a study on Combined Immunodeficiency Disease, X-linked
SCID-X1 is a genetic disorder of blood cells caused by DNA changes in a gene that is required for the normal development of the human immune system. The purpose of this study is to determine if a new method, called lentiviral gene transfer, can be used to treat SCID-X1. This method involves transferring a normal copy of the common gamma chain gene into the participant's bone marrow stem cells. The investigators want to determine if the procedure is safe, whether it can be done according to the methods they have developed, and whether the procedure will provide a normal immune system for the patient. It is hoped that this type of gene transfer may offer a new way to treat children with SCID-X1 that do not have a brother or sister who can be used as a donor for stem cell transplantation.
A Pilot Feasibility Study of Gene Transfer for X-Linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency in Newly Diagnosed Infants Using a Self-Inactivating Lentiviral Vector to Transduce Autologous CD34+ Hematopoietic Cells
Bone marrow CD34+ cells will be obtained in the operating room, transduced with the lentiviral vector that contains a normal copy of the γc gene, and reinfused without any myeloreductive conditioning. Participants will be monitored for hematopoietic recovery from busulfan and for severe adverse events for 42 days. The primary endpoint assessing the efficacy of this approach will be T-cell immune reconstitution 52 weeks (+ 2) weeks after transplantation. Continued and detailed evaluation of all aspects of immune reconstitution, protocol-related toxicity, and retroviral integration sites will also be performed. This study will evaluate the first use of a SIN lentiviral vector for the treatment of SCID-X1 and may lead to a new form of therapy that could be applied to the majority of newly diagnosed patients.
Assess the safety, feasibility and efficacy of lentiviral gene transfer in newly diagnosed SCID-X1 patients transplanted with autologous CD34+ cells that have been transduced with a self-inactivating lentiviral vector (CL20-i4-EF1α-hγc-OPT) expressing a γc gene.
Primary Objective 1: Evaluate the safety and feasibility of infusing at least 1 million transduced CD34+ cells per kilogram of body weight in SCID-X1 infants.
Primary Objective 2: Evaluate the efficacy of lentiviral gene transfer for inducing significant T-cell reconstitution 52 weeks (± 2 weeks) after transplantation. Significant reconstitution of T cells is defined as at least 2 of the following 3 criteria being present:
OTHER PRE-SPECIFIED OBJECTIVES:
