CAR-T therapy

short for “chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy,” represents a milestone in individualized cell immunotherapy for human cancers. It involves collecting the patient’s T-cells, genetically modifying them ex vivo to enhance their ability to recognize tumor cells specifically. These engineered “armed” T-cells (CAR-T cells) are then infused back into the patient to target and destroy tumor cells, while also forming memory T-cells for sustained anti-tumor effects. China has approved CAR-T therapy for lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and acute leukemia. The treatment process includes patient screening, bridging therapy, adverse reaction management, and long-term follow-up, requiring close collaboration among various teams, including hematology, cardiology, respiratory medicine, neurology, ICU, and experienced nursing teams.

 

The patient

an Australian residing in Shanghai, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2008. Despite undergoing various treatments, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and autologous stem cell transplantation, he unfortunately relapsed in 2022 with severe pain and bone damage. But due to the exorbitant cost of treatment in the United States, he has not been able to receive effective treatment.

BCMA-CAR-T

In July 2023, the BCMA-targeted Equecabtagene Autoleucel Injection developed by IASO Biotech was approved for marketing, specifically for the treatment of relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma adult patients who have undergone at least 3 prior lines of therapy. However, the price is only one-third of the treatment cost in the United States.

After consultation with Director Li Hua and Dr. Zhou Lili from the Hematology Team at Jiahui International Hospital, he decided to undergo this cutting-edge treatment at Jiahui. Throughout the treatment process, he continued working without interruption, only taking leave in the last three weeks for cell infusion, and the entire process went smoothly.

Choosing Jiahui International Hospital for CAR-T treatment not only avoided the hassle of extensive travel but also provided access to international standard medical services, efficient and convenient services, advanced therapies, and state-of-the-art facilities.

 

Since the approval of Chinese CAR-T therapy

China has established many high-level international CAR-T treatment teams, and more and more foreign and domestic hematologic tumor patients have chosen China for CAR-T treatment, including foreign lymphoma and multiple myeloma patients who have completed treatment and been discharged, as well as many patients from abroad who urgently need CAR-T treatment.

In the future, China will continue to explore innovative concepts and technologies for the clinical application, bringing new hope for cure to more hematologic tumor patients.
