Cell-Killing Therapy Shows Promise For
Lupus Patients
Five lupus patients are given genetically modified versions of their own immune cells show vast improvement. The treatment, called chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) therapy, involves isolating T cells—sentries of the immune system—from a patient’s blood and genetically modifying them to seek and destroy other cells that are causing disease. The engineered T cells are then reinfused into the patient.
