CAR T-Cell Immunotherapy in HER2 Positive Breast Cancer With Brain or Leptomeningeal Metastases

A Phase 1 Cellular Immunotherapy Study of Intraventricularly Administered Autologous HER2-Targeted Chimeric Antigen Receptor (HER2-CAR) T Cells in Patients With Brain and/or Leptomeningeal Metastases From HER2 Positive Cancers Scientific Title

To study the safety, best dose, and effects (good and bad) of a CAR T-cell immunotherapy that is delivered directly into the brain.
Who is this for?
People with metastatic (stage IV) HER2 positive (HER2+) breast cancer that has spread to the brain or to the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (leptomeningeal metastases).    Full eligibility criteria
