Intratumoural activation of CAR T cells via focused ultrasound

The activity of engineered T cells within tumours can be controlled via the heat generated by pulses of focused ultrasound by modifying the cells to express a chimeric antigen receptor under the control of a promoter for the heat-shock protein.
