Activated T Cells and Activated T Cells Armed with BiSpecific Antibodies Directed at Cancer Antigens are Poor Responders to Alloantigens May Help Engraftment and Improve Anti-Tumor Effects
BackgroundThe treatment of hematologic malignancies with allogeneic stem cell transplant is limited by the numbers of allogeneic donors. Umbilical cord blood stem transplants have been an important alternative source of hematopoietic stem cells. However, failure or delayed engraftment remains the critical barrier to the success of the transplants...
