A Phase 2 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Cell Transfer Therapy Using Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) followed by IL-2 in Subjects With Recurrent and/or Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck
Prospective, multicenter, single-arm, open label, interventional study evaluating adoptive cell therapy (ACT) with autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) infusion (LN-145) followed by IL-2 after a non-myeloablative (NMA) lymphodepletion preparative regimen for the treatment of patients with recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck
LN-145 is an adoptive cell transfer therapy that utilizes an autologous TIL manufacturing process, as originally developed by the NCI, for the treatment of patients with recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. The cell transfer therapy used in this study involves patients receiving a NMA lymphocyte depleting preparative regimen, followed by infusion of autologous TIL followed by the administration of a regimen of IL-2.
* Must have persistent, recurrent or metastatic HNSCC; histologic documentation of the primary tumor is required via the pathology report.
* Must have had at least 1 prior systemic chemotherapeutic regimen for management of persistent, recurrent or metastatic HNSCC. Patients must not have any curative therapy options, or be intolerant of, or decline standard of care therapy for persistent, recurrent or metastatic disease.
* Any prior therapy directed at the malignant tumor, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy, biologic/targeted agents and immunologic agents must be discontinued at least 21 days prior to tumor resection for preparing TIL therapy.
