Results with TECARTUS®
62% of patients achieved complete remission, seeing a disappearance of all signs of cancer. This does not always mean the cancer has been cured
25% of patients achieved partial remission, experiencing a decrease in the amount of cancer within the body
TECARTUS can help you achieve remission
in as little as 1 month after treatment
TECARTUS was studied in patients with mantle cell lymphoma whose prior treatment either didn’t work or had stopped working. In the clinical study of 60 patients, 87% saw a decrease in cancer after being followed for about 12.3 months. Many of these patients responded to treatment in as little as 1 month (range 0.8 to 3.1 months).
TECARTUS uses your own immune system to fight mantle cell lymphoma
HOW TECARTUS WORKS
It starts with your own T cells
Your immune system has different types of white blood cells, all working together to keep you healthy. One type of white blood cell, called the T cell, has the very important job of finding and destroying things that can harm your body, like infection or cancer. In some cases, however, your T cells aren't able to recognize cancer cells.
TECARTUS helps your T cells do the job they were meant to do
The TECARTUS treatment process takes your own T cells and modifies them with a special connector called a chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR. With just one TECARTUS infusion, millions of CAR T cells are put into your body, giving it a better ability to recognize and destroy cancer cells.
