The Arrival of

cell & gene therapies

in the Epoch of Precision Medicine

Cell and Gene Therapy innovations are creating increasingly personalized and powerful treatments. They have the potential to transform patient care and solve previously untreatable conditions. For many of us, understanding Cell and Gene Therapy is both daunting and exciting. What makes them unique? How are they developed, and what lies ahead for the industry?

Our team is passionate about clearly communicating the most innovative areas of the life sciences. To help prepare the industry for this new therapeutic age, check out some key highlights in this infographic.

WHAT ARE CELL & GENE THERAPIES?

GENE THERAPY

Gene therapies treat genetic diseases by replacing dysfunctional genes. Genetic information is delivered to patients using “vectors,” such as adeno-associated viruses (AAVs), lentiviruses, liposomes, and beyond.

CELL THERAPY

Cell therapies treat diseases with living cells isolated from humans. These cells are commonly modified to increase target recognition and activity.

AN INSIDE LOOK AT CELL AND GENE THERAPY STRATEGIES

Unsurprisingly, not all cell and gene therapies are alike. Generally speaking, gene therapies can be categorized as either “integrating” or “non-integrating, while cell therapies can be grouped as either “autologous” or “allogeneic.”

REAL WORLD APPLICATIONS

GENE THERAPY

Luxturna®, the first FDA approved gene therapy, used AAV vectors to replace mutant RPE65 genes to improve vision in patients with RPE65-associated blindness.

CELL THERAPIES

CAR-T Therapies (like, Yescarta®, Abecama®, and Kymriah®) use genetically modified T-cells to display CARs. CARs function as artificial T-cell receptors that target CAR-Ts to specific biomarkers associated with diseases like cancer.

That day back in 2010 when I was infused with my CAR-Ts, and my tumor cells disappeared – it meant there was a whole new treatment paradigm.

THE DISCOVERY & DEVELOPMENT PATHWAY

Given their complexity, it truly takes a village to bring a cell or gene therapy to market. Below, we highlight some of the key steps and stakeholders that comprise the vital ecosystem creating these life-changing therapies.
