The study therapy is designed to target HER2 protein overexpression, which can cause cancer cells to rapidly grow and form solid tumors. The study therapy is made from your own macrophage cells, which are a type of immune cell that helps protect you from infections.

However, once a cancer starts to grow and spread, the macrophages and other cells in your immune system may not be powerful enough to effectively recognize and attack all the tumor cells. The macrophage cell therapy may help support your body’s immune system in its fight against different kinds of cancer, including the following:
