Cell therapies represent an exciting new treatment paradigm, a potentially viable treatment option for many eligible patients, with multiple global approvals expected in the coming years. As with any new and emerging advanced therapy, delivering on that promise requires navigating product and patient journeys that are unique from those that have long-dominated pharmaceutical development.
