National Harbor, MD – SITC 2017 wouldn’t be the same without an in-interview with Dr Stephan Grupp (CHOP) on the issues surrounding the Juno ROCKET trial and CAR T cell therapy safety.
This data has been eagerly awaited and anticipated by the field since the news of a cluster of lethal cerebral oedemas hit Juno in the summer 2016, seemingly out of the blue.
Yesterday, we reviewed the salient points from Dr Mark Gilbert (CMO) presentation highlighting their findings from the in-depth analyses performed to date.
In the second part we turn to a CAR T cell therapist with experience in treating children and young adults for his perspectives and candid reactions to the information presented.
We also talk about where the field is headed and some of the new developments we can look forward to hearing more about in the near to medium term future.
