Q12 In highly active NK cell therapy, are all the cells increased in culture NK cells?

Among 15 billion cells on average that are administered, NK (natural killer) cells account for 20 to 80%. The number of NK cells can exceed 10 billion per dosing.
All the cells other than NK cells are activated T cells (mainly cytotoxic T cells), so there are no useless lymphocytes, with respect to fighting cancer.
