Advanced CAR T-Cell Leukemia Therapy in Israel

Sheba’s Hemato-Oncology Department is one of only a few medical facilities in the world to offer this revolutionary treatment for blood cancer. CAR T T-cell therapy programs the patient’s own altered white blood cells to kill cancer cells. It has led to many positive outcomes, putting cancer into remission in many patients who did not respond to other treatment methods. CAR T T-cell therapy is highly specialized and personalized to consider each individual’s unique needs and overall well-being. The number of adults who have undergone the CAR T-cell therapy at Sheba:

  • ALL – 27
  • MM – 60
  • NHL – 280
  • AML – 6
  • Advanced CAR-T Leukemia Therapy in Israel

    Who Can Have CAR T-Cell Treatment?

    Potential patients need to have undergone at least two prior treatments. The CAR T-cell protocol requires hospitalization for at least two weeks, but same patients may need a longer observation period.
    Great success has been achieved in young patients with CAR T-cell treatment. The following are the rates of complete recovery with this therapy:

    • 85-90% in young children
    • Approximately 80% in teenagers
    • Around 70% in the entire patient population

    Of course, Sheba continues to strive to further improve these rates through continuous research and retaining the best physicians.

    Sheba is excited to announce that it now offers the innovative CAR T-cell therapy for patients with Multiple Myeloma and is the first medical center in the world to pioneer its application for Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) with 8:21 translocation and CD19 expression as part of a clinical study.

    We also offer a full diagnostic procedure to determine whether this treatment is a suitable option for a patient.
