Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to estimate the efficacy of axicabtagene ciloleucel in combination with rituximab, as measured by assessment of response rates in adult participants with relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Refractory Large B-cell Lymphoma Biological: Axicabtagene Ciloleucel Drug: Rituximab Drug: Fludarabine Drug: Cyclophosphamide Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Following at least 24 months of assessments after axicabtagene ciloleucel infusion, participants will be asked to rollover to a separate long-term follow-up study (Study KT-US-982-5968). Participants will complete the remainder of the 15-year follow-up assessments in the KT-US-982-5968 study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Response (CR) Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    CR rate is defined as the incidence of a CR per the Lugano Classification as determined by study investigators.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Experiencing Adverse Events and Clinically Significant Changes in Safety Lab Values [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]
  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    ORR is defined as the incidence of either a CR or a partial response (PR) per the Lugano Classification as determined by study investigators.

  3. Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    DOR is defined only for participants who experience an objective response and is the time from the first objective response to disease progression per the Lugano Classification as determined by study investigators or death from any cause.

  4. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    PFS is defined as the time from the axicabtagene ciloleucel infusion date to the date of disease progression per Lugano Classification as determined by study investigators or death from any cause.

  5. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]
    OS is defined as the time from axicabtagene ciloleucel infusion to the date of death.

  6. Levels of Axicabtagene Ciloleucel in Blood [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
