Abstract

Engineering T cells with chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) has demonstrated remarkable success in eradicating hematological malignancies. In this issue of Immunity, June and colleagues demonstrate the broad antitumor efficacy of a newly-designed CAR targeting the O-linked hypoglycosylated epitopes Tn and sialyl-Tn on cancer-associated MUC-1.
