Some medical centers are investigating CAR T-cell therapies that have not yet been approved by the FDA. These therapies may be available to you if you agree to participate in a clinical trial testing their safety and effectiveness.
For example, some centers are researching whether using CAR T-cells that are made from T-cells provided by a donor, rather than the patient, is a safe and effective treatment for patients.
To find a list of CAR T-cell therapy clinical trials, go to the Be The Match® Jason Carter Clinical Trial Program or the the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Clinical Trial Support Center,
The National Institute's of Health ClinicalTrials.gov website also provides information about CAR T-cell clinical trials that are currently recruiting participants.
