This is a single arm, open-label, multi-center, phase 1/2 study, to determine the safety and efficacy of KTE-C19, an autologous anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-positive T cell therapy, in refractory aggressive Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL).

  20. Creatinine clearance (as estimated by Cockcroft Gault) > 60 mL/min
  21. Serum ALT/AST <2.5 ULN
  22. Total bilirubin <1.5 mg/dl, except in subjects with Gilbert's syndrome

Key Exclusion Criteria

  1. History of malignancy other than nonmelanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ (e.g.cervix, bladder, breast) or follicular lymphoma unless disease free for at least 3 years
  2. History of allogeneic stem cell transplantation

  4. Presence of fungal, bacterial, viral, or other infection that is uncontrolled or requiring IV antimicrobials for management. Simple UTI and uncomplicated bacterial pharyngitis are permitted if responding to active treatment
  5. History of HIV infection or acute or chronic active hepatitis B or C infection.Subjects with history of hepatitis infection must have cleared their infection as determined by standard serological and genetic testing per current Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) guidelines
  6. Subjects with detectable cerebrospinal fluid malignant cells, or brain metastases, or with a history of CNS lymphoma or primary CNS lymphoma, cerebrospinal fluid malignant cells or brain metastases
  7. History or presence of CNS disorder such as seizure disorder, cerebrovascular ischemia/hemorrhage, dementia, cerebellar disease, or any autoimmune disease with CNS involvement
