CDMOs Drive Cell and Gene Therapy from Behind the Scenes

As more of the cell and gene therapies revolutionizing healthcare are approved for use, innovator companies usually get the credit. But many therapies would never make it to market without the expertise and capabilities of contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) operating behind the scenes. Learn more about how CDMOs enable new cell and gene therapies to come to market, and how Droplet Digital PCR can help.

A Novel CAR-T Cell Therapy Approach Using Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting and Stem Cell Transplantation

Successful chimeric antigen receptor- (CAR-) T cell therapy requires a target antigen that is unique to cancer cells. But what happens when there are no unique antigens? Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center addressed this problem by replacing healthy non-target cells with genetically modified versions lacking the CAR-T cell target. Their results, published in PNAS, may provide a new avenue for treatment of some types of cancer.
