Immunotherapy Clinical Trials: Sue Scott’s Story of Survival
An inside look at a Center for Cancer Research trial with Dr. Christian Hinrichs and his patient, Sue Scott. Dr. Hinrichs conducts basic and clinical research to discover and develop novel T-cell therapies for the treatment of patients with cancer. This work includes a clinical trial of HPV-targeted tumor-infiltrating T cells for patients with HPV+ cancers, which has demonstrated that this treatment can mediate complete regression of cervical cancer in some patients. Dr. Hinrichs' laboratory also has discovered genes for T-cell receptors that target HPV, and his group is testing new gene therapy treatments based on these receptors for patients with advanced HPV+ tumors. The Center for Cancer Research (CCR) is a part of the National Cancer Institute. For more on CCR: ccr.cancer.gov. To search for clinical trials: trials.cancer.gov.
