Study Summary

This trial is testing a new way to fight cancer by genetically engineering patients' T cells to better target and kill their tumor cells.

Who is the study for?
Adults with certain solid tumors like liver cancer, who have tried standard treatments without success or can't receive them. They must be in relatively good health with a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks and adequate organ function. Pregnant individuals, those with HIV, active infections (except Hepatitis B/C), or history of organ transplant cannot participate.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing CATCH T cells, which are the patient's own immune cells genetically modified to target and kill cancer cells by recognizing a protein called GPC3 on tumor surfaces. The study aims to determine the highest safe dose, how long these cells last in the body, their side effects, and effectiveness against GPC3-positive tumors.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include reactions related to immune response such as fever or fatigue; risk of infection; possible damage to non-cancerous tissues that also carry the GPC3 protein; and other unforeseen complications due to genetic modification of T cells.
