Cell and Gene Therapy Market – Rich Product Pipeline by Major Players Operating in Amgen, Biogen, BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, GlaxoSmithKline,


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2020 -- Cell therapy is the administration of living cells in patients for the treatment of a disease. The source of cell can be autologous or allogeneic, which can be derived from stem cells such as bone marrow. Stem cells therapy is used in bone marrow transplantation. Gene therapy is the introduction, removal, or change in the patient's genetic code for treatment of a disease. Moreover, it modifies the expression of an individual's genes or repair abnormal genes. The therapy involves administration of nucleic acid (DNA/RNA) with carriers called as vectors.

Increasing prevalence of cancer diseases is a major factor driving the Cell and Gene Therapy market growth. According to the World Cancer Research Funds and the American Institute for Cancer Research, in 2018, there were around 18 million cases of cancer, of which around 9.5 million were in men and around 8.5 million in women, globally. Moreover, introduction of innovative products and rich pipeline of cell and gene therapy is expected to boost the market growth. For instance, around 150 gene therapies are currently in the development stage. Gene replacement accounts for around two third of gene therapy pipeline. However, around 49% of gene therapies are under preclinical and discovery stages. During 2012-18, around 351 gene therapy deals were signed. For instance Gilead's Kite Pharma received exclusive rights to Sangamo Therapeutics' zinc finger nuclease gene editing technology, for $3.2bn.
