Brian T. Hill, MD, PhD, director of the Lymphoid Malignancies Program and staff physician, Taussig Cancer Institute, and assistant professor, Hematology and Oncology, Cleveland Clinic, discusses future research with CAR T-cell therapy in hematologic malignancies.

​In the B-cell lymphoma space, lisocabtagene maraleucel ​(liso-cel) appears to be associated with low rates of severe CAR T-cell therapy–related toxicities, ​Hill says.

Additionally, future research efforts should compare the efficacy and safety profiles of tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah), ​liso-cel, and axicabtagene ciloleucel (Yescarta), ​explains Hill. Further investigation may also shed light on subtle differences in the makeup of each product.

Ultimately, sorting out the unique characteristics ​of the 3 products will help the field identify which patients will benefit most from each ​therapy, Hill concludes.
