The Role of Adaptive Logistics and Patient Focus in ATMP Clinical Trial Success

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Friday, October 22, 2021

There are more than 2,600 ongoing regenerative medicine clinical trials, with nearly 1,200 companies actively developing these therapies. While the number of product approvals is trending upwards – 18 decisions expected over six geographies this year – the total number of commercial therapies remains low, with 9 cell-based immunotherapy, 8 gene and 17 cell therapy products having received market approval.

The realities of developing these products are well known. At clinical stages, the supply chain needs to be built so that it can scale to commercial complexity and the associated challenges that arise. Often, this is more patients across wider geographies, further away from manufacturing centers – but the product retains the same time and temperature requirements.

An integrated, adaptive logistics and patient-centric approach can account for the complexities that arise as the ATMP supply chain scales up and out. Successful clinical trial phases can support the move to commercialization and beyond, prioritizing the patient experience.

Join this webinar to learn more as the speakers discuss the adaptive logistics approach of:

  • How to get the therapy to the patient
  • How to get the patient to the therapy
  • Home care for patients as part of the trial
