JW Therapeutics made new breakthrough in domestic CAR-T therapy

On 27 February 2022, JW Therapeutics (2126.HK), an innovative biotechnology company, announced that the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) had accepted its application for marketing (sNDA) of its autologous chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cellular immunotherapy product targeted at CD19, Carteyva® (relmacabtagene autoleucel injection), for the treatment of a new indication - relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (r/r FL).
