Klinische Studien

Informationen zur klinischen Forschung und den zugehörigen Studien

Klinische Studien im Bereich innovativer Zelltherapien werden in enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Klinik für Hämatologie durchgeführt. Weiters pflegt unsere Transplantationsimmunologie eine enge Zusammenarbeit mit verschiedenen Kliniken der MedUni Wien, aber auch anderen Universitätskliniken in Österreich.

This is a first-in-human study to evaluate the feasibility, safety and preliminary antitumor efficacy of autologous T cells genetically engineered with a CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and manufactured with a new process. CAR-T cells will be investigated in combination with ibrutinib in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) and as single agent in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical benefit and characterize the safety profile of tabelecleucel for the treatment of Epstein-Barr virus-associated post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (EBV+ PTLD) in the setting of (1) solid organ transplant (SOT) after failure of rituximab and rituximab plus chemotherapy or (2) allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) after failure of rituximab. This is a multicenter, open-label, phase 3 study to assess the efficacy and safety of tabelecleucel for the treatment of EBV+ PTLD in the setting of SOT after failure of rituximab and rituximab plus chemotherapy (SOT cohort) or HCT after failure of rituximab (HCT cohort).


The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of tabelecleucel in participants with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated diseases. This is a multicenter, multicohort, open label, single-arm, Phase 2 study to assess the efficacy and safety of tabelecleucel for the treatment of EBV-associated diseases in participants who are newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory to prior treatment. Newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory participants will be enrolled in one of the following cohorts:

  • EBV+ lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) in the setting of primary immunodeficiency (PID) (PID LPD)
  • EBV+ LPD in the setting of acquired (non-congenital) immunodeficiency (AID) (AID LPD)
  • EBV+ posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder involving the central nervous system (CNS PTLD)
  • EBV+ PTLD where standard first line therapy (rituximab or chemotherapy) is not appropriate, including CD20 negative disease
  • EBV+ sarcomas, including leiomyosarcoma (LMS)
  • Chronic active EBV (CAEBV) and EBV+ hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) (CAEBV/HLH cohort)

This is a pivotal Phase II randomised, multi-centre, open-label study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MB-CART2019.1 compared to standard of care therapy in participants with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, who are not eligible for high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation.

This study should determine superiority of MB-CART2019.1 treatment compared to SoC therapy with R-GemOx (rituximab, gemcitabine and oxaliplatin) with respect to progression-free survival in second-line therapy in participants with R-R DLBCL, who are non-eligible for high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation. MB-CART2019.1 is designed to effectively target malignant B cells in patients suffering from late stage haematological B-cell malignancies. MB-CART2019.1 consists of autologous cluster of differentiation CD20/CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) transduced CD4/CD8 enriched T cells, derived from a leukapheresis and processed by using the CliniMACS Prodigy®. Patients who are suitable for this study will be randomized 1:1 to either MB-CART2019.1 or SoC. Both treatment arms are unblinded. MB-CART2019.1 arm: Single infusion of fresh formulation of 2.5 × 10^6 CAR-transduced autologous T cells. IMP is only to be administered after a lymphodepleting chemotherapy with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide. For MB-CART2019.1 production, patients will undergo a leukapheresis. SoC arm: R-GemOx (8 cycles of 14 days each) or (10% of SoC arm) BR (Bendamustine/Rituximab) + polatuzumab vedotin (6 cycles of 21 days each).The duration of the active part of the study for each individual participant from screening to the end of the 1-year follow-up after infusion of MB-CART2019.1 cells (experimental arm) or the start of SoC therapy (comparator arm) will be approximately 55 weeks. The LTFU in Year 2 after infusion of MB-CART2019.1 cells or the start of treatment in the comparator arm will not be part of the active part of the clinical study and will be reported separately.

An Adaptive Phase 3, Randomized, Open-Label, Multicenter Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Axicabtagene Ciloleucel versus Standard of Care Therapy as First-Line Therapy in Subjects with High-Risk Large B-Cell Lymphoma

The goal of this clinical study is to compare the study drug, axicabtagene ciloleucel, versus standard of care (SOC) in first-line therapy in participants with high-risk large B-cell lymphoma.
