Gene Therapy Follow up for Subjects Previously Enrolled in NCI Experimental Transplantation and Immunology Branch Studies

2020-02-16 17:40:47 | BioPortfolio



Gene therapy is closely followed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA requires researchers to conduct long-term follow-up of people who have had the treatment. This study collects data on people who have had gene therapy and sends it to the FDA. The data does not include participants names.


To contact current or past participants of gene therapy protocols at least once a year for up to 15 years to ensure they have not had any harmful side effects.

Participants will give their address and telephone number. They will also give and the address and phone number of 1 or 2 other people who will know where they are.

For the first year after gene therapy, participants will give blood samples 3 times (at 3, 6, and 12 months). For the next 4 years, they may have a physical exam and laboratory tests with a home physician. They will get a kit to mail in blood samples. Or they can visit the NIH Clinical Center. They will be asked if they have had any signs of neurological, autoimmune, or blood disorders, or any new cancers.

For years 6 to 15, participants will be contacted yearly via phone or email and asked questions about their health. They may give blood samples.

When the participant dies, if researchers think the death was caused by gene therapy, they will ask the participant s family to allow an autopsy.



The NCI ETIB Branch conducts clinical trials utilizing gene transfer. The current FDA requirements for long term follow up may be up to fifteen years for some products. As this time period is frequently longer than studies are expected to be open, a protocol is necessary to ensure the necessary follow up of these subjects


To facilitate collection of long term follow up information on subjects who have participated in gene transfer studies as required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory groups


Enrollment on a NCI ETIB treatment protocol for gene therapy.


Patients will undergo physical exams, laboratory evaluations and/or phone follow up as required by the treatment protocol and/or as clinically indicated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.

A malignancy arising in uterine cervical epithelium and confined thereto, representing a continuum of histological changes ranging from well-differentiated CIN 1 (formerly, mild dysplasia) to severe dysplasia/carcinoma in situ, CIN 3. The lesion arises at the squamocolumnar cell junction at the transformation zone of the endocervical canal, with a variable tendency to develop invasive epidermoid carcinoma, a tendency that is enhanced by concomitant human papillomaviral infection. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A premalignant change arising in the prostatic epithelium, regarded as the most important and most likely precursor of prostatic adenocarcinoma. The neoplasia takes the form of an intra-acinar or ductal proliferation of secretory cells with unequivocal nuclear anaplasia, which corresponds to nuclear grade 2 and 3 invasive prostate cancer.

A cytological test finding often from PAP SMEARS that shows abnormal lesions of SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS of the CERVIX. It is a diagnostic criterion used in the Bethesda System for UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS and represents the PAP TEST result that is abnormal. Although squamous intraepithelial lesions test result does not mean UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS it requires follow-ups (e.g., HPV DNA TESTS; and COLPOSCOPY).

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
