How is CT053 different from other BCMA-directed CAR T-cell therapies?

CT053 consists of autologous T cells genetically modified with a CAR incorporating a fully human BCMA-specific single-chain fragment variant, a 4-1BB intracellular domain, and a CD3 intracellular signaling region. The advantage over other CAR T-cell therapies is that it has a shorter manufacturing time, of 8–10 days, which allows a shorter interval between apheresis and infusion. Learn about the results of an ongoing phase I/II trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of CT053 in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
