Phase I, Open Label, Multicenter, Dose Escalation Study of CD19-specific CAR-T Cells in Adult Patients With CLL/SLL and DLBCL

This is a first-in-human study to evaluate the feasibility, safety and preliminary antitumor efficacy of autologous T cells genetically engineered with a CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and manufactured with a new process. CAR-T cells will be investigated in combination with ibrutinib in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) and as single agent in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
