Study Evaluating Safety and Efficacy of JCAR017 in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (SLL)
This is a Phase 1/2, open-label, multicenter study to determine the efficacy and safety of JCAR017 in adult subjects with relapsed or refractory CLL or SLL. The study will include a Phase 1 part to determine the recommended dose of JCAR017 monotherapy in subjects with relapsed or refractory CLL or SLL, followed by a Phase 2 randomized part to assess JCAR017 monotherapy treatment versus standard of care. A separate Phase 1 cohort will assess the combination of JCAR017 and concurrent ibrutinib. In all subjects, the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of JCAR017 will be evaluated.

- Subjects with CLL or SLL who are BTKi intolerant and have received < 6 months of BTKi therapy or are ineligible for BTKi must have failed at least 1 (high-risk)or 2 (standard-risk) other lines of non-BTKi therapy.
- Subjects in the ibrutinib + JCAR017 combination therapy cohort must be either:
