Brief Summary

This is a single-center, open label, single dose study of anti CD30 CAR-T cells injection in treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory CD30+ lymphoma.

Detailed Description

This study is a single-center, open-label, single dose study of anti CD30 CAR-T cells injection in treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory CD30+ lymphoma.

This study intends to include CD30-positive patients with relapsed/refractory CD30+ lymphoma, and subjects will receive a single injection of anti CD30 CAR-T cells after screening, Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cell (PBMC) collection, and lymphodepletion chemotherapy pretreatment. Response assessments for lymphoma subjects will base on 2018 Lugano Classification.

Arms and Interventions

Experimental: Anti CD30 CAR T cells

Patients receive anti CD30 CAR-T cells on day 0 after lymphodepleting treatment. Route of administration: Intravenous injection. Lymphodepletion conditioning: Lymphodepletion will be conducted several days prior to anti CD30 CAR-T cells infusion.

Biological: Anti CD30 CAR-T Cell Injection
After enrollment, subjects complete the apheresis, then complete the lymphodepletion, and then receive the dose escalation test: 1.5×10^7 cells,1.5×10^8 cells,5× 10^8 cells. Drug: Fludarabine Fludarabine is used for lymphodepletion. Drug: Cyclophosphamide Cyclophosphamide is used for lymphodepletion
