The high durable response rates seen with CAR T-cell therapies have helped fill a high unmet need for patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), with questions remaining on the optimal way to use these agents following the FDA approval of 2 therapies in the past year.

“CAR T cells are making a big dent in this space but they’re not curing everyone, so we need to do more work to find additional treatment strategies for these patients,” concluded Younes.
