Changing How the World Fights Cancer
With the discovery of the first gene therapy to be approved by the FDA, Penn Medicine is leading the world in immunotherapy research. Our researchers are working relentlessly to realize the full potential of this innovative approach: reprogramming the body’s own immune cells to seek and destroy every last cancer cell.
One way that we’re doing this is through an immunotherapy treatment option called CAR T cell therapy. A personalized cellular therapy, it teaches the body’s immune systems to recognize and kill cancer cells.
CAR T cell therapy has become a powerful addition to Penn’s cancer-fighting arsenal of surgery, targeted therapies, and precision radiation treatments. We have treated nearly 500 blood cancer patients in CAR T clinical trials.
