Adoptive cell therapy is widely recognized and utilized in the field of immuno-oncology for its promise to elicit effective and long-term anti-cancer immunity.  Cancer immunotherapy harnesses the power of the immune system, either by adoptively transferring tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes or modified peripheral blood immune cells into cancer patients, to mediate long lasting anti-tumor responses.
