Advances in Adoptive Cell Therapies
Originally aired on July 16, 2020
Cancer immunotherapies have revolutionized the way cancers are treated and have gained much traction in both pre-clinical and clinical research. Adoptive cell therapies (ACTs) involve the use of immune cells as anti-cancer agents and hold promise for the treatment of adult and pediatric cancer, ranging from liquid to solid tumors. One type of ACT involves chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-engineered immune cells, with two CAR T-cell-based therapies recently approved by the FDA, paving the way for the development of additional ACT therapies.
In this webinar, leaders in the field of CAR-based adoptive cell therapies, Katy Rezvani, Robbie Majzner, and Marco Ruella, will discuss the current challenges and advances in the development of these anti-cancer therapies and their clinical impact.
