Leukemia cell with CAR T-lymphocyte, SEM


Color enhanced scanning electron microscope image of a CAR-T lymphocyte (reddish) attacks a leukemia cell (green). CAR-T lymphocytes are used for immunotherapy against cancer (CAR stands for chimeric antigen receptor). T cells are taken from the patient and genetically modified to carry a chimeric antigen receptor. After the proliferation of the CAR-expressing T cells, they are transfused back into the patient and can directly detect the cancer cells carrying the antigen. The binding of a CAR-T cell to a tumor cell initiates an appropriate immune defense. Magnification is 5335x at 10 cm wide.
