This is a Phase 3 study to evaluate posoleucel (ALVR105, Viralym-M); an allogeneic, off-the-shelf multi-virus specific T cell therapy that targets six viral pathogens: BK virus, cytomegalovirus, adenovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, human herpesvirus 6 and JC virus.

Official Title

Phase 2/3, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of ALVR105 Posoleucel (ALVR105,Viralym-M) Compared to Placebo for the Prevention of AdV, BKV, CMV, EBV, HHV-6, and JCV Infection and/or Disease, in High-Risk Patients After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplant


This is a Phase 2/3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial comparing posoleucel to placebo for the prevention of infection or disease due to AdV, BKV, CMV, EBV, HHV-6, or JCV in high-risk adult and pediatric patients after allogeneic HCT.

There are 2 parts to the study, a Phase 3 randomized study cohort described in this posting, and an open label Phase 2 cohort described in NCT04693637, which has completed enrollment. In this Phase 3 part, approximately 302 eligible allogeneic HCT recipients will be enrolled and will receive 7 doses of posoleucel or placebo over 12 weeks, followed by a 12 week follow-up period.


Adenovirus Infection, BK Virus Infection, Cytomegalovirus Infections, Epstein-Barr Virus Infections, Human Herpes Virus-6 Infection, JC Virus Infection, Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplant, ALVR105, Posoleucel, Viralym-M, Virus-specific T cells (VSTs), Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTLs), Infections, Communicable Diseases, Virus Diseases, Adenoviridae Infections, Posoleucel (ALVR105)
