Abstract

Despite standard treatment with resection, radiation and chemotherapy, glioblastoma (GBM) remains a deadly disease with a dismal prognosis. Redirecting patient T cells to target the GBM-associated antigen, IL13Rα2, offers a promising translational immunotherapy with the potential to make a meaningful impact for patients with this disease.
