Advancing Medicine

This special PDF supplement focuses on one of the most exciting fields of medicine that has emerged in recent years – advanced therapies. According to the EMA, advanced therapy medicinal products are medicines based on genes or cells that offer “groundbreaking new opportunities for the treatment of disease and injury”.

A handful of cell and gene therapy products have already been approved by US or EU regulators – and more are set to follow. Cell and gene therapies are still a very long way from the hype of complete cures and revolutionary treatment options, but many are encouraged by the speed at which the field is progressing. We know that cell therapies can have clinical effects; the questions now are what conditions can benefit? How do we maximize efficacy and safety? And how do we scale up manufacture to reach larger patient numbers?

In this supplement, gurus from across the field discuss the progress that advanced medicines are making, and how the industry is approaching the complex challenges posed by the supply chain and commercial manufacture.
