They approved CAR T-Cell therapy for adults for the first time. Our Dana-Farber blog has more info on it, along with a good little video explaining what it is (I embedded it below).
Personally, I'm VERY far away from needing anything as powerful as this. As we write, "The patients Jacobson and her team are currently treating with CAR T-cell therapy at DF/BWCC have highly refractory and fast-growing blood cancers, and have suffered a year or more of disappointing results with relatively toxic therapies."
That's not me. But it's exciting news and there are follicular lymphoma patients who are part of the clinical trial. (There are many clinical trials underway studying CAR T-cell therapy), And it's comforting to know that this is a potential therapy down the line, should I ever need it.
