CAR T-Cell Research is surging accompanied by a diversification of development and manufacturing pathways.

Hundreds of trials are under way, 3 CAR T-cell therapies for hematologic malignancies are on the market, and 2 new products may receive FDA approval in the next several months, including a BCMA–directed therapy that is poised to help transform treatment of multiple myeloma Research on chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapies has exploded since

The Most Logical Approach to Improve CAR T Cell Therapy: a preview on Cell Systems

Combinational antigen recognition is the most logical way to improve the safety of cancer therapy. CAR T cells therapy, combined with synthetic biology, protein engineering, and bioinformatics, can perform advanced computations to enhance tumor targeting specificity. Immunotherapy, including biologic and cellular approaches, is a critical area of focus for cancer therapeutics. Of the methodologies used

For an Oxford University research, videogaming is positively correlated with well-being. RESTORE consortium videogame “Fragments of Life” helps to enter into CAR-T Cells breakthrough therapy in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Conventional wisdom has it that too many cooks spoil the broth. But such judiciousness is not usually considered the basis for scientific pronouncements or international rulings on the need to limit the number of people in kitchens. But, when it comes to video games, conventional wisdom, not science, forms the basis for our thinking and

CAR-T cell therapy as a “game changer” therapy in paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia: past, present and future. A review of the British Society for Haematology.

Over the last decade, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy has emerged as a promising treatment modality for relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies in both children and adults. As an adoptive immune therapy, CAR-T cells have the potential to overcome disease that is resistant to chemoand radiotherapy as well as represent a viable option for those who

New York University researchers using leukemia-on-a-chip dissect the chemoresistance mechanisms in B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia bone marrow niche. A new opportunity for CAR-T cells therapy improving.

B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) blasts hijack the bone marrow (BM) microenvironment to form chemoprotective leukemic BM “niches,” facilitating chemoresistance and, ultimately, disease relapse. However, the ability to dissect these evolving, heterogeneous interactions among distinct B-ALL subtypes and their varying BM niches is limited with current in vivo methods. In this paper , New

HER2-Directed CAR T-Cell Therapy Appears Active in Phase I Trial for Advanced Sarcoma

Source Targeted Oncology Patients with sarcomas, including osteosarcoma in particular, have limited treatment options available, and the landscape has not advanced in over 40 years, according to Shoba A. Navai, MD. However, trials are now evaluating the potential role of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells as treatment of patients with sarcoma. In a phase

UNC Lineberger discovery would allow researchers to fine-tune activity of CAR-T cancer-hunting immune cells

A discovery by University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers could allow scientists to fine-tune genetically engineered immune cells to heighten their killing power against tumors or to decrease their activity level in the case of severe side effects. In a study published in Cancer Cell, researchers led by UNC Lineberger’s Gianpietro Dotti, MD, reported
