit or, if abnormal, considered not clinically significant by the PI Note: Prior documented echocardiogram and pulmonary function tests within the last 3 months of the Screening Visit is acceptable. If these are not performed within last 3 months, then these tests must be completed within the Screening Phase. In case the test is repeated between the Screening Visit and the First Treatment Visit, the most recent results will be used for the eligibility assessment.
  3. HLA matched sibling or URD at least 7/8 HLA-A, -B, -C and -DRB1 matching by high-resolution molecular typing and will meet eligibility criteria to serve as a peripheral blood stem-cell donor.
  4. Karnofsky scores ≥ 70% at the time of screening.
  5. Capacity to understand and sign the study informed consent form.
  6. Negative pregnancy test. Women of childbearing potential (not having had a hysterectomy, a bilateral oophorectomy or bilateral tubal ligation, or be post-menopausal with a total cessation of menses of > 1 year) must agree to use documented reliable method(s) of contraception. Men should agree to use condoms during the study period.
  7. Co-enrollment in other clinical trials that do not include experimental GVHD therapies is allowed.
