Could CAR-T Therapy Be Moving Into Lymphoma?

The use of T cells that are genetically engineered to express chimeric antigen receptor (CAR-T) has made headway as an approach to hematologic malignancies, with the best results achieved in leukemia. At the 2015 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, a preliminary...

SIDEBAR: The Ethical Imperative of Clinical Equipoise 

In her editorial about the RESONATE trial (page 1), Dr. O’Brien raises the issue of equipoise in this phase III clinical trial that compares the efficacy of ibrutinib and ofatumumab (Arzerra) in patients with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who are not appropriate...

Ibrutinib CLL Trial: Where Is the Equipoise?

The RESONATE trial is randomly assigning patients with refractory or relapsed CLL to either ofatumumab (Arzerra) or the investigational oral agent ibrutinib. Ofatumumab is an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody like rituximab (Rituxan), but is more potent as a single agent. It was approved for refractory ...
