Bioprocessing & Bioproduction In-Depth Focus 2021
Featured in this in-depth focus, articles exploring why cleanroom infrastructure must transform to meet the needs of the cell and gene therapy industry and discussing a novel platform for discovering and developing genetically-targeted therapies for autoimmune diseases.
- Cleanroom infrastructure innovation to fulfil the needs of cell and gene therapies
Biopharmaceuticals have transformed the patient care landscape, but alongside this step change in treatment capability comes the need for a similar paradigm shift in manufacturing capability. Here, Maik W Jornitz, President & CEO of G-CON Manufacturing Inc. highlights how cleanroom infrastructure must develop to keep pace with ever evolving industry needs.
- A new small molecule drug discovery and development platform for HLA-associated autoimmune diseases
In the arsenal of approved small molecule drugs, effective, genetically-targeted therapies for the treatment of autoimmune diseases are conspicuously scarce. ImmunoMolecular Therapeutics (IM Therapeutics) has developed a paradigm for the discovery and development of new molecular entities as a broad platform for blocking genetic targets that confer risk of disease development and are key to triggering autoimmune responses. Ryan J Schutte and Robert B Perni explain more.
