AbstractThe recent successes of clinical trials with T cells genetically modified with either clonal T cell receptors or chimeric antigen receptors have also highlighted their potential toxicities. The aim of this focused review was to describe the adverse events observed in these clinical trials and to link them to the complex biology of genetically targeted T cells. Finally, strategies to overcome these toxicities will be proposed and discussed, including the use of suicide genes and other innovative gene therapy strategies.
