Dr Jordan Gauthier speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about a comparison of efficacy and toxicity of CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor T-cells alone or in combination with ibrutinib for relapsed and/or refractory chronic lymphatic leukaemia.

He describes the methods and findings of the study, as well as the potential impact of the research.

Dr Gauthier explains how this is a relatively small trial, and so this research should be expanded in the future.
