Gene Therapy to Activate 4-1BBL and to Target CD19 for B-Cell Malignancies overview

Gene therapy is under development for the treatment of B cell malignancies including relapsed or refractory B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and B-cell lymphomas including non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL), diffuse large b-cell lymphoma, transformed B-cell lymphoma, or high grade B-cell lymphoma, relapsed and refractory acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), chronic myelocytic leukemia (CML) and Burkitt Lymphoma. It is administered through intravenous route. The therapy comprises of autologous T-lymphocytes genetically modified to express a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) targeting the B-cell antigen CD19 and armored with 4-1BBL (CD137L) transduced with retroviral vector. The therapy is developed based on the CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) and TCR (T cell receptors) technology platforms.
