ASH: Novartis rolls out early data for a pair of 'second-gen' CAR-Ts with more productive cells delivered faster
The current generation of cell therapies has proven a game changer in terms of treating aggressive blood cancers, but the tech has its limitations. Novartis, one of the biggies in the current generation of these drugs, is now taking lessons learned from CAR-T Kymriah to supercharge a “second-generation” of CAR-Ts putting superior cells into patients faster.
Novartis on Monday rolled out early Phase I data for a pair of autologous CAR-T cell therapies developed through the drugmaker’s T-Charge platform, a process designed to promote T cell “stemness” — a measure of a cell’s ability to self-renew — by cutting manufacturing times and spurring cell proliferation primarily in patients’ lymph nodes.
