CAR T stands for chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, which is a type of treatment known as immunotherapy. With CAR T therapy, your T cells are modified to recognize cancer cells in order to more effectively target and destroy them.

Innovative science

CAR T cells are created by collecting your own T cells and sending them to a manufacturing facility. At the facility, the T cells are modified by adding a CAR transgene. Once the CAR transgene is added, your new CAR T cells are returned to the treatment facility to be infused back into your body. In your body, these CAR T cells work to recognize and attack your cancer.
