What is a clinical trial?

Although there are many definitions of clinical trials, they are generally considered to be biomedical or health-related research studies in human beings that follow a pre-defined protocol. We have both interventional & observational types of studies. Interventional studies are those in which the research subjects are assigned by the investigator to a treatment or other intervention, and their outcomes are measured. Observational studies are those in which individuals are observed and their outcomes are measured by the investigators.

Gene transfer is a process in which the DNA (genetic material) of certain cells is changed. In this study, gene transfer will be performed on a type of white blood cell (called T cells) to recognize leukemia cells in the same person the T cells were collected from. The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if it is safe to give these genetically-changed T cells back to patients with CLL/SLL. Researchers also want to learn if these cells can help to attack CLL/SLL cells.
