NCI’s James N. Kochenderfer, MD, Receives Clinical Research Achievement Award

James N. Kochenderfer, MD, Investigator in the Surgery Branch of the National Cancer Institute has been named a Top Ten Clinical Research Achievement Awardee by the Clinical Research Forum. Dr. Kochenderfer received the award for his research into the development of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) ...

Steven A. Rosenberg, MD, PhD, Works to Unmask Cancer’s Achilles Heel

Steven A. Rosenberg, MD, PhD, knew from the start of his medical career that if treatments for cancer were to become curative, research in new therapies would have to move away from the mainstay one-size-fits-all approach of systemic chemotherapy to an innovative, personalized strategy that...

CAR T Cells Targeting B-Cell Maturation Antigen in Poor-Prognosis Relapsed Multiple Myeloma

In a first-in-human study reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Brudno et al found that chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) autologous T cells targeting B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) produced responses in patients with poor-prognosis relapsed multiple myeloma. Study Details The current...

Unique CAR T-Cell Construct Studied in Multiple Myeloma

CD19-DIRECTED chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of leukemia (tisagenlecleucel [Kymriah]) and lymphoma (axicabtagene ciloleucel [Yescarta]), but another type of CAR T-cell therapy is generating interest as a...

ASH 2017: Clinical Activity Seen With Anti-BCMA CAR T-Cell Therapy in Heavily Pretreated Multiple Myeloma

A one-time infusion of an investigational chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy that targets a protein found on most multiple myeloma cells elicited an 86% overall response rate in 21 patients whose disease had come back or had not responded after a median of seven prior treatments,...

Interleukin-15 Levels Associated With Lymphoma Response to CAR T-Cell Treatment

As reported by Kochenderfer et al in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, remission in patients with advanced lymphoma induced by treatment with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells targeting CD19 (CAR-19) is associated with elevated serum interleukin-15 (IL-15) levels. Study Details The study...

CAR-T Cell Therapy May Have Role in Treating Multiple Myeloma

Among the burgeoning options for treating multiple myeloma could be an approach that is proving to be exciting in leukemia: CAR-T (chimeric antigen receptor T cells) therapy. Preliminary results of the first-in-humans study in myeloma were presented as a late-breaking abstract at the 2015 ASH...

Mounting Success in Trials of Genetically Engineered T Cells to Treat Leukemias and Lymphomas

Reports have been trickling in from centers conducting research on the use of chimeric antigen receptor–modified T cells (CAR-T) in hematologic cancer, and the news is encouraging. When directed against CD19, such personalized therapeutic T cells are known as CTL019, and small pilot trials of this...

James N. Kochenderfer, MD, on Preventing Progressive Malignancy After Stem Cell Transplant

James N. Kochenderfer, MD, of the National Cancer Institute, discusses a clinical trial of allogeneic T cells expressing an anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor, which caused remissions of B-cell cancers after stem cell transplant, without causing graft-vs-host disease (Abstract LBA1).
