Facilitating Adoptive Cell Therapy Clinical Trials

Initial successes of adoptive cell therapies for the treatment of hematological malignancies are driving the development of many more cell-based therapies and, consequently, increasing the advancement of product candidates into the solid tumor setting. 

“The cell and gene therapy ecosystem is complex, so all stakeholders must learn from one another to continue to refine processes.”1


In this Applied Clinical Trials article, “Facilitating Adoptive Cell Therapy Clinical Trials,” learn about the current challenges in adoptive cell therapy clinical development from both the site and CRO perspective and gain insights into evolving approaches to improve the patient experience and bring these transformative therapies to more patients.
