Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy with the novel agent CTX110 showed promising early efficacy and safety as treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory CD19-positive B-cell malignancies who were treated in the phase 1 CARBON clinical trial.
In the past 5 years, 3 new options have emerged to treat patients with relapsed/
refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia, providing hope for patients with this disease
but also raising clinical questions.
The FDA granted Orphan Drug designation to the humanized anti-claudin18.2 autologous chimeric antigen receptor T-cell agent, CT041, for the treatment of patients with gastric and gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology, Tanja Gruber, MD, PhD, discussed the advances she has observed in recent years for the treatment of pediatric patients, including the evolving role of CAR T-cell therapy.
During a presentation at the 2020 Society of Hematologic Oncology Virtual Annual Meeting, Andrzej Jakubowiak, MD, PhD, reviewed clinical trials of CAR T-cell therapy in multiple myeloma and the emergence of CAR T cells against SMALF7, GPRC5D, and CD229.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology, David E. Gilham, PhD, discussed the findings from the single vector multiplexed short-hairpin RNA approach to concurrently knockdown the expression of multiple genes in chimeric antigen receptor T cells when used as treatment of patients with cancer.
