Clinical trial patient participant Bret Carroll, 52, of Appleton, Wisconsin, thanks Dr. Shah and the rest of his care team. When presented with the dual-targeted CAR-T cell immunotherapy clinical trial option in late 2017, Bret recognized it as the best opportunity to fight his mantle cell lymphoma and extend his life.

CART4_Margolis
Dr. Margolis said this clinical trial demonstrates the strength of collaboration among MCW, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital and the entire community. A separate pediatric clinical trial for CAR-T treatment is planned for later this year at Children's Hospital in the MACC Fund Center.

Dr. Bryon Johnson explained the CAR-T cell immunotherapy as "a search-and-destroy mission," in which the patient’s existing immune cells are modified to attack cancer cells.

CART6_Hari
Dr. Hari said the promising results of this clinical trial indicate a giant leap forward in personalized medicine. "Very few cancer centers anywhere offer the combination of resources and this high level of personalized medicine expertise," he said. "The encouraging results of the CAR-T cell trial positions us and our partners as a leader in clinical cancer care, and paves the way for more effective and efficient treatment options for patients."

Patient participant Bret Carroll spoke about his seven-year journey with mantle cell lymphoma and how just six weeks after receiving this new immunology treatment, the cancer was no longer detectable in his body.

We celebrated the collaborative efforts of physicians and researchers from MCW, Froedtert Hospital, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and BloodCenter of Wisconsin in successfully using chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy to extend the life of the clinical trial’s first participant. A press event was held in the new Hub for Collaborative Medicine on Feb. 1.

CAR-T Lymphocyte Propagation Laboratory

 

Fenlu Zhu, PhD, professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology and assistant director of the Lymphocyte Propagation Laboratory, and Bryon Johnson, PhD, professor of pediatrics in the division of Hematology and Oncology, explain how the CliniMACS Prodigy® device enables the cancer team to conduct the CAR-T cell immunotherapy through a contained, cell-filtering desktop system. The device collects the patient’s own T cells and augments them with cancer-fighting genes, producing new cells ready to be infused back into the bloodstream within 14 days. The entire process is performed in a laboratory on the Froedtert & MCW academic medical center campus, saving precious time for the patient.

 

MCW Historical Look Back

 

Fifty years ago, Milwaukee civic leaders issued an urgent call to preserve a medical school in Milwaukee, and build a comprehensive medical center. The history and process of the Medical College of Wisconsin and its partners is showcased in this historical look back.
