Explained: How does CAR T cell therapy work?

By engineering immune cells to effectively attack cancer cells, researchers established a new paradigm for cancer therapy. 

For decades, treating cancer has relied on invasive methods like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Researchers are exploring new ways to target cancer cells by harnessing the body's immune system. One such approach, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy, has emerged as a powerful tool in the fight against cancer.
