Disease: B-cell Malignancy; B-cell Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, NHL, (NCT04035434)

Disease info:

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (also known as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, NHL, or sometimes just lymphoma) is a cancer that starts in white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the body’s immune system. NHL is a term that's used for many different types of lymphoma that all share some of the same characteristics. NHL usually starts in lymph nodes or other lymph tissue, but it can sometimes affect the skin. 

B-cell lymphoma refers to types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that are characterized by abnormalities of the "B-cells" (a type of white blood cell that makes antibodies to help fight infection). The condition may grow and spread slowly with few symptoms (also known as indolent lymphoma) or may be very aggressive with severe symptoms.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is one of the most common cancers in the United States, accounting for about 4% of all cancers. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2020 are: About 77,240 people (42,380 males and 34,860 females

Status: Active recruiting


This is a single-arm, open-label, multicenter, Phase 1 study evaluating the safety and efficacy of CTX110 in subjects with relapsed or refractory B-cell malignancies.

CTX110 is a CD19-directed chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell immunotherapy comprised of allogeneic T cells prepared for the treatment of B cell malignancies. The cells are from healthy adult volunteer donors that are genetically modified ex vivo using CRISPR-Cas9 (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/ CRISPR-associated protein 9) gene editing components (single guide RNA and Cas9 nuclease).
