Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs), have been used in cell therapy for treatment of various inflammatory conditions. Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) engineered MSCs have the potential to create an MSCs with higher immunosuppression activity and in-vivo persistence.
PhotonPharma’s Innocell involves sampling a patient’s tumor cells, inactivating them so that they are unable to replicate, then administering them back to the patient.
