    ORR is defined as the percentage of participants with a best overall disease response of complete remission (CR) or Complete remission with incomplete blood count recovery (CRi), where the best overall disease response is defined as the best disease response recorded from CTL019 infusion until the start of new anticancer therapy. Best response was assigned in the following order: CR, CRi, CR or CRi with residual mediastinal disease, No response and Unknown.

Women who are not yet of reproductive potential are to agree to use acceptable forms of contraception when they reach reproductive potential if within 1 year of CTL019 or if CAR cells are present in the blood by PCR. Acceptable documentation includes written or oral documentation communicated by clinician or clinician's staff of one of the following:

  1. Demographics show age < 11
  2. Physical examination indicates Tanner Stage 1
