A new technique improves the safety of cancer immunotherapy.
Artist’s concept of a domain-swapped T cell receptor (TCR) engaging a peptide presented by a tumor cell. In TCR gene therapy, genes encoding a tumor-specific TCR are introduced to a patient’s T cells, retargeting them to attack cancer cells.
