ASH 2018 | CD19 CAR T-cells plus ibrutinib in R/R CLL may improve response & decrease CRS

Jordan Gauthier

Jordan Gauthier, MD, of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA, presents the results of the comparison of the efficacy and toxicity of CD19-directed CAR T-cells alone or in combination with ibrutinib for relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). He highlights the conclusions that ibrutinib treatment rfom 2 weeks before leukapheresis until 3 months after JCAR014 was well tolerated in the majority of patients, and may decrease the incidence of severe cytokine release synfrome and improve response rates.
