Dr Michael Bishop speaks to ecancer about the analysis of the phase III Belinda study.
This study investigates tisagenlecleucel vs standard of care as second-line therapy of primary refractory or relapsed aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Initially, he talks about the background of the study. Dr Bishop then discusses the methods and results of this study.
He says that tisa-cel as 2nd line treatment in R/R aNHL patients did not have a higher event-free survival vs standard of care.
He concludes by saying that results from this randomised phase III study will inform use of cellular treatment in the 2L R/R aNHL setting and the design of future CAR-T trials.
