Antigen-agnostic tumour tagging for CAR T cell therapy

T cells with a chimaeric antigen receptor specific for fluorescein isothiocyanate can be directed against solid tumours via the intratumoural administration of a fluorescein-isothiocyanate-conjugated amphiphile that inserts itself in cell membranes.

The cover illustrates that the tagging of tumour cells with an amphiphilic ligand for a chimaeric antigen receptor on T cells allows for the universal redirection of the cells against solid tumours.
