Activity Summary :
Gain a better understanding of immunotherapy as a method to fight cancer, infection or other diseases through the use of substances to stimulate or suppress the immune system. Such therapy is based on an antigen-antibody reaction, which is programmed to combat a certain disease and the reaction results in a cytokine storm that (hopefully) destroys the intended target.
• Define cytokine storm.
• Discuss the mechanism of the side effects of monoclonal antibodies.
• Discuss the principles of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy (CART).
