Description: "CARS", or chimeric antigen receptors, an experimental approach to have a CLL patient's own immune system fight the cancer, has received worldwide publicity. A few very sick patients treated at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia by Drs. Carl June and David Porter had dramatic, positive turnaround in their health. But it didn't work for everyone. Nevertheless, patients have deluged the researchers with queries, "Could this trial save my life?" In this interview with Patient Power's Andrew Schorr, recorded at an international meeting of CLL experts, Dr. Porter explains the research is very early. But he adds that we may be nearing a time of breakthroughs in using the patient's own immune system to beat CLL, and other cancers too.
