Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy mediates antigen-dependent and
-independent antitumor effects, and CAR T-cell activation of host antitumor immunity is critical for productive solid tumor CAR T immunotherapy.
Scott R. Solomon, MD, discusses the adverse events and pharmacokinetics of lisocabtagene maraleucel in 12 patients with relapsed/refractory large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma who had previously received anti-CD19 therapy.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology, Maria Lia Palomba, MD, a hematologic oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discussed the efficacy and safety of liso-cel in patients with R/R MCL as observed in the phase 1 TRANSCEND NHL 001 study.
Administering corticosteroids prior to chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy with axicabtagene ciloleucel in adult patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma may positively impact the benefit/risk profile of axi-cel treatment.
Tanya B. Dorff, MD, a medical oncologist at the City of Hope Cancer Center, discusses the reasoning behind using PSCA-targeted chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy and the design of this early study in an interview with Targeted Oncology.
The FDA has granted an accelerated approval to axicabtagene ciloleucel for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma who have received 2 or more prior lines of systemic therapy.
For the treatment of relapsed or refractory aggressive B-cell lymphomas, chimeric antigen receptor–modified T-cell therapy is becoming more widely used. Still, little is known about outcomes for patients who receive CAR-modified T-cell therapy beyond 2 years.
