ASCO 2021 – TIL and the words from one of the most amazing melanoma advocates

Forums General Melanoma Community ASCO 2021 – TIL and the words from one of the most amazing melanoma advocates

      Sorry I have no words of wisdom regarding resetting your printer, fake docs who can cure everything with a salve, or the best IT/home schooling resources!

      But, I do have a report on TIL (adoptive cell therapy, using tumor infiltrating lymphocytes).  Here is a link to a report addressing the original TIL studies from way back in the day (2012) –

      TIL has come a long way since it was first used in poor cancerous little mice in 1986 and in the first humans with melanoma in 1988.  Many changes in methods and techniques have been developed since then, with many dear ratties continuing to pave the way.  This post includes some new data presented at ASCO this year and an incredibly moving and important video from a dear one/amazing melanoma advocate.  I hope you take a look –

      Best to all.  Enjoy your Fourth! – les
