CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) T-cell therapy is a type of immunotherapy. It uses a person’s own genetically modified T cells to find and kill cancer cells.
UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is one of a small group of children's hospitals that offers this treatment.
We use KYMRIAH®, an FDA-approved CAR T-cell therapy for children and young adults with relapsed or refracted B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
T-cells are a type of white blood cell that can fight infection and disease. When a T-cell sees something as a threat — like a virus — it attacks and destroys it to keep the body healthy.
The goal of CAR T-cell therapy is to direct engineered T-cells to attack and destroy cancer cells.
During CAR T-cell therapy, doctors:
CAR T-cell therapy can cause serious side effects. Your child will stay with us for one to two weeks after the infusion so we can watch for any issues.
To refer a patient for CAR T-cell therapy at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, call 412-692-6740.
