Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


The primary objective of this study is to compare safety and efficacy of a haploidentical T-cell depleted HSCT and adjunctive treatment with ATIR101 versus a haploidentical T cell replete HSCT with post-transplant administration of high dose cyclophosphamide (PTCy) in patients with a hematologic malignancy. An additional objective of the study is to compare the effect of the two treatments on quality of life.

Official Title

A Phase III, Multicenter, Randomized Controlled Study to Compare Safety and Efficacy of a Haploidentical HSCT and Adjunctive Treatment With ATIR101, a T-lymphocyte Enriched Leukocyte Preparation Depleted ex Vivo of Host Alloreactive T-cells, Versus a Haploidentical HSCT With Post-transplant Cyclophosphamide in Patients With a Hematologic Malignancy

Eligibility Criteria

Ages Eligible for Study: 18 Years to 70 Years
Sexes Eligible for Study: All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
Inclusion Criteria:
  1. - Any of the following hematologic malignancies: - Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first cytomorphological remission (with < 5% blasts in the bone marrow) with Disease Risk Index (DRI) intermediate or above, or in second or higher cytomorphological remission (with < 5% blasts in the bone marrow) - Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in first or higher remission (with < 5% blasts in the bone marrow) - Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS): transfusion-dependent (requiring at least one transfusion per month), or intermediate or higher Revised International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS-R) risk group - Clinical justification of allogeneic stem cell transplantation where a suitable HLA matched sibling or unrelated donor is unavailable in a timely manner - Availability of a related haploidentical donor with one fully shared haplotype and 2 to 4 mismatches at the HLA-A, -B, -C, and -DRB1 loci of the unshared haplotype, as determined by high resolution human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-typing - Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) ≥ 70% - Male or female, age ≥ 18 years and ≤ 70 years. Patients aged ≥ 65 years must have a Sorror score ≤ 3 - Patient weight ≥ 25 kg and ≤ 130 kg - Availability of a donor aged ≥ 16 years and ≤ 75 years who is eligible according to local requirements and regulations. Donors aged < 16 years are allowed if they are the only option for an HSCT, if they are permitted by local regulations, and if the IRB/IEC approves participation in the study. - For females of childbearing potential who are sexually active and males who have sexual contact with a female of childbearing potential: willingness to use of reliable methods of contraception (oral contraceptives, intrauterine device, hormone implants, contraceptive injection or abstinence) during study participation - Given written informed consent (patient and donor)
Exclusion Criteria:
  1. - Diagnosis of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) - Availability of a suitable HLA-matched sibling or unrelated donor in a donor search - Prior allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation - Diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (hemoglobin corrected DLCO) < 50% predicted - Left ventricular ejection fraction < 45% (evaluated by echocardiogram or MUGA scan) - Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and/or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 2.5 × upper limit of normal (CTCAE grade 2) - Creatinine clearance < 50 ml/min (calculated or measured) - Positive pregnancy test or breastfeeding of patient or donor (women of childbearing age only) - Estimated probability of surviving less than 3 months - Known allergy to any of the components of ATIR101 (e.g., dimethyl sulfoxide) - Known hypersensitivity to cyclophosphamide or any of its metabolites - Any contraindication for GVHD prophylaxis with mycophenolate mofetil, cyclosporine A, or tacrolimus - Known presence of HLA antibodies against the non-shared donor haplotype - Positive viral test of the patient or donor for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1, HIV-2, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), Treponema pallidum, human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV)-1 (if tested), HTLV-2 (if tested), West Nile virus (WNV; if tested), or Zika virus (if tested) - Any other condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, makes the patient or donor ineligible for the study
