Description

Summary

The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of brexucabtagene autoleucel (KTE-X19) in pediatric and adolescent participants with relapsed/refractory (r/r) B-precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or relapsed or refractory (r/r) B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
