A Dose Escalation and Dose Expansion Trial to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Anti-tumor Activity of Autologous T Cell Modified Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) CCT 301-38 or CCT 301-59 in Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma

Condition: Renal Cell Carcinoma


  • Biological: CCT301-38
  • Biological: CCT301-59

Purpose: This is a two arm, open-label, dose escalation and dose expansion clinical study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of infusion of autologous CCT301-38 or CCT 301-59 T cells in adult subjects with relapsed and refractory stage IV metastatic renal cell carcinoma.Subjects with ROR2 positive biopsy will receive CCT301-59. Subjects with AXL positive biopsy that are ROR2 negative will receive CCT301-38.
