Loc3CAR Trial: Innovative Treatment Hope for Pediatric CNS Tumors

The Loc3CAR Phase I clinical trial (NCT05835687) is an exciting development in the treatment of pediatric primary central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms. It focuses on the use of autologous B7-H3-CAR T cells, delivered directly to the CNS via a specialized catheter. The study comprises two cohorts: cohort A, which includes patients with B7-H3-positive relapsed or refractory non-brainstem primary CNS tumors, and cohort B, for those with high-grade neoplasms in the brainstem.

Participants in the trial will undergo six B7-H3-CAR T cell infusions over an 8-week period. Importantly, this treatment is administered without lymphodepleting chemotherapy. The primary objectives of the study are to assess the safety and determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of B7-H3-CAR T cells. The trial will utilize a 3+3 study design and an 8-week evaluation period. The entire study will span one year, after which patients will transition to an established long-term follow-up protocol.

This innovative trial offers hope for pediatric patients with primary CNS tumors, including atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors, diffuse midline gliomas with H3 K27M mutations, and ependymomas. It represents a promising avenue in the quest for improved treatment options for these challenging conditions.
