@emyliander, Your question is a good one. I'm including the video here for anyone else who may be wondering with CAR-T cell therapy is

Mayo Clinic is one of the first cancer centers certified to provide treatment. The Mayo Clinic CAR T-Cell Therapy Program offers a new cancer immunotherapy for people with aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The treatment, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, was approved October 2017 by the Food and Drug Administration for certain types of lymphoma.
