Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 70 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
This is a non-randomized, open label, single center, phase I/II, therapeutic exploratory, dose-escalation, prospective study, involving a single intravenous infusion of Temferon, an investigational advanced therapy consisting of autologous CD34+-enriched hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) exposed to transduction with a third-generation, vesicular stomatitis virus-G (VSV-G) pseudo-typed lentiviral vector driving myeloid-specific interferon-ɑ2 (IFN-ɑ2) expression, which will be administered to up to 9 patients affected by multiple myeloma in early relapse after intensive front line treatment. The study will recruit, treat and follow-up patients at a specialist hematology and bone marrow transplantation unit at Ospedale San Raffaele (OSR) in Milan, Italy. The study will enrol multiple myeloma patients that have experienced an early relapse after intensive front line treatment, have been treated with an approved second line combination treatment regimen and obtained at least a very good partial remission (VGPR) according to International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) criteria. Once the written informed consent is obtained, and screening procedures have been completed, harvesting of HSPCs will occur. Patients will be offered maintenance treatment during Temferon production and release. Upon Temferon release for clinical use, patients will be admitted to the transplantation unit for receipt of a reduced-intensity conditioning regimen consisting of melphalan. This will be followed by autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) and administration of Temferon. In-patient monitoring will occur until hematological recovery occurs. Thereafter, regular follow-up of patients will occur up to 2 years (+730 days). At the +730 day visit, patients will be invited to participate in a long term follow-up study which will last for an additional 6 years. 3 cohorts of 3 patients will receive escalating doses of Temferon. In the event that MM disease progression occurs, patients will be managed according to best clinical practice.
Autologous CD34+-enriched hematopoietic progenitor cells exposed ex vivo to a specific lentiviral vector encoding for the human IFN-ɑ2 gene. Its expression is tightly controlled by the human TIE2 enhancer/promoter sequence and by a post-transcriptional regulation layer represented by target miRNA sequences. This enables suppression of IFN-ɑ2 expression in HSPCs, thereby further increasing the specificity of the delivery strategy for their Tie2 expressing myeloid cell progeny.
