Explore how cell and gene therapy related experience can promote quality of data and higher patient accrual

During the last five years, the number of cell and gene therapies (CGT) have exponentially increased, stimulated by their efficacy and potential for cure. However, CGT can expose the patients to significant toxicities such as cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and neurotoxicities (ICANS), requiring specialised and accurate management associated with precise data capture and analysis. Timely and unrestricted support is crucial for the safe progress of CGT.  In addition, dealing with these “living therapies” represents what’s been called the most complex supply chain in the history of medicine.

This webinar will present and discuss the challenges involved in supporting CGT-related clinical trials. Attendees will gain first-hand learning from members of a multidisciplinary team that was developed at ICON for the successful support of CGT clinical trials.

The participants will learn the following during the presentation:
