Treatment with CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T-cell therapy induced a high response rate in patients with high-risk, ibrutinib-refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), according to results recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

CAR-T cells/kg. Neurotoxicity was reversible in all other patients.
