Engineered T Cells

Engineered T cells are an exciting new development for patients with B cell cancers.  This will take a while to become "prime time."  Once some huge logistic details are worked out - this could potentially apply to most types of lymphoma and CLL.

The science is early but encouraging.  I've written an analysis of the technology previously (how it works / dangers / etc) but came upon this video at a Lymphoma and Leukemia Society volunteers event.

If this doesn't get you excited and bring a tear to your eye at the same time - check your pulse.    I've watched it four times and welled up with a tear every time.  It is less than four minutes - I highly encourage you to watch it!
