The Transcend CLL 004 Clinical Trial is looking for patients with relapsed or refractory CLL/SLL. The investigational treatment uses a “living drug” made up of our own immune cells, called T cells, that are genetically modified into chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells called JCAR017 that are programmed to recognize and attack CLL. This is very similar to the JCAR014 that I received and worked so well for me. For more information and eligibility, click https://www.centerwatch.com/XYOO/, but remember CAR-T therapy is still experimental and not for everyone. Take a look at my CAR-T blog for the up and downsides of this revolutionary therapy.
