Learn about an upcoming clinical trial at The James aims to reprogram a patient’s immune cells to attack a specific relapsed blood cancer, called multiple myeloma, in this week's Toward a Cancer-Free World Segment.

The idea is to “super-charge” the patient’s immune system so that it responds to the cancer by attacking it – all while offering the patient a drug-free treatment alternative.

NCI Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center for Prevention, Detection, and Treatment
Introduction

The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute strives to create a cancer-free world by integrating scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care, a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. Ohio State is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and one of only four centers funded by the NCI to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials. The NCI recently rated Ohio State’s cancer program as “exceptional,” the highest rating given by NCI survey teams. As the cancer program’s 210-bed adult patient-care component, The James is a “Top Hospital” as named by the Leapfrog Group and one of the top cancer hospitals in the nation as ranked by U.S.News & World Report.
