KTE-C19, an investigational CAR T-cell therapy, recently demonstrated positive results for patients with chemorefractory aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Almost 80% of patients with treatment-refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma had objective responses following treatment with KTE-C19, a chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy targeting CD19.
The CAR T-cell therapy CTL019 demonstrated an 82% complete remission (CR) or CR with incomplete blood count recovery rate for pediatric and young adult patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Anti-CD22 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy induced an 80% complete remission rate among children and young adults with relapsed/refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, many of whom had prior anti-CD19 CAR T-cell therapy.
An investigational anti-BCMA chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy demonstrated an objective response rate of 78% in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
Standard treatment approaches for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia will continue to include fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab and allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
Patients with advanced lymphoid malignancies have had few treatment options, particularly those with extensive, refractory disease. Allogeneic or autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been one life-prolonging and potentially curative option for these patients, but these procedures are associated with various toxicities and are not appropriate for all patients, with older adults and those with great- er disease burden often excluded as candidates.
Novel agents being explored in the landscape of both peripheral and cutaneous T-cell lymphomas could lead to an expansion of treatment options for patients.
Treatment with KTE-C19 demonstrated an objective response rate of 79% and a complete remission rate of 52% for patients with aggressive, chemorefractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy targeting CD19 demonstrated a nearly 80% complete remission rate across relapsed/refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients with multiple levels of disease burden.
