The day ahead of Thanksgiving, Juno managed to once again stun its investors with the news that its lead CAR-T, JCAR015, killed two people. They died from cerebral edemas triggered by neurotoxicity. And the death toll from brain swelling triggered by its toxic combo has now reached six, including a death in a separate study. (John Carroll, Endpoints News)
