ciltacabtagene autoleucel

This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Carvykti is a medicine used to treat adults with multiple myeloma (a cancer of the bone marrow) when the cancer has come back (relapsed) and has not responded to treatment (refractory).

It is used in adults who have received at least three prior therapies, including an immunomodulatory agent, a proteasome inhibitor and an anti‑CD38 antibody and whose disease has worsened since the last treatment.

Multiple myeloma is rare, and Carvykti was designated an ‘orphan medicine’ (a medicine used in rare diseases) on 28 February 2020. Further information on the orphan designation can be found here:

Carvykti contains the active substance ciltacabtagene autoleucel, consisting of genetically modified white blood cells.
