Full TitleA Phase 2, Open-Label, Single-Arm, Multicohort, Multicenter Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of JCAR017 in Adult Subjects with Relapsed or Refractory Indolent B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) (Transcend FL)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a novel treatment for people with follicular lymphoma or marginal zone lymphoma that has continued to grow or came back despite prior therapy. The treatment involves removing some of a patient’s immune cells called T cells, genetically modifying and growing them in a laboratory, and then returning them to the patient to find and kill lymphoma cells.
The new modified T cells are called JCAR017 cells and are given back to the patient intravenously (by vein). This approach is a form of immunotherapy.
