Dr Yu Hu speaks to ecancer at the ASH 2019 meeting in Orlando about a study looking at the use of bispecific CAR T-cell therapy as treatment for hard to treat multiple myeloma.

Dr Hu explains that usually CAR T-cell therapies target one antigen but this new therapy can target two: Bcma and CD38.

He reports that the study demonstrated improved efficacy with a high overall response rate and also was effective in eliminating for extramedullary tumours.
