The purpose of the current study is to treat at least 3 ADA-SCID patients with OTL-101 prepared by the commercial manufacturing process.

Official Title

A Single Arm, Open Label Clinical Study to Enable Process Validation of Commercial Grade Ex Vivo Hematopoietic Stem Cell Gene Therapy (OTL-101) in Subjects With Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Due to Adenosine Deaminase Deficiency (ADA-SCID)


The safety and efficacy of OTL-101 for the treatment of patients with ADA- SCID have been established in previous clinical trials. The purpose of the current study is to treat at least 3 ADA-SCID patients with OTL-101 prepared by the commercial manufacturing process in order to facilitate collection of data necessary for final manufacturing. Assessments will focus on monitoring safety and engraftment, through the evaluation of parameters describing immunological recovery, ADA enzyme activity and persistence of gene marking (VCN) at 6 months and 12 months. After completion of 12 months of follow-up on the current study protocol, subjects will be enrolled in an observational long-term follow-up study, in order to monitor the long-term safety of treatment with OTL-101.

  • Provision of written informed consent by the subject or parent(s)/legal guardian(s), prior to any study related procedures taking place. Where consent is provided by the parent(s)/legal guardian(s), assent by the subject should also be sought, if appropriate
  • Age ≥30 days and <18 years
  • Diagnosis of ADA-SCID based on either:
  • 1) Evidence of ADA deficiency, defined as Decreased ADA enzymatic activity in erythrocytes, leukocytes, skin fibroblasts, or in cultured fetal cells to levels consistent with ADA-SCID as determined by the reference laboratory OR Identified mutations in ADA alleles consistent with a severe reduction in ADA activity
  • 2) Evidence of ADA-SCID, defined as Family history of a first order relative with ADA deficiency and clinical and laboratory evidence of severe immunologic deficiency OR Evidence of severe immunologic deficiency in subjects prior to the institution of immune restorative therapy, based on at least one of the following:
  • Lymphopenia (absolute lymphocyte count <400 cells/μL) OR absence or low number of T cells (absolute CD3+ count < 300 cells/μL)
  • Severely decreased T lymphocyte blastogenic responses to phytohemagglutinin (either <10% of lower limit of normal controls for the diagnostic laboratory, or <10% of the response of the normal control of the day, or stimulation index <10)
  • Identification of SCID by neonatal screening revealing low T cell receptor excision circles (TREC) levels
  • Ineligible for allogeneic bone marrow transplantation from an Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical sibling donor, with normal immune function
  • For females of child-bearing potential, negative pregnancy test up to 30 days prior to the Screening visit. For all subjects in the reproductive age range, agreement to use highly effective and adequate method of contraception while receiving treatment and for at least 12 months following drug administration
  • Willingness and ability of the subjects and parent(s)/legal guardian(s) to comply with study procedures and requirements, including remaining at the clinic for the required duration of conditioning and treatment and compliance with follow-up evaluations
