What is Cellular Therapy?
Cellular therapy is a type of treatment that uses living cells and the patient’s own immune system to fight cancer.
One type of Cellular Therapy is Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy. CAR-T therapy involves collecting T-cells from the blood and genetically modifying them so they recognize and destroy cancer cells. After genetic modification, the T-cells are returned to the patient to work against cancer cells. The CAR-T acts like a living drug. It’s a revolutionary and highly-effective treatment option, especially for patients who didn’t see results with traditional chemotherapy and/or radiation.
