Transcript

What CAR T therapies do you see coming down the pipeline and how do they differ from each other?

That's a loaded question; there's a lot. For the currently approved products, we're learning to use them earlier in lines of care. For the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma population, those indications, and second-line therapy should be coming anytime in the next week to the next couple of months.

Then, we are looking at expanding indications to larger disease states. Obviously, we've had a lot of great approvals with the multiple myeloma products. That recent approval was just on February 28, so I think myeloma is good for a little bit.

In terms of CAR T specifically, for immune effector cells, the bispecifics are the next thing that we're really excited about. We're also looking at allogeneic CAR T products, which are off the shelf, which would really significantly decrease the manufacturing time that we are challenged with at this point.
