"[The patients] were really at the end of the line in terms of treatment options and yet a single dose of this therapy put more than ninety percent of these patients in complete remission where we can't detect any of these leukaemia cells."
But one cancer expert told me they still felt in the dark on the full significance of the study, as the data is not available.
Also seven of the patients developed cytokine release syndrome so severe that they required intensive care, and a further two patients died.
They only mention ALL by name but I wonder if this works for other leukemia's also? Could potentially be a better option for Blast Crisis patients over a BMT/SCT.
Apologies if this has already been discussed.
