A variety of tumor immunotherapies that activate T cells are effective in treating many types of cancer. However, due to the existence of the blood-brain barrier, immune cells cannot effectively infiltrate brain tumors, which is also an important reason why immunotherapy is difficult to effect on glioblastoma. The blood-brain… Continue Reading Successfully cross the blood-brain barrier, will CAR-T become a new breakthrough in the treatment of brain cancer?
Traditional gene therapy and emerging gene editing therapy for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), which one is better? Some recent research may give us some new thinking. There are approximately 300,000 DMD patients worldwide. Due to the presence of mutations, patients are unable to produce dystrophin normally, causing atrophy… Continue Reading Traditional gene therapy vs. gene editing, who is the king of DMD treatment?
I The development of immunology has gone through a very long process, and people’s understanding of the immune system has been very shallow for a long time. Although people have long recognized the importance of IL-2 as a cytokine, its role is not known. Studies in the 1960s found that… Continue Reading Tumor immune cell therapy, difficult to move forward
Tumor immunotherapy can treat cancer by activating the body’s own immune system. However, tumor immunotherapy is a large class of treatments, including many research directions, such as checkpoint inhibitors, tumor vaccines, oncolytic viruses, and adoptive cell transfer (ACT). In general, adoptive cell therapy refers to T cell-related therapies,… Continue Reading Where is the new generation of cell therapy technology?
