The purpose of this research study is to test whether giving T-cells (type of white blood cell that are also known as immune cells) that have been specially processed in the laboratory will help chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients' immune system return to normal faster after chemotherapy. This research study will also look into the ability of the lab to process the T-cells for infusion and the side effects of giving T-cells to patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
Single arm, multi-center trial to evaluate the efficacy of administering CD3/CD28 stimulated T cells to chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients following treatment with fludarabine or alemtuzumab based chemo- immunotherapy. All patients will undergo an apheresis to collect peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) for generation of expanded T cells post- chemo-immunotherapy. Those subjects who achieve a complete or partial response to the chemoimmunotherapy based regimen will receive an infusion of 1.0 x 1010 (+/- 20%) activated autologous T cells expanded from the collected apheresis unit. Prior to T-cell infusion, at Day +30, +60, and +365 after T cell infusion, blood draws will be performed to assess immune reconstitution and immune function as compared to baseline.

A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
A chronic leukemia characterized by a large number of circulating prolymphocytes. It can arise spontaneously or as a consequence of transformation of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
The natural ligand for the T-cell antigen CD28; (ANTIGENS, CD28); mediating T- and B-cell adhesion. CD80 is expressed on activated B-cells and gamma-interferon-stimulated monocytes. The binding of CD80 to CD28 and CTLA-4 provides a co-stimulatory signal to T-cells and leads to greatly upregulated lymphokine production.
A lymphoid leukemia characterized by a profound LYMPHOCYTOSIS with or without LYMPHADENOPATHY, hepatosplenomegaly, frequently rapid progression, and short survival. It was formerly called T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
A pathologic change in leukemia in which leukemic cells permeate various organs at any stage of the disease. All types of leukemia show various degrees of infiltration, depending upon the type of leukemia. The degree of infiltration may vary from site to site. The liver and spleen are common sites of infiltration, the greatest appearing in myelocytic leukemia, but infiltration is seen also in the granulocytic and lymphocytic types. The kidney is also a common site and of the gastrointestinal system, the stomach and ileum are commonly involved. In lymphocytic leukemia the skin is often infiltrated. The central nervous system too is a common site.
