Hype or Hope? Can CAR-T Therapy Really Cure Cancer?

August 15, 2019 4:00 pm to 5:15 pm
Your immune system is amazing.
 
"It's a group of cells, organs and different substances in your body that constantly work to protect you from disease," says Juan Carlos Varela MD, a transplant physician and immunology expert at AdventHealth in Orlando.
 
So why can't the immune system kill cancer cells?
 
"It usually does," says Varela. "But sometimes the cancer outsmarts the immune system. CAR-T therapy is an exciting new process that restores the immune system's cancer-fighting capabilities."
