A new treatment that apparently works like a vaccine for leukemia patients is coming to the UAE.

The CAR-T cell therapy is used on a relapsing leukemia patient's immune system.

Dr. Ghulam Mufti is Professor of Haematological Oncology at King’s College Hospital London, which carried out the research.

He explains how the vaccine will work.

Dr. Mufti is optimistic it will change the prognosis of patients.
