Novel adoptive cell transfer method shortens timeline for T-cell manufacture — ScienceDaily

Adoptively transferred T-cells can prolong survival and sometimes cure patients with advanced solid tumors. While promising, it can take months to generate the necessary T-cells to help these patients. Such slow speed makes this therapy impractical for most patients who need immediate treatment. In the September issue of Cancer Research, Hannah Knochelmann, a student in […]
