A three-part documentary named "First in Human" was recently broadcast on the Discovery Channel, following four specific clinical trials at the National Institutes of Health.

One was the first human trial of CAR-T treatment for leukemia.

TIME Magazine also had an article about this CAR-T treatment: Cancer's Newest Miracle Cure.

Big price tag on it.

Just read that it cost $475,000 for one dose. Hopefully they can find a way to the price down.

I missed part one and can't find that it will be repeated. Do you know where it might be?
