Miguel-Angel Perales, MD, deputy chief, Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Service, director, Adult Bone Marrow Transplantation Fellowship Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the remaining questions with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in hematologic malignancies.

Perales explains that one of the remaining questions with this therapy is regarding multiple drugs being approved in the same indication.

For example, the data coming out of the Kite Pharma, Novartis, and Juno trials in lymphoma look very similar, says Perales. Response rates in all 3 trials come in around 40% to 50%.
