Prevention of Acute Graft Versus Host Disease in Patients Undergoing Allogeneic ApoGraft Stem Cell Transplantation


Brief description of study

Interventional, open label, Phase I/II, Safety and Proof-of-Concept Study, with a follow up period of 180 days after the transplantation of ApoGraft.

Detailed Study Description

ApoGraft product is a mobilized peripheral blood cell product of a matched Related donor, collected via apheresis, which is exposed to the apoptotic mediator Fas Ligand (CD95L) prior to transplantation (Ex Vivo).

The study is designed to address the aspects of engraftment and Prevention of Acute Graft versus Host Disease (aGvHD) rate and/or severity in 12 Patients

STUDY DESIGN:

This is a phase 1/2, open-label, proof-of-concept, staggered 4-cohort clinical study. Each cohort will include 3 patients with hemato-oncology disorders eligible for allogeneic HLA-matched HSCT. Patients in all cohorts will undergo similar study procedures and evaluation. The cohorts will differ from each other in the amount of apoptotic mediator Fas Ligand (APO010) to which the graft is exposed during incubation prior to ApoGraft transplantation and HSCT, ranging from 10 ng/ml APO010 in Cohort 1, 25 ng/ml APO010 in Cohort 2, 50 ng/ml APO010 in Cohort 3 and 100 ng/ml APO010 in Cohort 4. APO010 is washed-out as part of the ApoGraft process and only trace amounts of APO010 are present in the final ApoGraft product

The study consists of a screening phase (subject and donor clinical assessment and screening tests), transplantation of ApoGraft, and a follow-up period of 180 days during and after hospitalization.

The study will progress from one cohort to the next based on an independent data safety monitoring board (DSMB) review and analysis of safety data
