A Study of CD19 Redirected Autologous T Cells for CD19 Positive Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)


Brief description of study

CAR-T therapy was therefore proposed and has been recently used for cancer treatment. It has been hailed for its promising remission rates after early stage clinical trials for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. However, CAR-T therapy is seldom used for autoimmune diseases. Researchers only use it for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS, an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system). SLE is a kind of autoimmune diseases which involving multiple systems, organs and with the present of a variety of autoantibodies. In the conventional treatment options, SLE could be treated with chemotherapy drugs or hormone drugs. But chemotherapy and hormone drugs could barely cured SLE. And now, chimeric antigen receptor modified T cell infusion maybe an effective treatment to solve these problems. The investigators use a 2nd CAR- T with the optimized hinge and transmembrane domain to treat patients with SLE. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of this 2nd CAR-T cells in the treatment of SLE.

Detailed Study Description

This study is being conducted to assess anti-CD19-CAR-T cells safety and efficacy in treating patients with systemic lupus erythematosusSLE.The investigators constructed a 2nd CAR, using CD19 as target, using 4-1BB as co-stimulator, and optimized the spatial conformation by a suitable hinge and transmembrane domain sequences. The infusion dose is (1-10)E6 CAR positive T cells/kg, and the specific cells numbers depends on the situation of individual CAR-T cells preparation.
