Malignant Pleural Disease Treated With Autologous T Cells Genetically Engineered to Target the Cancer-Cell Surface Antigen Mesothelin


Brief description of study

The purpose of this Phase I study is to test the safety of different doses of specially prepared immune cells (called "T cells") collected from blood. The Investigators want to find a safe dose of these modified T cells for patients who have malignant pleural disease. They want to find out what effects these T cells have on the patient and the cancer (MPD).

Detailed Study Description

This is an open-label, dose-escalating, non randomized, single-center, phase I study of mesothelin-targeted T cells administered intrapleurally as a single infusion in patients with a diagnosis (histologically or cytologically documented) of MPD from mesothelioma, lung cancer, or breast cancer. The total number of patients studied will depend on the number of dose levels tested, up to a maximum dose of 210^8 mesothelin-targeted T cells/kg or until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is reached.
