CART-19 therapy does not work for solid tumors - yet

Postby H is for Hawk » Tue Jan 19, 2016 7:59 pm

Here is an article from the 1/17/16 Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper about immunotherapy and its limitations. One disapointment - CART T-cell therapy, where the patient's immune cells are engineered to target the CD19 antigen; it does not appear to work for solid tumors. There was a lot of success with leukemia & lymphoma clinical trials using this approach in the last two years.
