Overview

Study Title

Open-Label, Multicenter, Phase 1b /2 Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Autologous Anti-claudin18.2 Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell Therapy in Subjects with Advanced Gastric, Pancreatic, or Other Specified Digestive System Cancers

Summary

This is an open label, multi-center, Phase 1b clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of autologous claudin18.2 chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy in patients with advanced gastric or pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

Objective

Cohort A Primary -Evaluate the safety and tolerability of CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) in patients with advanced STAD or PAAD -Identify the MTD and a RP2D of CT041 therapy in patients with STAD or PAAD Secondary: -Evaluate clinical efficacy outcomes with CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) in patients with advanced STAD or PAAD Exploratory: -Evaluate PK and biodistribution of CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) in patients with STAD or PAAD -Evaluate the performance of CLDN18.2 IHC assay in patients with STAD or PAAD -Evaluate anti-CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) drug antibodies in patients with STAD or PAAD Cohort B Primary: -Determine the efficacy of CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041), in terms of ORR in patients with PAAD Secondary -Evaluate the safety and tolerability of CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) in patients with PAAD -Evaluate additional clinical efficacy outcomes with CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) in patients with PAAD Exploratory -Evaluate PK and biodistribution of CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) in patients with PAAD -Evaluate the performance of CLDN18.2 IHC assay in patients with PAAD -Evaluate anti-CAR-CLDN18.2 T-cell therapy (CT041) drug antibodies in patients with PAAD
