CAR T-cell Therapy Shows Promise for Patients with Leukemia/Lymphoma

Show: (March 19, 2018)

Adoptive cell transfer (ACT) is an emerging approach to immunotherapy by which patients' own immune cells are collected and used to treat their cancer. There are several types of ACT, but the one that seems to be closest to producing an FDA-approved treatment is chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy.

Leading this panel discussion regarding the risks and benefits of CAR T-cell therapy are UAB Medicine hematology/oncology physicians Amitkumar N. Mehta, MD, and Luciano J. Costa, MD.
