Shaji Kumar, ASH 2020 – Highlights from ASH 2020
It was a pleasure to speak with our Editor-in-Chief, Shaji Kumar (Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA) to discuss the use of MEDI2228 (Clinical Trial Identifier: NCT03489525) and anti-BCMA CAR-T cells (Clinical Trial Identifier: NCT03915184) in the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma and to find out his personal highlights from this year’s congress.
The abstracts ‘Phase 1, First-in-Human Study of MEDI2228, a BCMA-Targeted ADC in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma‘ (ABSTRACT NUMBER: 179) and ‘Results from Lummicar-2: A Phase 1b/2 Study of Fully Human B-Cell Maturation Antigen-Specific CAR T Cells (CT053) in Patients with Relapsed and/or Refractory Multiple Myeloma‘ (ABSTRACT NUMBER: 133) were presented at the virtual 62nd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition, 5-8 December, 2020.
