Prof Mohamad Mohty speaks to ecancer at the 2019 European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting about the promising CAR T-cell therapy for acute leukaemia patients.

He explains that a substantial proportion of acute lymphocytic leukaemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients are cured after this treatment.

Prof Mohty believes that the major issue currently faced is a lack of 'persistence' of these cells, but there are many different possibilities that can improve this.
