  1. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: A Sensitivity Scale for Targeting T Cells with Chimeric Antigen Receptors (CAR) and Bispecific T Cell Engagers (BiTE)

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jennifer Stone

    Using a patients immune system to target cancer and maintain long-term surveillance is an attractive goal. Although T cells can respond potently to tumors, immune tolerance mechanisms often result in deletion or inactivation of those T cells expressing specific T cell receptors (TCRs) against...
