Bijal D. Shah, MD
Published: Thursday, May 25, 2017



Bijal D. Shah, MD, medical oncology, of Moffit Cancer Center, discusses the status of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

The first FDA approval will likely be in pediatric ALL, Shah says. However, in the adult patients with ALL, researchers are closely behind.

However, several pharmaceutical companies have been entering the space and are actively conducting clinical trials with these agents. These therapies have the ability to produce durable remissions and improve survival, Shah says.
