CD19-targeted chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cell therapy has shown high response rates in patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL) and is now approved for the treatment of adult patients who have received at least two lines of systemic therapy. However, a considerable portion of patients still fail to achieve a complete response, with durable remissions observed in less than half of treated patients. In this webinar, we present analyses from the nCounter® Analysis System, exploring characteristics of the apheresis and infusion products, as well as the tumor microenvironment, that impact outcomes of CD19 CAR-T cell therapy for patients with LBCL.
