The future of personalized and targeted cancer therapy

WASHINGTON, D.C. Harnessing the patient's own immune system to fight cancer through genetic modification of their own cells is rapidly emerging as a promising treatment option. Although these therapies provide great opportunities, they also pose unique challenges as investigators seek to refine the approach and expand the treatment option to more patients. A panel discussion at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013 featuring the University of Pennsylvania physician-scientist leading the research team whose work has spurred worldwide attention to chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) technologies, and a trial participant whose leukemia remains in remission more than two and a half years after being treated with his own engineered cells will explore the future of personalized cellular therapies.
