Learn about the CAR T-cell therapy process for blood cancers.

What is CAR T-cell therapy?

T cells are a type of white blood cell. They’re a part of your immune system and help your body fight infection. Their role is to recognise and destroy anything that shouldn’t be there (abnormal cells). Cancer cells are an abnormal cell.

But T-cells sometimes fail to recognise or effectively destroy cancer cells.

Scientists can genetically modify (change) your T-cells to make CAR T-cells for blood cancer treatment.
