Cell & gene therapy (CGT) holds significant promise to advance patient treatments.

As shown by recent trends, such as the growing interest in CAR T-cell therapy and mRNA gene editing, CGT is the future. Despite its potential, CGT often does not progress from the lab to commercial markets. This is in part due to the unique requirements of working with these technologies, and the new challenges they present to clinical trials.

This roundtable reviews the necessary considerations and logistics of conducting CGT trials, and how sponsors and service providers can optimise their clinical research to maximise the prospect of success.

Other discussion points include:

  • The need for and management of study stopping rules to mitigate risks - protocol amendments - for patients and sites
  • The importance of transportation, including the complexity of handling living materials
  • How sequencing on site can reduce both the costs and risk associated with CGT clinical trials?
