Axicabtagene ciloleucel (Yescarta)

About This Drug

Axicabtagene ciloleucel is used to treat cancer. It is made using your own T-cells, a type of white blood cell. Your T-cells will be collected via leukopheresis, a procedure that circulates your blood through a machine and removes some of your T-cells. Your collected T-cells are then genetically modified and grown. Axicabtegene ciloleucel contains your modified T-cells and is given to you through the vein (IV).
