Cancer Care


1. Biotherapy Center is committed to achieve the standardization of adoptive cell therapy. On a commission by the Ministry of Health, a study was conducted by us in 2013 for the setting up of the standards of adoptive cell therapy. And we are also developing new cell-based strategies to fight against cancer.  Some clinical trials of specific T cell therapy (TCR-T, CAR-T) are ongoing.

 

2. Biotherapy Center is also specialized in treating malignant melanoma and soft tissue sarcoma (STS). Chemotherapy, cytokines, molecularly targeted therapy and immunotherapy (such as PD-1 and CTLA-4 antibodies) are commonly used strategies to treat melanoma and STS.
