Hi Diaz,
How are you feeling? Are you doing better in the clinical trial? I really hope that you are and you get to finish it this time around. Take care and just wanted to drop by and say hi.

Sincerely,
Liz

They are using T-cells, but are re-programming them to fight against the common B-cell lymphomas. So, the study is actually for those with B-cell. Still, it offers a lot of hope, as this immunotherapy is one of the latest means of attacking the malignancy - using the boy's own cells, but in a form tweaked to seek out B-cell cancer.
