Veit Buecklein, MD, LMU Munich, Munich, Germany, comments on real-world evidence comparing CD19 CAR-T cell therapy outcomes in patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL) in Europe and the US. Investigators observed significantly lower progression-free survival (PFS) in the European group, as well as significantly reduced radiographic response. Potential reasons for these differences included an adverse risk profile in European patients, logistical challenges resulting in longer vein-to-vein times, and the more frequent use of tisagenlecleucel (tisa-cel) over axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel). This interview took place at the 64th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress held in New Orleans, LA.
