SOLVING CHALLENGES FOR ADVANCED CGT DEVELOPMENT
Over the past several years, novel cell and gene therapy (CGT) products have rapidly progressed through the clinic, and several have gained regulatory approval. Advances in both cell and molecular biology as well as immunology and more efficient manufacturing paradigms have led to an explosion in new CGT products.
Gone are the days of relatively straightforward plasmid DNA and stem cell therapies. Today, new product paradigms including CAR-Ts, novel viral vectors, microbiome-derived bacterial products, phage therapies and mRNA therapies constantly provide new challenges to product developers.
What are some of the scientific, quality, and regulatory hurdles developers face with novel CGT products and how can biotech work most effectively with regulators to get these promising products into patients? Our panel will discuss some of the CMC and nonclinical challenges commonly faced with novel CGT products and how we might overcome them to bring these complex, but promising therapies to the clinic.
Listen in to Mike Grace, David Pepperl, Diana Colleluori, Robert Kutner, and Chris Scull as they discuss the challenges and some solutions.
