Lecture Summary

In the last five years, the introduction of cellular therapies has revolutionized the management of haematological cancers. The success of this approach has encouraged others to seek novel means to treat a variety of critical illness syndromes. In this talk, we will review the current state of cell-based immune modulation for ARDS and sepsis. We will address the classification and biology of investigational cell therapies, alongside a discussion of the challenges associated with scaling them for widespread clinical use.
