Killing brain tumors with CAR-Ts built with scorpion venom

Scientists at City of Hope have designed a novel chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) based on chlorotoxin (CLTX), a toxin found in scorpion venom. The novel CAR-T cell therapy successfully killed glioblastoma tumors with minimal off-target events and will now be ushered into clinical testing.
