Using the body's own cells against cancer
"Our aim is to further develop the CAR-T cell therapy for leukemia and other tumors through our research as well as to establish this approach in the treatment of children."
You are here:
New hopes for the treatment of childhood cancer
CAR-T cells in the clinic – present status
Not every child can be permanently healed with conventional therapy. Relapse of the disease occurs in many patients, who then have a much lower survival rate. In the U.S. it has already been shown that leukemia can be successfully treated with CAR-T cells, even in patients who have relapsed. We are working intensely on applying this therapy at Charité so that we can make it available for our little patients.
With your donation, you have the opportunity to gift new hopes to children suffering from cancer and their families.
We are grateful for every donation!

First, we were speechless and then just happy when Fabian Waldschock, Chairman of the Foundation Kinder Krebs Aktion Deutschland e.V., presented us with a check worth 50,000€ on behalf of all donors of the foundation. With this donation, the costs for reagents and consumables for a whole year (!) are covered and it is a great support for our research project! We would like to thank the foundation and every donor for this generous donation.
