CAR T Therapy

Beaudin completed CAR T Therapy at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in March 2021. Unfortunately the T cells did not persist and were showing return on Day 28.

In August 2021, Beaudin returned to Philadelphia for a Humanized CAR T trial. That round lasts for 4 months before the T cells began to fade in December 2022. He received a cell boost in January 2022 that was unsuccessful.

We have chosen to take a “wait and watch” approach as he has been NED since right before the original CAR T in Spring 2021.
