  7. Duration of remission (DOR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    DOR is defined as the time from the first documented CR or Partial Remission (PR) to the date of the first documented progressive disease(PD) or death due to any cause.

  8. Relapse-free survival (RFS) [ Time Frame: 24 Months ]
    RFS is defined as the time from the documented CR or PR after the CNCT19 infusion to the date of the documented PD or death due to any cause.

  9. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    OS is defined as the time from the signing of informed consent form to the date of the last survival follow-up or death due to any cause.
