In 10 seconds? Scientists are using tons of ingenious methods to produce next-generation CAR-T cells that provide hope that this therapy may have improved success against solid tumors in the future.
What’s the story? In our last Immunity vs Cancer digest we talked about CAR-T cells and their success against B cell cancers – i.e. blood cancers. But the big win would be if they could be successfully deployed against solid tumors (AKA most cancers). Unfortunately, progress has yet to be seen in this field. But, momentum continues and scientists are working hard to ensure that CAR-T cells can wipe out blood cancers and solid tumors alike.
