Real-world evidence supports efficacy of and shows lower toxicity in Kymriah CAR-T Therapy

  • Two studies looking at patients with diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) were presented at ASH, looking at Novartis’ CAR-T therapy, Kymriah (tisagenlecleucel).
  • Both studies supported the pre-regulatory approval clinical trials data, with Kymriah achieving high response rates, and in fact saw fewer serious side effects, such as neurotoxicity.
  • This data bolsters Kymriah’s clinical profile as it challenges Gilead’s CAR-T, Yescarta (axicabtagene ciloleucel), also approved for DLBCL, for market share.
