THYROID CANCER: CAR T cell therapy — potential in advanced thyroid cancer?
In the current era of immunotherapy successes, Min and colleagues report the promising preclinical development and efficacy of a CAR T cell therapy that recognizes ICAM-1, which is highly expressed in advanced thyroid cancers. Herein, we discuss the feasibility of this approach and its implications for future therapies to treat thyroid cancer.
