Bloom Family Chair in Lymphoma Research, and program director of the USC Norris Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, co-leader of the Molecular Genetics Program, University of Southern California, discusses the short-term and long-term future of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells.

The short-term goal of the CAR T-cell products is to achieve regulatory approval and to become available to a wider group of physicians. These products do have toxicities but are desperately needed, explains Chaudhary.

In the long term, due to toxicities, there is a need for researchers to go back and come up with a new design to make it safer for wider communities, explains Chaudhary.
