Transfusion of Ipscs-Derived Leukocytes to Kill Cancer
Abstract: Here we propose that the rejuvenation of leukocytes with iPSC technology in vitro and transfusion of cancer cellresistant white blood cells back to human body provide a prospective therapy for cancer patients.
Keywords: Ipscs, Leukocytes, Cancer
