CAR T-Cell Immunotherapy for  Recurrent/Refractory Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) 

Phase II Clinical Trial (ZUMA-2)

CAR-T treatments show promising results in a number of blood cancers, including Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHLs). In-fact, the FDA already approved a CAR-T product for a 'relative' of MCL- the Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma. Based on some-what slimier expression of antigens between the different types of B cell NHL, CAR-T is now being evaluated for other NHL types also- including MCL. 

Clinical trials evaluating CAR-T for MCL patients are scarce when compared to other types of NHLs. Partly due to the rarity of this type of disease and the relatively recent 'clinical discovery' of CAR-T  treatments.
