Clinical Trial Summary

Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for recipients of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation(HSCT). we propose to study the immunologic and virologic effects of donor derived CMV specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CMV-CTL) given to transplant recipients CMV antigen peptides will be used to induce the CMV antigen specific T lymphocytes derived from donor peripheral blood mononuclear cells for a period of 18~21 days.The patients will receive CMV-CTL cells when they are sero-positive for CMV-DNA 30 days after transplant. The CMV-DNA level will be monitored weekly after transfusion.


Clinical Trial Description

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is widely used for the treatment of hematological malignancies and bone marrow failure diseases. Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for recipients of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation(HSCT). Approximately half of the recipients would develop CMV infection after transplant. Present treatment recommendation for CMV infection including ganciclovir and foscarnet. However, these medications have many side effects, the most serious is myelosuppression and renal injury, moreover, many patients do not response to these medications. Considering the risk associated with persistent infection and the potential for CMV specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CMV-CTL) to restore immunity, we propose to study the immunologic and virologic effects of donor derived CMV-CTL given to transplant recipients, levels of CMV-CTL and CMV DNA will be measured from CTL recipients. If the patient and their donor are eligible, we will take 80 ml of fresh blood from the donor or 5 ml peripheral blood stem cell from the donor.The peripheral blood mononuclear cells will be separated from peripheral blood or peripheral blood stem cell. CMV antigen peptides will be used to induce the CMV-CTL for a period of 18~21 days. The donor derived CMV-CTL cells will be transfused into the patients' intravenous line. The patients will receive the dose of CMV-CTL cells when they are sero-positive for CMV-DNA 30 days after transplant. The CMV-DNA levels will be monitored weekly for at least 60 days after the transplant. If after the initial dose of CMV-CTL cells the patient develops a viral infection, then they may be eligible to receive one additional injection of CTLs. If the CMV levels in the blood continue to rise after the dose of T cells then the patient will receive treatment with Ganciclovir, Foscarnet. ;
