    A new cancer treatment that could eventually replace chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants — along with their debilitating side effects — soon will be offered at two of Tampa Bay's top-tier hospitals.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved these so-called "CAR-T" treatments for adults this month.
