CAR T-cell therapy is an effective treatment in which the patient’s immune cell known as T cells are derived and changed in the laboratory in order to bind to cancer cells and finally kill them.
The patient's blood flows through a tube to an apheresis machine that separates the white blood cells that includes T cells and ultimately sends the rest of the blood back to the patient's vein. A special receptor known as chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) is inserted into the T cells in the laboratory for this procedure. Countless CAR T cells are developed in the laboratory to be given to the patient by infusion to treat cancer. CAR T cells are effective in getting bound to an antigen on the cancer cells and ultimately kill them to cure cancer.
