Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy may soon be a treatment option for patients with multiple myeloma, according to leading experts. CAR T-cells, which are immune cells genetically modified to target cancer antigens, are already FDA-approved for the treatment of patients with leukemia and lymphoma, conditions in which CAR T-cell therapy can achieve long-term disease control.
