CAR-T Cell Therapy: Current Uses and Future Possibilities

CAR-T Cell Therapy: Current Uses and Future Possibilities

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy is a promising new immunotherapy for certain cancers of the blood, providing long-lasting responses for some patients. It genetically modifies T cells to make them specific for cancer cell markers and activates the immune system to destroy cancer cells. Physicians with the CAR-T cell therapy program at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, will discuss current uses and potential future applications. Mayo Clinic’s program includes an in-house cell manufacturing facility for developing new cutting-edge trials.
