Gérard i am not sure to understand perfectly what is this treatment about.
 Is it taking a patient’s own immune cells and turning them against their cancer?

Hi Muriel,
I don't know about this specific application but what is important is that this new technique is authorized in human trials.
Doctors can use this technique for any domain.
