The Promise of CAR T-Cells: Progress and Challenges in Cancer Immunotherapy

The Promise of CAR T-Cells: Progress and Challenges in Cancer Immunotherapy

Over a decade since the first clinical trials began, long-term follow-up data have affirmed CAR T-cells’ ability to induce durable remissions in certain patients. However, the therapy also faces challenges, as not all treated cancers respond equally well and toxicity remains a concern. Ongoing research aims to optimize various aspects of CAR T-cell treatment to improve outcomes on a broader scale.

    An international team has discovered a spectrum characteristic of an altermagnetic material with X-ray magnetic circular dichroism.

  • A liquid crystal source of photon pairs
    on June, 2024 at 6:19 pm

    Spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC), as a source of entangled photons, is of great interest for quantum physics and quantum technology, but so far it could be only implemented in solids. Researchers have demonstrated, for the first time, SPDC in a liquid crystal. The results open a path […]

  • Strengthener for graphene
    on June, 2024 at 6:19 pm

    Layers of carbon atoms in a honeycomb array are a true supermaterial: their unusually high conductivity and favorable mechanical properties could further the development of bendable electronics, new batteries, and innovative composite materials for aeronautics and space flight. However, the […]

The IUCN Red List

Established in 1964, the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global extinction risk status of animal, fungus and plant species.

Scott Hartman's Skeletal Drawings

Scott Hartman’s detailed and rigorous skeletal reconstructions set the standard for sauropods: he’s now become the first port of call when looking for precise, anatomically correct work.

After 11 years, Boston Dynamics has said goodbye to its humanoid robot ATLAS HD. The robotics company says it’s time for ATLAS to “kick back and relax” in retirement, letting the new all electric ATLAS take over. This video was shared to remember ATLAS HD’s great moments and those not so great.

 

Header Banner: AZT the development name for zidovudine was the first drug launched to treat HIV. It was used in high doses and as monotherapy, causing horrendous side effects and resistance in the HIV virus. In the subsequent 30 years clinical trials has led to the development of single tablet, once daily regimens to treat HIV with limited side effects. Now a two pill combination called Truvada can be given to individuals to prevent the risk of acquiring HIV (shown in the DarkDrug logo).
