Although chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T cells (CAR T-cells) have been shown to be effective against hematological malignancies, evidence of their potential against immune-suppressive solid tumors is missing. Key challenges for this include the selection of tumor-specific targets and the persistence of CAR-T cells upon adoptive transfer. In this study, teams from Biontech and TRON
