Riedell, MD, University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, IL, shares updates from the Phase III ZUMA-7 trial (NCT03391466) of the anti CD19 axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel), a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL).

This interview took place at the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress in Atlanta, GA.
