CAR-T therapy: Genetically re-engineering your cells to target cancer

What if we could treat cancer with limited chemotherapy, radiation and surgery? Thanks to years of research in the field of immunotherapy, for some patients, that hypothetical may now be a reality. Immunotherapy uses a patient’s own immune system to fight off or prevent disease. This approach enhances or trains a patient’s white blood cells … Continue reading CAR-T therapy: Genetically re-engineering your cells to target cancer

Transport teams connect moms and babies with lifesaving care

Colon cancer research gets help from an unlikely source: Grape seeds

Contrary to popular belief, cancer research involves a lot more than studying drugs for chemotherapy. To have the greatest impact in cancer care, we have to target the disease from all angles. Exploring those alternative angles is precisely what you’ll find many of the researchers doing in the lab at Baylor Scott & White Research … Continue reading Colon cancer research gets help from an unlikely source: Grape seeds
