The money is slated to go to research costs and could possibly go toward come aspect the CAR (Chimeric Antigen Receptors) T-cell therapy research project slated to begin during the first quarter of 2020. The only childhood cancer currently approved by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) to be possibly treated with this therapy is relapsed ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic. Leukemia).
