NEW! Rapid Learn + Listen package

CAR T-cell therapy

Learn

CAR T-cell therapy is a treatment that re-engineers a patient’s T-cells with synthetic proteins called chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) which enhance the T-cell’s ability to recognise and kill cancer cells. It has proven effective in some diseases including B-cell malignancies, although it is not effective in all patient populations. 

Our rapid learning package includes a 5-minute mini-module to help you:

  • explain how CAR T-cell therapy works to treat some cancers
  • identify the indications for CAR T-cell therapy
  • describe the CAR T-cell therapy clinical process
  • list common toxicities associated with CAR T-cell therapy and identify their signs and symptoms.
