Kite Pharma

About Us

Our first cell therapy treatments are built on CAR T (chimeric antigen receptor T cell) technology, which uses genetically modified immune cells to target cancer cells. In 2017, we were acquired by Gilead Sciences, Inc., and this partnership has rapidly accelerated the advancement of our pipeline, including the launch of our first cell therapy, Yescarta® or Axi-Cel (axicabtagene cilo┬Čleucel), a CAR T therapy to treat certain types of relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Together with Gilead, we have acquired additional technologies to support the development of next-generation cell therapies.
