L: English

  • Bechara Mfarrej discusses cytokine release syndrome (CRS) that is a potentially serious side-effect of CAR-T therapy. 
  • He explains that these side-effects are managed by supportive care but it is important to control the symptoms without eliminating the CAR-T cells.
  • Most toxicities are manageable with dedicated supportive care, he concluded, and cytokine blocking medication can be given in the most extreme cases.
