Authors: Chen Y, Sun J, Liu H, Yin G, Xie Q Abstract Chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cells are T cells engineered to express specific synthetic antigen receptors that can recognize antigens expressed by tumor cells, which after the binding of these antigens to the receptors are eliminated, and have been adopted to treat several kinds of malignancies. Autoimmune diseases (AIDs), a class of chronic disease conditions, can be broadly separated into autoantibody-mediated and T cell-mediated diseases. Treatments for AIDs are focused on restoring immune tolerance. However, current treatments have little effect on imm...

This article was based on data from the 2003, 2008 and 2014 Ghana Demographic and Health Surveys. A bivariate statistical method was used to calculate the levels of uptake while three logit models were fitted to estimate the determinants of HIV uptake among the respondents. The total levels of the uptake of HIV testing among the respondents were 9.1%, 14.7% and 22.7% for 2003, 2008 and 2014, respectively; 15% overall.

CONCLUSIONS: Severe SE, not outcomes, was the most decisive attribute determining future HCRCT participation. Particular attention should be paid to providing clear information, in particular on severe SE, to potential participants. Immunotherapy would appear to be the best HCRCT candidate for both PLWH and physicians. However, if the risk of cancer could be avoided, gene therapy would become the preferred strategy for the latter and the second choice for the former. PMID: 32077248 [PubMed - in process]
