CAR-T firsthand accounts

Options

Is anyone willing to share their experiences with CAR-T? Any recent news on the topic? I only know the little bit I have read in the media.

    A different case, but some indication

    Here is a thread in which the patient with ALL (NOT a good blood cancer at all) was placed in full response by CAR-T. The side effects were rather concerning, but all worked out well. Advancement is very rapid in CAR-T. Jeff Bezos (Amazon) funded an entire wing at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to care for patients and develop CAR-T.
