Description

Αxicabtagene ciloleucel, an engineered autologous T-cell immunotherapy product, binds to CD19 expressing cancer cells and normal B cells. Following anti-CD19 CAR T-cell engagement with CD19 expressing target cells, a sequence of events leads to apoptosis and necrosis of CD19-expressing target cells. Αxicabtagene ciloleucel is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and primary mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma (PMBCL), after two or more lines of systemic therapy.
