Since T cells are one of our body’s premier defenses, the sheer number of them proliferated causes some of these unpleasant reactions.

While they are not always as effective in every individual who needs them, there are ways for researchers to improve their potency. Thankfully, this work is showing great promise in helping beat or significantly extend the prognosis in many cancer patients.
