Experts' Insights in Advanced Therapies: Development of Allogeneic CAR-T Cells and the Related Opportunities and Challenges
Although autologous therapies offer great advantages in terms of host compatibility, their manufacturing presents challenges along several parameters, including control strategy and supply chain. Allogeneic therapies, on the other hand, offer an opportunity to streamline therapy manufacturing for "off-the-shelf" supply, especially in case of emergency treatments. In this edition of Experts' Insights in Advanced Therapies, Kim Nguyen, Vice President of CMC at Precision Biosciences describes the company’s strategy in streamlining allogeneic CAR-T therapy manufacturing.
