At a median follow-up of 13.1 months, tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah) induced an overall remission rate of 81% in children and young adults with relapsed/refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).1
Among all infused patients, the relapse-free survival rate was 75% at 6 months and 64% at 9 and 12 months. OS was 89% at 6 months and 79% at 9 and 12 months. Median OS was 16.6 months.
