Upfront covers the landmark approval of Kymriah, how gold nanoparticles can bypass chemotherapy toxicity, and why drugs fail in clinical trials, or even post-approval. In NextGen, experts cover the challenges of manufacturing cell therapies, and why ex vivo screening could boost new drug development. Plus, we sit down with Abhijit Mukherjee from Dr Reddys to talk about the business of generics.
