Brief Summary:
This is a Phase I/II clinical trial of gene therapy for treating Chronic Granulomatous Disease using a high-safety, high-efficiency, self-inactivating lentiviral vector TYF to functionally correct the defective gene. The objectives are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the TYF-CGD gene transfer clinical protocol.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Granulomatous Disease Genetic: Infusion of lentiviral TYF-CGD-modified autologous stem cells Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a rare disorder caused by inherited defects in the NADPH oxidase multienzyme complex. It is associated with severe and life-threatening bacterial and fungal infections. Approximately two-thirds of all CGD cases result from mutations within the X-linked gp91phox gene (CYBB), followed by the autosomal recessive forms of CGD, with defects in the gene coding for p47phox (NCF1) accounting for 10-30% of all CGD cases.

The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety of the advanced self-inactivating lentiviral vector TYF-CYBB and TYF-NCF1, the ex-vivo gene transfer clinical protocol and the efficacy of immune reconstitution in patients overcoming frequent infections present at the time of treatment, assessment of vector integration sites, and finally the long-term correction of immune dysfunctions.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 10 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Lentiviral Gene Therapy for Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD)
Actual Study Start Date : July 1, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 30, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lentiviral TYF-CGD-modified autologous stem cells
Autologous hematopoietic stem cells transduced with lentiviral TYF vector carrying the functional gene
Genetic: Infusion of lentiviral TYF-CGD-modified autologous stem cells
Infusion of lentiviral TYF-modified autologous stem cells at 1~10x10^6 gene-modified cells per kg body weight

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 15 year follow up ]
    Patient will be monitored for overall health condition, including immune cell assessments, blood biochemistry and metabolitic activities, metabolic detoxification.

  2. Gene marking in bone marrow cells [ Time Frame: 15 year follow up ]
    Gene-modified cells in the bone marrow will be measured by vector-specific quantitative PCR of colony-forming cells. Patient overall survival will be followed up for 15 years.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in infection frequency [ Time Frame: 1 year after treatment by clinical history, complete physical examination, haematological and microbiological tests ]
  2. Recovery of immune function [ Time Frame: 1 year follow up ]
    Whole blood cell counts (WBC), including CD3+ CD4, CD8 T cells, CD19+ B cells and CD16/CD56 NK cells, and absolute neutrophil counts (ANC), the percentage of NADPH oxidase positive cells, and the kinetics of transduced cells as determined by dihydrorhodamine (DHR) assay, will be measured.
