Dr Karl Kilgore speaks to ecancer at the 2019 ASH meeting in Orlando about the real-world use of CAR T-cell therapy in medicare patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

He describes this study which investigated the costs, outcomes and healthcare utilisation in these patients before and after they received CAR T-cell therapy, as well as their demographic and clinical characteristics.

Dr Kilgore emphasises that the results of this study strongly show that older patients with co-morbidities can be successfully treated with this type of therapy
