Impact of rituximab and corticosteroids on late cytopenias post chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy
Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR T-cell) therapy represents a paradigm shift in the treatment of relapsed and/or refractory (R/R) B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
