T Cell Immunotherapy for Synovial Sarcoma


Wanted to let this group know about some T cell immunotherapy trials in Los Angeles. These are ACT trials (Adoptive Cellular Therapy Trials) where the immune system is reprogrammed to attack synovial sarcoma. The trial is also looking at adding Ipilimumab (anti CTLA4 - immunotherapy approved for melanoma) to this therapy.

Links to the trials can be found at:
