Justin Stebbing: The first time invariant natural killer cells has ever been used as a cell therapy

Justin Stebbing shared a post on LinkedIn:

“Super-thrilled to see our paper finally out in Nature Communications, the first time invariant natural killer cells, a type of T cell, has ever been used as a cell therapy. We were able to rapidly scale this during the pandemic and all our patients were ventilated and critically unwell with acute respiratory distress syndrome (5 on vv-ECMO). It looks really safe, and there are tantalising signs of efficacy including persistence of this unique cell type, which bridges the innate and adaptive immune systems, in the patients. So many thanks to an amazing team to get this out there, especially to the Team at Mink run by Jennifer Buell, Mark Exley, Marco Purbhoo and Marc van Dijk and the investigators led by Terese Hammond. ”
