Gene-Modified Immune Cells (FH-MCVA2TCR) in Treating Patients With Metastatic or Unresectable Merkel Cell Cancer

ATTAC-MCC: Phase I/II study of Autologous CD8+ and CD4+ Transgenic T cells expressing high affinity MCPyV-specific TCRs combined with Avelumab and Class I MHC -upregulation in patients with metastatic MCC refractory to PD-1 axis blockade

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects of gene-modified immune cells (FH-MCVA2TCR) and to see how well they work in treating patients with Merkel cell cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic) or that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Placing a gene that has been created in the laboratory into immune cells may improve the body's ability to fight Merkel cell cancer.
