CAR T-cell therapy has revolutionized the treatment of refractory lymphoma. This groundbreaking immunotherapy also shows great promise for treating other types of blood cancer as well as certain solid tumors. As a world-renowned pioneer of many novel cancer therapies, Moffitt Cancer Center is spearheading the development of CAR-T clinical trials nationwide. Working in conjunction with cancer centers across the U.S., we have achieved many significant research breakthroughs and continue to make progress in our fight against cancer every single day.
Moffitt is especially proud to have made Yescarta available to the first patient in the world following its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Yescarta is only the second gene therapy to be approved by the FDA as well as the first treatment of its kind to be approved for treating certain types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
