Eric Smith, MD, PhD, medical oncologist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses CD19 (19-28Z) chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL).

In a study of adult patients with relapsed/refractory B-ALL, investigators aimed to identify patients who would benefit from 19-28z CAR T-cell therapy, measured by durable long-term survival and reduced toxicities.

Results showed that the complete remission rate was 85% in this typically poor-prognosis setting.
