St. Jude Reference #SJ-19-0024
Researchers at St. Jude have invented a cell therapy that consists of tumor-specific T cells in which DMNT3a is knocked out and the STAT5 pathway is activated by IL15. This is useful in developing immunotherapies for cancer and other diseases targeting defined antigens (pediatrics as well as adult). The researcher’s results indicate effector function was dramatically improved and development continues.
